Finnish police arrest 4 Moroccan men over links to stabbings

Finnish police said they has arrested four other Moroccan men over their possible links to the man suspected of killing two and wounding eight in Friday’s knife attacks.

Finnish police are investigating Friday’s knife attacks that killed two and wounded eight in the city of Turku as terrorism-related crimes, they said on Saturday.

The suspect arrested on Friday was an 18-year-old Moroccan, police said, adding that the two people killed were Finns and an Italian and two Swedish citizens were among the injured.

The attacks shocked the Nordic country where violent crime is relatively rare and which has been named as the world’s safest place to visit by the World Economic Forum.

Following the attacks on Friday, police shot the suspected attacker in the leg and arrested him.

The police added in a news conference that the attacker, who had arrived in Finland last year, seemed to have chosen women as his targets.

Finnish broadcaster MTV, citing unnamed source, said the man had been declined asylum. The police declined to comment but said he had been “part of the asylum process.”
