A man arrested for allegedly stabbing several people at a shopping centre in Manchester, northwest England, is being held on terror charges, police said on Friday.
Assistant Chief Constable Russ Jackson, of Greater Manchester Police, said the man was being questioned "on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of an act of terrorism".
Jackson said the suspect, identified as a man in his 40s armed with "a large knife," injured five people and was believed to be acting alone.
"He began lunging and attacking people with the knife," he told reporters.
"He was initially arrested for serious assault.
"He has now been arrested on suspicion of commission, preparation and instigation of an act of terrorism."
The attack happened at the Arndale shopping centre in the heart of Manchester, near where an hardliner extremist suicide bomber killed 22 after an Ariana Grande concert in 2017.
"This is bound to bring back memories of the awful events of 2017," said Jackson.
"We do not believe there is anyone else" involved in the attack, he added. "We not believe there is a wider threat at this time."
