One dead, five injured in central London knife attack

A woman has died and five other people were injured in a knife attack in Russell Square, central London.




Police were called at 22:33 BST on Wednesday to reports of a man injuring people with a knife.

One of the victims, a woman in her 60s, was treated at the scene but was pronounced dead a short time later.

A 19-year-old man was arrested at 22:39 after a Taser was discharged by an officer. The Met said mental health was a "significant factor" in the events.
Two other women and three men received various injuries in the attack, Scotland Yard confirmed later.
The Met's assistant commissioner for specialist operations, Mark Rowley, said the force's homicide command was leading the investigation into the attack, with support from the counter-terrorism unit.

He went on: "Of course at this stage we should keep an open mind regarding motive and consequently terrorism as a motivation remains... one line of inquiry for us to explore."
A police forensics tent has been erected on Southampton Row, outside the park in the centre of the square, which is close to the British Museum.
There is a heavy police presence in the area and the initial cordon around the crime scene has been extended, according to BBC reporter Andy Moore at the scene.

The condition of those injured and the extent of their injuries is not known at present.

Nowhere is safe again. I just hope it's not the handiwork of ISIS and their cohorts. RIP to the dead.

These Islamic terrorists, with the help of Obama, are trying so hard to destroy the peace we have on this earth. But darkness will never prevail over light.

This made me to remember something, years ago when I was younger,I was walking on a street,a very young boy of about 15 had a knife in his hand, and he made an attempt to stab me ,
he looked into my face with his eyes wide open and was pointing at my chest to stab,so I was saying Jesus Jesus,it was so traumatic,suddenly something told me to push him and run,I pushed him with all my strength and ran,I was about 20 then, I feel he was not mentally okay.

Knife attack is the most popular form of street crime in the UK. Those yobs. Just like the U.S hoodlums are synonymous with guns. Sad.

The Americans need to learn from us how to disarm a suspect without necessarily taking lives. Unless of course where it seems the most reasonable option.
