The suspect in a stabbing spree in Canada which left 10 people dead and 19 injured has died after being captured by police.

Myles Sanderson, 32, experienced “medical distress” after the arrest on a motorway in the province of Saskatchewan following a high-speed chase and died later, police say. They gave no details. An unnamed official earlier said that Sanderson died of self-inflicted injuries. Ten victims remain in hospital. Three are in a critical condition.

It is not clear what prompted Sunday’s mass killings which encompassed 13 separate crime scenes. Both suspects – Myles Sanderson and his brother Damien, 31 – are dead.
