Somali suspect had ISIS flag in auto”

Canadian police said early on Sunday that an attack on an officer outside a football game with a vehicle and knife and a high-speed chase of a U-Haul that left four people injured in the western city of Edmonton, Alberta, are being investigated as acts of terrorism.

Canadian police said they were investigating violent attacks in Edmonton on Saturday night as "acts of terrorism" after a man hit a police officer with a auto and stabbed him and then later struck four pedestrians while driving a second vehicle.

No terrorism charges were announced, but "we're still very much in the infancy stage" of the investigation, Royal Canadian Mounted Police Superintendent Stacey Talbot told a press conference.

A Somali refugee who attacked a policeman with a knife after striking him with his vehicle and then injured four others in a driving rampage in Edmonton, Alberta was charged with five counts of attempted murder Monday.

The chaos began outside a Canadian Football League game on Saturday night when police say a white Chevrolot Malibu rammed a traffic-control barricade and sent an officer flying five metres into the air. The force of the impact flung a police officer into the air after which the driver got out of the auto and attacked the officer with a knife.

Police set up checkpoints and began stopping cars, leading to a second encounter with the suspect, now driving a U-Haul cube van, east of the stadium just after midnight. Knecht said the truck deliberately hit four pedestrians.

The officer, who suffered serious stabbing wounds to his head, face, and arm, is expected to make a full recovery.

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

Late on Saturday, a auto crashed into a police barricade near Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, after which the driver approached a policeman and stabbed him several times. This raised doubts in the mind of the police and the driver sensed trouble. "We know that Canada's strength comes from our diversity, and we will not be cowed by those who seek to divide us or promote fear", he said.

"It is believed at this time that these two incidents are related, " Knecht said. Neither the victims nor the suspect has been publicly identified. They tried to arrest him, but he resisted so they hit him with a Taser.

Two of the four pedestrians remain in hospital, one with a fractured skull.
