Canadian police probe car attacks, stabbing as 'acts of terrorism'By Candace Elliott EDMONTON, CANADA (Reuters) – Canadian police arrested a suspect in violent, Saturday night attacks in Edmonton that injured a traffic officer and four others, describing the incidents as “acts of terrorism.” A man struck an officer directing traffic outside a football stadium with his vehicle, stabbed him and then fled. Authorities believe the man acted alone, although they have not ruled out the possibility that others were involved, Edmonton Police Service Chief Rod Knecht said at a Sunday morning news conference. Police found a flag of the Islamic State militant group inside the car that struck the traffic officer, Canadian broadcasters CBC and CTV reported.
