Finnish stabbing attack - 2 dead 8 injured

Police finally confirmed this morning that the suspect was ... a Moroccan asylum seeker.

Quote:
Horrified bystanders recounted the attack, saying they saw a pool of blood in the Market Square.

"A man walked towards the ice cream stand where I work, and he hit a woman three times. He started running, went past my kiosk, and he had a knife in his hand," Terttu Lehtinen told Reuters.

She said that some other men ran behind, apparently chasing him.

"We were sitting by the market square, just enjoying the afternoon. Suddenly people started screaming and yelling, they were hysterical," said another witness, who gave her name only as Reetta.

"We started running towards our car and, as we got there, my boyfriend said a woman had been stabbed several times in the neck," she told Reuters.

One person tweeted: "At least 5 victims, most likely some fatalities one was a woman with a baby."

Others said a young man and woman were stabbed in the back during the rampage.

Poland and the Visegard states looking smarter by the day.

The heroic British man who intervened to save women and children is called.... Hassan?

Is that an English or a Gaelic name? I am confused.

1. It's Visegrád not Visgard.
2. Poland is one of the 4 states, so it wouldn't be 'Poland and the Visegard states'.
3. Finland isn't a Visegrád state.

1. I wrote Visegrad - my keyboard doesn't have accents
2. Uh that's what I wrote
3. This is kind of the point... they're not suffering - despite Poland taking in hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian refugees.

Don't jump to conclusions - we don't know for sure that this one was an Islamic terrorist attack. Could be that the guy was just feeling down, decided to let off some steam, you know..

If you want to be pedantic, you should try harder with your own postings instead of correcting faults that nobody made.

Given that they are investigating it as an act of terrorism, and that they arrested 4 more people who are suspected to be involved and are on the look out for a 6th involved guy, it's perfectly fine to talk about it as a terroristic act.

Pretty sure that pilatus as an Israeli knows far more than any of us (myself included) about how to protect one's country and people from such stupidity as is the darling of the EU elite.

Re: Finnish stabbing attack - 2 dead 8 injured

who, me, an Israeli?

bwaahhaaaaaaa

can't stand (the majority of them) myself.

I knew an Israeli years back, a pacifist, who refused to join the Israeli military, so he left the country.

I use that story as a litmus test when meeting and brain-picking other Israelis. Usually in response they say that he's a traitor/coward/deserves to die. And that's why I can't stand the majority of them.
