Finland’s Prime Minister Juha Sipilä wrote on Twitter: "As a result of the inhuman and reprehensible events in Oulu and Helsinki, the Government will meet next week in negotiations both on Tuesday and Friday."
"It's unbearable that people who've asked for and even received asylum from us have brought such evil and caused unsafety here", the country’s President Sauli Niinistö said in a statement.
