1 Finland stabbings: A man stabbed eight people Friday in the western city of Turku, killing two of them, before police shot him in the thigh and detained him, officials said. A suspect — who police said was “a youngish man with a foreign background” — was being treated in the city’s main hospital but was in police custody.

Finland’s top police chief said it was too early to link the attack to international terrorism.
