Several people have been stabbed in the Finnish city of Turku. Police said on Twitter a man suspected of being the attacker was shot in the leg and arrested.
They said were looking for more potential suspects involved in the attack which took place in the early afternoon in the south-western coastal city. Finnish broadcaster YLE reported that several people were lying on the ground in the centre of the city. A local tabloid, Ilta-Sanomat, reported that one man and five women were injured, claiming that a woman with a pushchair had been attacked by a man with a large knife.
Multiple ambulances, fire engines, and police cars are attending the centre of the city, which is 90 miles west of Helsinki. Finnish police recommend people avoid the area. They said that security at Helsinki Airport and at train stations was being reinforced.
