I suppose some of you have heard of the shootings that took place at the Trolley Square Mall in Salt Lake City yesterday. There is some coverage here on the front page of the Deseret News. What has caught my eye is the name of the perpetrator, Solejman Talovic, an 18 year old Bosnian refugee. Both the name and the country of origin are interesting. Solejman seems to be an alternate spelling of Sulejman, a name that googling associates with the Muslim communities in Bosnia, Albania, and Kosovo; it seems to be the arabic version of Soloman. Now, I am not saying there is a Muslim connection in this case, it is far too early and the details are still very sketchy, Solejman may be just another teenager in a trench coat. But I will be keeping an eye out for developments.
