Terrorism, attempted murder charges pending in Edmonton truck attack

Terrorism, attempted murder charges pending in Edmonton truck attack”

An attack on a police officer outside a football game and a high-speed chase that injured four people in the western city of Edmonton are being investigated as acts of terrorism, Canadian police said on Sunday.

According to Edmonton Police Chief Rod Knecht, a flag of the terrorist group Daesh (ISIS) was found in the vehicle.

He is now facing five counts of attempted murder, four counts of risky driving causing bodily harm, unsafe operation of a motor vehicle and one weapons-related charge. "It's a testament to his experience and training that he survived".

"If we hadn't pursued this vehicle in light of the use of the auto earlier to run over a police officer and the history of large vehicle attacks in Germany, Spain, and other European countries, the outcome would've been much worse", EPS Insp.

"To the best of our knowledge, this was a lone wolf attack", Edmonton Mayor Don Iveson said.

The driver was later stopped at a checkpoint driving a U-Haul truck before taking off. "We can succumb to that or we can rise above it".

Conservative Pierre Paul-Hus questioned Mr. Goodale in the House of Commons on Monday, saying "Canadians need to know which information the RCMP had on this individual to undertake the investigation".

"Law enforcement authorities from the United States are in touch with their Canadian counterparts to offer assistance with the ongoing investigation", the statement read.

A policeman in Canada's Edmonton city was rammed by a motorist who then attacked him with a knife on Saturday night while four pedestrians were hit by a van later in a pair of suspected terror attacks, reports said. He said 30 police cars were chasing the vehicle when it crashed.

The truck deliberately attempted to haul pedestrians along Jasper Avenue, one of the busiest streets in the downtown area on Saturday night. He was chased and arrested by police.

"There were like 10 cop cars following him".

Police arrested the suspect after the vehicle flipped over during the pursuit.

Still, the attack could leave Prime Minister Justin Trudeau open to more criticism from conservatives for the welcoming message he extended to refugees earlier this year, after U.S. President Donald Trump issued a travel ban targeting several Muslim-majority countries. It was insane. It just came around the corner, ripping.

The van "peeled" into an alley where people were smoking, he said. "It's not who we are", Notley said Sunday.
