Finland attack – Knifeman stabs six

The centre of a Finnish city is on lockdown after six people, including a woman pushing a baby in a pram, were stabbed with a large knife.

Armed police scrambled to Turku as a knife-wielding group reportedly rampaged through the city. It is currently unclear if it was just one person with a knife or multiple attackers as there are mixed reports.

Bystanders said a number of people were stabbed in Market Square before one person was arrested by Finnish police.

It is not clear if this is the same person who is said to have been shot in the leg by police as bystanders say they heard gunshots. One man and five women - one pushing a baby in a pram - were injured in the attack.

One person tweeted: "At least 5 victims, most likely some fatalities one was a woman with a baby." Others said a young man and woman were stabbed in the back during the rampage, The Sun reports.
