Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen was visiting a National Coalition election stand in Turku Monday afternoon when a man approached him concealing a knife.
The man exchanged a few words with Katainen before suddenly pulling out the weapon, which he then dropped in front of the premier.
The Prime Minister’s security detail quickly nabbed the man.
