London - Suspected Terrorist Incident

category international | crime and justice | news report author Wednesday May 22, 2013 19:19author by maothail lad Report this post to the editors


Source: Metropolitan Police, BBC, ITN, Sky, etc

An incident in South East London this afternoon where a man was run over and then beheaded by the two men in the vehicle. The two guys then went for the armed response unit and were shot.

I have been following this for a couple of hours as I am from South East London but now, they are saying it may be a terrorist incident. The dead man apparently was wearing a help the heroes T-shirt and is a soldier at the nearby army barracks.

Witnesses say that the attackers asked people on the street to take their pictures as they waited for police to arrive. Then they tried to attack the police.

It seems to be a politically and religiously motivated attack with one of the attackers witnessed as follows..

The man with the machete tells passersby in a broad London accent: "We apologise that women had to see this today but in our lands our women have to see the same. You people will never be safe. Remove your government. They don't care about you."

Here is the chilling video of the terrorist calmly talking to passers-by after the incident

Warning - might be too graphic for some viewers
