The Canadian police investigates as "acts of terrorism" two events that have occurred in the city of Edmonton (capital of the state of Alberta, in the west of the country) and which have injured at least five people.
The first one was an attack perpetrated last night against a policeman by a person in whose van a flag of the Islamic State was subsequently found.
According to the Edmonton police, the incident occurred at the 20.15 of the night local time (04.15 GMT), when an agent controlling a football match was hit by a car at high speed.
The driver was low after the vehicle and attacked the policeman with a white weapon, before fleeing walking. The assaulted policeman does not present however wounds that endanger his life.
According to the police, a flag of the Islamic State terrorist group was found inside the van.
The Edmonton police also investigates as a terrorist act the outrage of four people by a van that the police stopped in a control, in an incident that occurred shortly before midnight.
"The van got out of the place quickly and was chased by some neighborhoods in the city," said the police.
According to the police, the van "deliberately tried to run over pedestrians" and wounded four, of which it is not known yet what its state is.
The driver, who according to the first police information acted alone, was subsequently detained.
