BREAKING: Muslim Terror Stabbing in Finland - At Least 1 Dead, 6 Injured Including a Woman and Her Baby

The video after the story shows people running during or after the attack, with "Allahu Akbar!" being screamed by someone. [Edit: the phrase audible in the video might have been "Watch out!" In Finnish. But as I understand it, the original claim that the attacker shouted "Allahu Akbar!" was based on the testimony of one or more eyewitnesses. See, for example, the recent story at the New York Times.] From the Daily Mail:
BREAKING: One person killed and multiple victims are injured after man ‘screaming Allahu Akbar’ goes on knife rampage in Finland before being shot and arrested
  • Several people reported to have been stabbed in Turku, Finland after rampage
  • A witness reported seeing a body lying lifeless on the floor in the Market Square 
  • Police have warned people to stay away from the area while they respond 
  • Local media reporting that a woman with a pram was one of those stabbed
  • One person is feared dead after a man armed with a knife stabbed several people in Finland before being shot by armed police. 
Eyewitness reported hearing one or more gunshots and seeing at least one person lying dead on the ground. 
In a video purporting to show the aftermath of the attack, a scream of 'Allahu Akbar' - Arabic for 'God is the greatest' - can be heard as people run in the street. 
The Tabloid Ilta-Sanomat said six people are injured, one man and five women, and that a woman with a pram was attacked by a man with a large knife. 
Police shot a man in the leg before arresting him, according to reports. 
The attack is said to have occurred in the city of Turku, in the southwest of the country. 
The Turun Sanomat newspaper said that at least one person was killed in the attack. 
At least two people have been reported to be hurt in the Market Square.

Moments later a suspect was shot in the leg and arrested. 
Officials have warned people to stay away from the area. 
Police have said they are upping security at Helsinki airport and train station in response to the incident.
