A man with a knife has killed two people and wounded at least six in a stabbing rampage in a market square in the Finnish city of Turku.
Police shot the suspected attacker in the leg and arrested him on Friday. They said they had yet to establish the identity of the man who appeared to be of foreign origin, or his motive.

They warned people to stay away from the city and reinforced security nationwide, with increased patrols and more surveillance, in case more people were involved. People were allowed to return to the city centre a few hours later.
