    Hundreds of police are on-scene on Bourke Street in Melbourne’s CBD after reports of a ‘serious incident’.

    “Police are aware of an incident in the vicinity of Bourke Street,” Victoria Police have said in a statement.

    Authorities are urging the public to avoid the area.

    Also seen footage of police shooting the aggressor following the explosion on Twitter.

    Edit: Man has been arrested at the scene, taken to hospital under police guard. No one else suspected at this stage.

    Small number being treated for stab wounds.

    THE Islamic State group says one of its fighters carried out a knife attack in Melbourne in which one man died and two were wounded.

    “The one who executed the ramming and stabbing operation in Melbourne (..) is one of the fighters of the Islamic State and he executed the operation in response to (a call) to target the citizens of the coalition,” Amaq said on Friday.

    The attacker in Melbourne was shot by police after he set fire to a ute laden with gas cylinders in the centre of Melbourne and stabbed three people, killing one. The attacker died later in hospital.

    Police are now treating the stabbing attack in Melbourne's Bourke St as a terrorism incident.

    The knifeman, a 31-year-old Somali-born from Melbourne’s north-western suburbs, died in hospital on Friday night after being shot in the chest by police.

    The Herald Sun, on its Twitter page, said the terrorist’s wife “was missing and is believed to have been radicalised”. They say Victoria Police are searching for her.
