One killed, two injured in Melbourne 'terror' attack

Police said a Somali immigrant killed one person and wounded two others in a rush-hour stabbing spree in the heart of Australia's second city Friday, labelling it a terrorist attack.

One of the stabbed people was dead at the scene and two others were taken to a hospital.

"The investigation is ongoing... there are no known links to terrorism at this stage".

'I heard a massive explosion, the auto is completely alight, ' she said.

Asked about what the attacker had been planning, Ashton referred to the gas cylinders in the vehicle and said: "You could make certain assumptions from that".

A third person has also been taken to hospital, although the nature of their injuries is not yet known.

Police are treating the incident as a terror attack.

Only after he was shot did police realize that three members of the public, all men, had been stabbed.

"A man was arrested at the scene and has been taken to hospital under police guard in a critical condition". He was then shot by police.

MI is in the playoff - for now
The loss of that game, should it have been a WVU win, might have been a difference in one or two slots in this week's rankings. Despite one of the most impressive performances of the weekend, WVU moved up just four spots in Tuesday evening's rankings.

A man, believed to be the driver, stabbed three people and was then shot by police.

Images from the scene show a large white sheet covering a section of the road near what appears to be blood.

Police were investigating the incident in Melbourne as suspected terrorism, and they were re-evaluating security plans for upcoming public events. The man follows with the trolley and pushes it towards the attacker again, as a police officer opens fire.

Clayton said police had arrived at Bourke Street, a busy shopping thoroughfare, in response to a auto fire.

Australian police say the pickup truck contained several barbeque gas cylinders.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said the attack was "an evil, terrifying thing that's happened in our city".

More than 100 police have swarmed on the area.

"It's the center of Melbourne, where a lot of the transportation changes's probably the busiest part of Melbourne and late on a Friday", said Meegan May who witnessed part incident from a nearby tram.
