Mass Stabbing Incident, Parnell Square, Dublin, Ireland

Update (1036 EST): RTE has reported that Gardia is not suspecting terror as a motive at this time.

Update (1000 EST): The casualty number has been confirmed at five, including three children, of which one girl has serious injuries.

Update (0956 EST): The National Party Dublin chapter Facebook page has claimed that a migrant stabbed three children. That casualty number has not been confirmed, nor has the NP’s claims. It is worth noting the NP is a minor right-wing political party with staunch anti-immigration views.

”Early indications suggest a man tried to attack a number of young people, including children, and that passers-by intervened. However, at least one child, a passer-by and a man restrained at the scene have been hospitalised with injuries, including stab injuries.”
