The man suspected of several stabbings in Finland is an 18-year-old Moroccan and the attack was terror related, police believe.
An attacker killed two people and wounded eight in the city of Turku on Friday before police shot him in the leg and arrested him.
Finnish police have revealed that both dead people were Finnish. Among the injured were two Swedes and one Italian.
“The act had been investigated as murder, but during the night we received additional information which indicates that the criminal offenses are now terrorist killings,” police said in a statement.
The suspect’s “identity is known to the police. He is an 18-year-old Moroccan citizen,” it said.
