Finland killings: Stabbings in Turku a ‘terror attack’
Police in Finland say they believe the killing of two people in the south-western city of Turku on Friday was a terrorist attack.
They said the attacker, who was shot in the leg by police and taken into custody, was an 18-year-old Moroccan.
The two people stabbed to death were both Finnish. Eight people were also injured, among them two Swedes and one Italian.
Officers carried out a number of raids overnight.
Police said in a statement: “The act had been investigated as murder, but during the night we received additional information which indicates that the criminal offences are now terrorist killings.”
They said the identity of the 18-year-old Moroccan was known, but they have not released it.
Sad to see the dhimmi reactions by native Finlanders in the #Turku thread
