Five injured in suspected terrorism in Edmonton

Five injured in suspected terrorism in Edmonton

Resident Grant Brunelle said police showed him a photo of Mr. Sharif, but he did not recognize him.

Police did not name the suspect, who they said was arrested with an Islamic state flag in one of his vehicles.

"We believe that this individual acted alone", Chief Knecht added at a press conference held early on Sunday.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau responded to the attacks with an official statement.

"I didn't do anything, and I drove", she said.

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

At least five people were injured on Saturday night in Edmonton, Alberta in a pair of vehicle attacks that Canadian authorities are investigating as possible acts of terrorism.

"We can not - and will not - let violent extremism take root in our communities", he said.

Late on Saturday, a vehicle crashed into a police barricade near Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, after which the driver approached a policeman and stabbed him several times.

The Edmonton Police Service (EPS) says a 30-year-old Edmonton man has been arrested and is now in custody.

The driver got out, pulled out a large knife and began stabbing the officer. That part of the attack was captured on video.




A few hours later, a U-Haul van was stopped at an impaired driving check stop north of downtown on Wayne Gretzky Drive.

Police knew the name of the Malibu's registered owner, as well as the suspect's physical description, and set up roadblocks.

With police in high-speed pursuit, the suspect took off toward the downtown, mowing down four pedestrians along the way.

Witnesses described a scene of stunned panic when the truck plowed through pedestrians.

On Sunday evening, hundreds of people attended an anti-violence vigil in Edmonton organised by the Alberta Muslim Public Affairs Council.

The truck eventually flipped over and the driver was arrested.

"The complexities of a terrorism investigation are vast".

In the same week, a man ran down two soldiers in Quebec, killing one. The assailant was shot to death after he tried to attack a police officer with a knife.

Saskatchewan RCMP are also assuring the public their members are constantly assessing potential threats and working closely with other policing partners.

The RCMP antiterrorism squad, meanwhile, took over the investigation after an Islamic State group flag was discovered in the accused's auto.

Elgie said the van hit a man who was a customer. Canada has been supporting Kurdish forces that are fighting ISIS in northern Iraq.
