Melbourne attack: Stabbing spree in city center was terrorism, police say
- The incident unfolded on a busy downtown street on Friday evening. As the attacker's vehicle burst into flames, the man emerged and "engaged" with members of the public.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the knife attack through its media wing Amaq, the SITE Intelligence Group reported.
Police said they knew the identify of the suspect but declined to name him due to "operational reasons." He was known to authorities because some of his family members were "persons of interest."
The driver of a pickup truck loaded with gas canisters stabbed three people in a Melbourne street on Friday, killing one of them in what Australian police are treating as an act of terrorism.
