Terrorist attack in Finland (video)

A terrorist attack took place in Turku, Finland, this afternoon. An attacker armed with a knife assaulted the public, and was then shot by the police. He killed two people and injured eight.

The attacker can be heard shouting “Allahu Akbar” (“God is great”) in a video that was posted on the Internet. Turku is the sixth largest city in Finland, with a population of 187,000. It’s located on the south-west coast of the Scandinavian country.

Finland has not been targeted by Muslim extremists before. The last time the country was hit by a similar attack was 10 years ago, when a student in the Finnish town Tuusula carried out a school shooting, said to be modeled on the Columbine and Virginia Tech school shootings in the US. He killed seven students, a teacher, and himself, with a handgun.
