Terror in Finland: 2 murdered, multiple injured by Muslim terrorist screaming allahu akbar
Two people have been murdered after a Muslim terrorist armed with a knife stabbed several people in Finland before being shot by armed police.
Eyewitnesses reported hearing gunshots and seeing at least one person lying dead on the pavement.
In a video purporting to show the aftermath of the attack, a scream of what seems to be ‘allahu akbar’ can be heard as people run in the street.
Eight people are injured – including a woman with a pram.
Police shot the Muslim terrorist in the leg before arresting him, according to reports.
They are now looking for more terrorists.
The attack occurred in the city of Turku, in the southwest of the country.
‘The government is following the situation in Turku closely and a police operation is under way,’ tweeted Prime Minister Juha Sippila ahead of a cabinet meeting.
‘Police are looking for other possible perpetrators of the crime in Turku,’ security forces wrote on Twitter.
‘They ask the population to leave and avoid central Turku.’
Police have raised security at Helsinki airport and at train stations.
