Sharjah24 – Reuters: A man stabbed three people in the Australian city of Melbourne on Friday, killing one, before being shot and wounded by police, who said the attack was not believed to be terror-related.
Video posted to Twitter and broadcast on television showed a man repeatedly swinging an object at two police officers in the downtown area of the city. One of the officers raises his weapon, a shot is heard and the man falls to the ground clutching his chest.
 
Police said they had initially responded to a car on fire. The bomb response unit has been called in and the streets closed to the public.
