CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - Five people were stabbed to death on Tuesday in the Western Canadian city of Calgary, Alberta, during a house party held to celebrate the end of the university term, local media reported.

The reports said three people were found dead at the scene while two others died in hospital. Another suffered minor injuries.

The victims were all in their late teens and early twenties, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported, citing local police.
