  • Moroccans at Center of Terror Attacks in Spain, Finland

On Friday, two people were killed and eight others were injured in a knife attack in Turku's market square.

The National Bureau of Investigation said it had organized a reconstruction of Friday's knife rampage in the western city of Turku and raided addresses in its Runosmaki district.

The main suspect, 18-year-old Moroccan asylum seeker Abderrahman Mechkah, is being investigated for two cases of murder with terrorist intent and eight attempted murders with terrorist intent, the police said. Four other Moroccan men detained over possible links to the Turku attack have cooperated with police but their role has yet to be fully established, Granroth added.

"I saw the man stabbing several times a woman who was pushing strollers".

A team of officers heard gunshots inside and feared "an active shooter situation" so they approached the house, Bruno said. Two police officers shot: If you are inclined to do so, say a prayer for our two #JSO officers that have been shot.

Supo's communications chief Jyri Rantala confirms that his organisation received the tip, but that no concrete information about a terrorist attack was mentioned.

The suspect arrived in Finland in 2016 and was an asylum seeker, police said.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry on Monday expressed "shock" at Friday's deadly stabbing attack in Turku, Finland.

The British man was stabbed repeatedly while he helped victims of the attack. He had gone to the aid of a woman who later died. SUPO said it receives around a thousand pieces of such information per year and it has to prioritize. Authorities say they now have evidence he drove the van that plowed down the city's famed Las Ramblas promenade, killing 13 pedestrians and injuring more than 120 others. It comes after the country raised its terror threat level from "low" to "elevated" in June, the second of four levels, due to increased risk of attack by Isis. The attack was "a likely terror act", Finland's intelligence agency said Saturday.
