It has been reported that a suspected terrorist has mowed down and knifed a number of pedestrians in an attack in Edmonton, Canada, leaving five injured.

An Islamic State flag was said to be in the back of his vehicle at the time of the attack.

According to a report in the Daily Mail:

Canadian police said early Sunday that an attack on an officer outside a football game 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.

Edmonton Police Chief Rod Knecht said that officers have one person in custody and think he acted alone, but are not ruling out that others may be involved.

The chaos began outside a Canadian Football League game where the Edmonton Eskimos were hosting Winnipeg on Canadian Forces Appreciation Night on Saturday night at the Commonwealth Stadium.

Police say a white Chevrolet Malibu rammed a traffic control barricade and sent an officer flying into the air 15 feet.

Knecht said the driver, believed to be 30 years old, then got out and attacked the officer with a knife before fleeing on foot.

The attack will raise tensions across the world as it is just the latest incident involving ISIS or those who sympathise with the terrorist organisation.

Europe is already on a state of high alert, and our thoughts are with those affected in Canada.

This is a developing story, and more details will be made available when they are published by the authorities.
