Terrorism ‘not behind’ deadly Melbourne car attack

Terrorism ‘not behind’ deadly Melbourne car attack

Terrorism has been ruled out as three people were killed and 20 injured when a car was driven at pedestrians in Melbourne.

The car travelling at almost 40mph struck walkers in the busy Bourke St Mall in the centre of the Australian city just before 2pm local time.

Footage broadcast on local media showed a maroon car driving in circles in front of nearby Flinders Street railway station.

A man was arrested and police believe the incident was linked to a stabbing in Melbourne’s south-east early on Friday. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office said that it was not terrorism related and there was no ongoing threat.
