Tarku Attack: Two Dead, Several Wounded in Finland Stabbing; Man Reportedly Shouted 'Allahu Akbar'
Police in Finland shot a man who reportedly screamed "Allahu Akbar" before stabbing at least six people on Friday.
The man, who was not immediately identified, was shot in the leg, the BBC reported. The mass stabbing incident occurred in the Puutori-Market Square area. One of those stabbed was pushing a stroller, The Sun reported.
Sound from a video that appeared to be taken by someone near the scene and was widely shared on social media featured a person repeatedly screaming "Allahu Akbar," a phrase often shouted by Islamic terrorists. Authorities had not officially labeled the incident in Finland as terrorism.
Images on social media showed at least one body -- that had been covered -- laying on the ground.
