Let's be honest: at this point, we're all pretty accustomed to President Donald Trump's early morning tweets.

Several people were stabbed in an knife attack in the Finnish city of Turku on Friday but it was not immediately clear if this was a militant action or had some other motive. Police said they arrested one person after a shootout and were hunting for other possible attackers. They warned people to stay away from the city as they reinforced security nationwide. The Turun Sanomat newspaper reported that at least one person was killed in the attack.

Interior Minister Paula Risikko told Helsingin Sanomat she did not yet know whether the attack was related to terrorism. Finland is traditionally peaceful but the Finnish Security Intelligence Service raised the terrorism threat level in June, saying it had become aware of more serious terrorism-related plans in Finland. Witness Laura Laine said she was alerted by hearing a young woman screaming loudly at the corner of the market square. “We saw a man at the square, he had knife in his hand, and he was swinging it in the air. We understood he had stabbed someone,” she told Finnish broadcaster YLE. Turku lies on Finland’s southwest coast about 160 km (100 miles) west of the capital Helsinki.
