Moroccan Gang Arrested After Fatal Knife Rampage In Finland

Moroccan Gang Arrested After Fatal Knife Rampage In Finland

"The incidents were initially investigated as murders, but in the light of further information received during the night, the offences now include murders with terrorist intent and their attempts", police officials said.

Following the attacks on Friday, police shot the suspected attacker in the leg and arrested him. The suspect is in police custody and is being treated at the hospital, police said. Among the eight injured victims are one British, two Swedish, and one Italian citizen.

Finland's Prime Minister Juha Sipila said his government was monitoring the situation closely. Contrary to earlier reports, police said they were not looking for other suspects.

Witness Laura Laine said she was alerted by hearing a young woman screaming loudly at the corner of the market square. The attacker shouted extremist slogans allegedly linking him to the Daesh Takfiri terrorists, they said.

The attack comes as Turku is celebrating two important events in Finland: the country's 100 anniversary, as well as the 500 anniversary of the Reformation. "We understood he had stabbed someone", she told YLE.

Finnish police recommend people avoid the area.

"He is an 18-year-old Moroccan citizen", it said.

This onslaught began in Turku (a Finland city with more than 180,000) when a man stabbed a woman on the main square. The attack took place in a public area.

Finnish police raised their readiness across the country in the wake of a stabbing incident in central Turku on Friday.

Turku lies around 140 kilometers (around 85 miles) west of the capital, Helsinki.

Finnish television channel MTV said security had been heightened at Helsinki's global airport but didn't give details.

This attack arrives shortly after multiple attacks in Barcelona, Spain.
