Terrorism suspected in Canadian attack that leaves 5 injured

Canada has not experienced as much violence from extremist attacks as the United States and Western European nations, but there have been several deadly incidents in recent years.

Knecht said the driver then got out and attacked the officer with a knife.

Knecht said the apparent ISIS flag would be "part of the investigation", adding that there had been no prior warning of a specific attack. A flag of the armed group islamic State have been discovered in another vehicle linked to the suspect. Their conditions were not immediately known, the police chief said.

A vehicle and knife attack on a police officer outside a football game and a high-speed chase of a moving van that left four people injured appear to be the work of a single suspected terrorist, Canadian authorities said Sunday.

The officer involved in the stabbing was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police then released the suspect's truck through the windscreen which had been smashed in.

The officer was hit and went flying 15 feet through the air, the Edmonton Police Service (EPS) said in a statement.

The 30-year-old man was detained after a high-speed chase through streets filled with Saturday night revelers and local football fans.

"There were people flying and everything", one witness said. "It just came around the corner, ripping".

Police say the U-Haul intentionally swerved at pedestrians in crosswalks. "If you've got 20 cops chasing one guy and there's pedestrians that are walking down this road?"
