Finland's knife attack suspect to appear in court

An 18-year-old Moroccan asylum-seeker will appear in court on Tuesday after he killed two women in Turku.

Police, who named the suspect as Abderrahman Mechkah on Monday, said he may appear via video link from the hospital where his injury is being treated. 

Authorities are yet to establish the role of four other Moroccan men, detained over possible links to the Turku attack.

No group has claimed responsibility for Friday’s attack, though police are investigating possible links to Thursday’s van attack in Barcelona.
