The knifeman then fled the scene following the attack just before 10pm on Saturday night at a residence in Monsey, about 30 miles north of New York City.

Ramapo Police Chief Brad Weidel later confirmed a suspect had been arrested and a vehicle of interest located.

The incident took place during a gathering at the house of a Hasidic rabbi, according to the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council (OJPAC) for the Hudson Valley region.

Sydney's fire chief has refused to rule out cancelling the city's New Year's Eve fireworks display, despite Australia's prime minister insisting they will go ahead.

Hundreds of thousands of people have signed a petition calling for the display to be cancelled – with the money used to fight the devastating bushfires burning around the country.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the fireworks would go ahead “in the midst of the challenges that we face” in order to “express to the world just how optimistic and positive we are as a country.”

However, New South Wales fire commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said he would cancel the display it he thought it was too risky.

The country’s capital Canberra has cancelled its fireworks display over bushfire fears.

The FAI will resume its Annual General Meeting later today.

In July, the AGM was adjourned because the association was not in a position to present its accounts to delegates.

Earlier this month, the FAI requested a financial rescue package of €18million from the Government.

The accounts will be presented to delegates this afternoon.
