Three people, including a police officer, have been stabbed in Manchester in what increasingly looks like an Islamist terrorist attack. Two members of the public, a man and a woman, were taken to hospital with knife injuries. A British Transport Police officer also received treatment after being stabbed in the shoulder.
Other reports suggested that the attacker made reference to Western military interventions in Syria:
