Moroccan teenager admits carrying out knife attack, where he killed two & injured eight in Finland

A teenage Moroccan asylum seeker admitted on Tuesday of  killing two people and wounding eight in a knife attack in the Finnish city of Turku, his lawyer said.


In a closed-door court hearing, 18-year-old Abderrahman Mechkah confessed to carrying out Friday's attack but denied he had a terrorist motive, lawyer Kaarle Gummerus said.

"(My client) admits manslaughter and injuries. But based on what the investigator has presented thus far, the crime was not necessarily with terrorist intent," Gummerus told Reuters.
