Police in Australia say a man intentionally crashed his vehicle into a crowd during rush hour in central Melbourne. At least fourteen people have been injured, several seriously.
One person has died and two others have been injured after being stabbed by a man in the center of the southeastern Australian city of Melbourne. Police said they are treating the attack as terrorism.
Australian police have said a man who embarked on a killing in Melbourne was radicalized by "Islamic State" propaganda. But they said no direct connection with the extremist group had yet been established.
A Melbourne driver has been convicted six-fold for murdering shopping-mall pedestrians he struck with a stolen car in January last year. Authorities say the incident was not terror-related but "drug-induced."
Authorities are investigating why a 48-year-old man drove a van into a crowd in Münster, killing three, including himself, and injuring several others. The man is said to have had a history of mental illness.
