Finland: One Dead, Eight Injured in Turku Knife Attack, Prime Suspect Held

Finland: One Dead, Eight Injured in Turku Knife Attack, Prime Suspect Held

"Two dead and six injured", Turku police tweeted after the assault in a market square.

Police shot the suspected attacker in the leg and arrested him. In addition to witnesses at the scene they also said there many surveillance cameras in the city center that could contribute to the probe as well as video footage taken by bystanders. "The rest are in stable condition", Turku University Hospital director Petri Virolainen earlier told AFP.

At least three people died Friday and several others were hurt in separate stabbing attacks in Finland and Germany, authorities said.

South-West Finland police said on Twitter a security operation was underway in the city center, and asked people to avoid the area.

It is believed two people are dead and six others have been injured, including one woman pushing a baby in a pram.

"The police is searching for possible more perpetrators in Turku".

The AP reports that witness Laura Laine described the attack to YLE: "We heard that a young woman was screaming". Police has shot at suspected perpetrator. People were allowed to return to the city centre a few hours later. In late July, a knife-wielding man shouting "Allahu Akbar" attacked police on the Spanish-Moroccan border, injuring an officer. One person has been apprehended. The police is asking people to stay away from central Turku.

Transfer Windows Could End Early
Closing the transfer window early is a "potentially huge development for English football", says the Daily Telegraph . The Times report that the vast majority of Premier League clubs are willing to see to the change.

An Yle reporter at the scene says that the body on the ground at Puutori had been covered. "I don't know what he looked like, I just saw this knife, I just saw this knife... it was just very bad".

Police have said that security has been increased at Helsinki airport and at train stations across the region.

"We saw a man at the square, he had knife in his hand, and he was swinging it in the air".

Police said the suspect in custody was being treated in hospital.

The prime minister of neighboring Sweden, Stefan Lofven, tweeted that he had expressed his condolences to Sipila.

Finnish premier Juha Sipilä said the government was monitoring the situation.
