Man shot after stabbings in Finnish city - BBC News

"Several people were stabbed in an attack in the Finnish city of Turku on Friday, police said, warning people to stay away from the city as they reinforced security around the country.

Police said they arrested one person after a shootout and had launched a manhunt for other possible attackers.

The Turun Sanomat newspaper reported that at least one person was killed in the attack and that police were inspecting departing trains and buses.

An eyewitness saw four or five ambulances near the city's main square, the paper said.

"The government is closely following the events in Turku and the ongoing police operation. The government will meet later today," Prime Minister Juha Sipila wrote on his Twitter account. "

It's a legitimate response to Finnish imperialism.

A witness just now on CNN says he didn't hear the attacker shout anything during the attack.

Looks like at least one woman is dead. He says that the police covered her body.

One of the tweets in response says this:

"Emmi Lounela‏ @emmiloun 1 nóim

It sounds to me like they are shouting "varokaa" (watch out in Finnish)."
wait and see I guess, Friday afternoon though, its a hot zone for Islamic terrorism

CNN ? Caliphate News Network.

May as well as a drunk in a pub in Tasmania, for a full account of the event.

At least the drunk would try to be honest.

The guy who was speaking was an eyewitness, a Swedish tourist in Turku who was only a few metres away sitting on the terrace of a restaurant when the first of the stabbings occurred. From the emotion and sense of disbelief in his voice, I'm inclined to believe that he was telling the truth.
