HELSINKI (Reuters) - A Finnish court sentenced Abderrahman Bouanane, a failed Moroccan asylum seeker, to life in prison on Friday for stabbing two women to death and wounding eight other people last year in the Nordic country’s first militant Islamist attack.
Bouanane, who was 22 at the time, went on his knife rampage in the market square in the city of Turku last August. Police stopped the attacks by shooting Bouanane in the leg.
“Bounane wanted to connect his crimes to the terrorist acts by the Islamic State... The crimes were committed in similar fashion to other attacks made in Europe in recent years,” the District Court of Varsinais-Suomi said in its ruling.
