Breaking from London (CNN):
One woman was killed and five other people were injured in a knife attack in central London’s Russell Square, London Metropolitan Police said. A suspect has been detained, authorities said.Police did not give a motive but said “terrorism is one possibility being explored at this stage.”Based on early evidence, investigators believe the incident was a terror attack, according to officials briefed on the investigation.
“The fact that they’re evening mentioning terrorism leads me to believe that some of the witnesses and some of the victims may have said that this guy may have made some statements while he was carrying out the attack,” former FBI agent Bobby Chacon said.“The normal posture is to calm the public and say we don’t have any information that it’s terrorism yet.”
I have also seen reports that mental health may have been a “major factor” so I am not going to call this one yet. I will update this post in the morning as details become clearer.
