    Edmonton: Five injured in Canada 'terror' incidents

    Edmonton: Five injured in Canada 'terror' incidents





    Several locations in the Canadian city were cordoned off by police during the manhunt

    Canadian police have confirmed they are investigating possible acts of terrorism after multiple incidents in Edmonton, Alberta, on Saturday night.

    They said a police officer controlling traffic at a Canadian Football League game was struck by a car at high speed and then attacked with a knife.

    A man driving a van went on to hit at least four pedestrians and was arrested two hours later after a police chase.

    Police said an Islamic State (IS) group flag was found in one of the vehicles.

    Edmonton Police Service Chief Rod Knecht said the officer and his vehicle were rammed by a white Chevrolet Malibu at about 20:15 local time (04:15 GMT) outside Alberta's Commonwealth Stadium.

    The driver then got out of his vehicle and stabbed the uniformed officer several times, before fleeing on foot. The officer was taken to hospital but his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

    Chief Knecht said information about the vehicle's registered owner was broadcast to patrol officers.

    Shortly before midnight, a man driving a U-Haul rental van was pulled over at a checkpoint after his name on documents was said to be "very similar" to the one police were searching for.

    "The U-Haul truck then immediately fled the scene, and was pursued by police officers toward downtown Edmonton," the police chief said.

    He said the truck "deliberately attempted to hit pedestrians" during the police chase.

    The driver, a 30-year-old male, was arrested after his vehicle overturned in a police chase.

    "Based on evidence at the scenes and the actions of the suspect, at 00:38 it was determined these incidents are being investigated as acts of terrorism."

    Police said the arrested individual had been known to authorities.

    They said they currently believe the suspect acted alone, but are not ruling out the involvement of any others.

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he was both "deeply concerned and outraged".

    "Our thoughts are with those injured, their family and friends, and all those affected by this senseless act of violence," he said.

    "While the investigation continues, early reports indicate that this is another example of the hate that we must remain ever vigilant against."

    Not the first time for Canada

    Canada is not immune to the forces of extremism and has dealt with attacks on its soil before.

    In January, a gunman entered a mosque in Quebec City and fired on worshippers, killing six.

    In 2014, gunman Michael Zehaf-Bibeau killed a young soldier guarding the war memorial before driving to parliament, where he was eventually shot and killed.

    A few days before, two soldiers were rammed by a car in the province Quebec. The suspect in the hit-and-run was later killed by police. But one soldier was killed and another injured in what was described as an apparent act of home-grown terrorism.

    This time, the injured were a police officer controlling traffic during a Canadian football game and and sports fans and bar-goers out on a busy on a Saturday night on a main Edmonton street, Jasper Avenue.

    Poor Canada. You're being invaded by elements you do not know, can not see, and do not understand, just like we did, just like Europe has done. Setting aside simple common sense for globalist welcoming goals is not right, it's not intelligent, it's not beneficial, it's just incredibly stupid.
