Man Stabs Several People In Finland
Has the world suddenly gone terror crazy?
Barely 24 hours after 14 people were killed in the Barcelona terror attack, a man has been arrested for stabbing several people in Finland's western city of Turku.
Finnish broadcaster, YLE says several people were seen lying on the ground in Puutori square in central Turku.
On Twitter, police urged people to avoid that part of Turku.
One person has been "apprehended," Finnish police said, adding "several people had been stabbed." Details of their conditions weren't immediately available.
Tabloid, Ilta-Sanomat says six people were injured, one man and five women, and that a woman with stroller was attacked by a man with a large knife.
Prime Minister Juha Sipila said the government is closely monitoring the ongoing police operation and holding an emergency meeting.
