Finnish police patrol the streets after stabbings in Turku
Although one attacker was in custody, BBC reported that the public was warning that other suspects might still be at large. Authorities were looking for more potential suspects in the attack.
A tweet from South-West Finland police at 16.40 read, "Several people stabbed in central Turku". We saw a man on the square and a knife glittered.
The attack prompted police to boost patrols across the country, and security has been tightened at the Helsinki-Vantaa airport and train stations.
Turku mayor Aleksi Randall said in a statement it was "difficult to understand that such violence would happen on this scale in Turku".
It is not yet known if the attack is terror related or what was the motivation behind the brutal attack. The emergency services said a woman injured in the Cambrils attack has died, bringing the total toll in both attacks to 14. "She was bleeding all over her body", Wali Hashi, who witnessed the attack, told AFP.
The government has grown more concerned about attacks, partly after an Uzbek man killed four people in neighbouring Sweden in April by driving a hijacked truck into crowd in central Stockholm.

Three people are now undergoing surgery, YLE reported, citing hospital sources.
The Finland attack took place in the heart of the port city in southwestern Finland, just after 3pm (10pm AEST) in a bustling neighbourhood.
Turku is in Finland's southwest and lies around 140 kilometers (around 85 miles) west of the capital, Helsinki.
In video footage of the incident, the attacker is seen shouting "Allahu Akbar" as he runs across a street. Police said he is likely to have acted alone though it was not possible to completely rule out that other people were involved. Translated from Finnish, he wrote: "The Government will closely monitor the situation and the ongoing police operation in Turku".
The knife attack appears to have focused on Turku's downtown as people were urged to avoid the city center of the Finnish city.
