Five injured in Canada 'terror' incidents

"The vehicle struck the officer, sending him flying into the air fifteen feet, before colliding with the officer's cruiser, again at a high rate of speed", Knecht said.

A 30-year-old man was arrested after the crash; while police are still investigating, they now believe the suspect acted alone in both incidents.

Edmonton Police Service Chief Rod Knecht said the officer and his vehicle were rammed by a white Chevrolet Malibu at about 8.15 local time (4.15 GMT) outside Alberta's Commonwealth Stadium.

The driver of the vehicle - in which an Islamic State flag was later discovered - then approached an Edmonton Police Service special duty member and stabbed him multiple times, before fleeing the scene on foot.

Bayern Munich have sacked manager Carlo Ancelotti this afternoon after just under 15 months in charge, according to Sky Sports sources .

Then, on Sunday, a man shouting "Allahu Akbar" was shot and killed by French military after stabbing civilians at Marseille's train station. Details on the condition of the other victims were not immediately available.

Edmonton police released grainy footage of a auto ramming a crowd control barricade with a uniformed officer standing beside it.

Police say the van attempted to "deliberately hit" the pedestrians at a crossing, with the van eventually flipping onto its side on a busy street in downtown Edmonton.

Knecht said Edmonton police are working with the RCMP's Integrated National Security Enforcement Team, and other Canadian security agencies. The U-Haul truck then sped off towards downtown Edmonton with police chasing it.

He said that he believes Mr Kim's strategy is to drive a wedge between the United States and its allies. According to him, Kim would make countries fearful so that they don't stand up to his threats.

The driver reportedly got out of his auto and went on the attack- stabbing an officer several times. Witnesses who saw the chase said it was chaotic.

At that point, the suspect "fled on foot", and a few hours later, he barreled down a nearby street in a U-Haul truck.

Austin Elgie, manager of The Pint bar just west of the downtown core, said the truck hit a person in the alley outside his establishment.

After that, Elgie said he still had a bar to run that was full of people.

Mr Knecht said they did not call off the chase of the van due to the seriousness of the crime. "We are urging all Edmontonians to be vigilant and aware of their surroundings".
