World | 9 Nov 2018 7:20 pm

Australian police say a pickup truck that caught fire in the country’s second-largest city contained several barbecue gas cylinders and was part of an apparent terrorist attack.

Police said the driver got out of the vehicle, which then caught fire, and attacked three bystanders with a knife before being fatally shot by police.

The attack during the afternoon rush hour brought central Melbourne to a standstill.

Victoria state Premier Daniel Andrews says the attack was "an evil and terrifying thing that has happened in our city and state today.”-AP
