One person is feared dead after a man armed with a knife stabbed several people in Finland before being shot by armed police.

Eyewitnesses reported hearing one or more gunshots and seeing at least one person lying dead on the ground.

In a video purporting to show the aftermath of the attack, a scream of ‘Allahu Akbar’ – Arabic for ‘God is the greatest’ – can be heard as people run in the street.

The Tabloid Ilta-Sanomat said six people are injured, one man and five women – including a woman with a pram.
Police shot a man in the leg before arresting him, according to reports.

They are now looking for more suspects.

The attack occurred in the city of Turku, in the southwest of the country.

The Turun Sanomat newspaper said at least one person was killed in the attack.

‘The government is closely following the events in Turku and the ongoing police operation. The government will meet later today,’ Prime Minister Juha Sipila said.

According to local media site Uutiset, police tweeted: ‘Several people stabbed in central Turku. People are requested to avoid the city centre.’

Moments later a suspect was shot in the leg and arrested.

Officials have warned people to stay away from the area.
