Finnish police request two knife attack suspects be detained

Finnish police have requested that two of five Moroccans arrested over last week’s deadly knife attack in Turku be detained for murder with terrorist intent, a court said on Tuesday.

Previously the police had accused only the main suspect, Abderrahman Mechkah, of killing two people and wounding eight in the knife rampage on Friday, while the role of the four other men was unclear.
