Semi-naked Knifeman Stabs Multiple People Before Police Car Rams Him

A semi-naked knifeman has stabbed a police officer in the streets of Oslo before being shot dead by cops - a year after he committed the same crime.

Police initially suggested that passers-by had been wounded, but later said that only one police officer was slightly hurt.

Footage showed a police patrol car driving into a building in the Bislett neighbourhood of northern Oslo to stop the man. 

The semi-naked man, thought to be in his 30s, then attacked the vehicles and managed to open the car door before being shot, police spokesman Torgeir Brenden said.
