Finland killings: Knifeman 'targeted women in Turku terror attack'



Police in Finland say a knifeman who killed two people in the south-western city of Turku on Friday appeared to choose women as targets.

 
They are treating the attack as a terrorist incident.


The suspect, arrested after being shot by police, is an 18-year-old Moroccan. Four other Moroccans have been held.


The two women stabbed to death were both Finnish. Eight people were also injured, among them a Briton, a Swede and an Italian.
