Finland stabbings ‘a likely terror act

The knife attack in western Finland that left two people dead and seven others wounded is “a likely terror act,” Finland’s intelligence agency said Saturday, while police said Europol was investigating if it had any ties to deadly vehicle attacks in Spain.

The Ilta-Sanomat tabloid said one of the dead was a local Jehovah’s Witness who was handing out leaflets at a central Turku square.
