Police probe Canadian vehicle attacks, stabbing as 'acts of terrorism'

Based on evidence at the scene and the actions of the male suspect, EPS, the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) and its Canadian Public Security Agencies are now investigating these incidents as acts of terrorism under Section 83.2 of the Criminal Code of Canada.

In 2014, Canada was stunned by two deadly attacks that police said were the work of homegrown radicals and led to tougher new anti-terrorism measures. "We continue to collect and gather information".

Sharif, 30, is to make his first appearance Tuesday in provincial court on 11 charges, including five counts of attempted murder.

Does Apple Have An iPhone 8 Quality Problem?

An Islamic State flag was found inside the Malibu, Rod Knecht, police chief of Edmonton, said.

The attacks began around 8:15 Saturday night near Commonwealth Stadium, just north of downtown, during a game between the CFL's Edmonton Eskimos and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The force of the impact flung a police officer into the air after which the driver got out of the vehicle and attacked the officer with a knife. The suspect then repeatedly stabbed the officer. He has since been released from hospital and is recovering from stab wounds to the face and head.

Knecht said when the U-haul pulled over for the checkpoint, the driver produced identification linking him to the registered owner of the Malibu.

Just before midnight, police said, the suspect led officers on a high-speed chase while driving a U-Haul truck. The chase continued until police forced the truck to crash on its side. They tried to arrest him, but he resisted so they hit him with a Taser.

Edmonton Mayor Don Iveson said the authorities believed there was no further threat and that it had been a "lone wolf" attack.

"Did we have a clue that this event was going to happen?" "At that time, we had the area flooded. It's not who we are", Notley said Sunday. During the pursuit, the suspect deliberately hit four pedestrians; eventually, the van flipped.

Mr. Goodale has said Mr. Sharif arrived in Canada in 2012 and was granted refugee status, but few other personal details have emerged. He said nothing raised any red flags at the time.

Police said the suspect crashed the vehicle through a barricade and hit the officer at about 8.15pm Saturday local time, sending him flying 5 metres into the air and against a police cruiser.
