“We condemn these horrific acts of violence, and whether they were carried out by troubled individuals or by terrorists, the victims know no difference,” he said in a statement.

An assailant stabbed a policeman and was shot by an officer in what police describe as a “terrorist incident”, which also involved a car crashing into pedestrians.
