Breaking, will update in a bit

One dead, several hurt in knife attack - BBC News
Police and ambulance crews were called at 22:33 BST on Wednesday to reports of a man in possession of a knife and injuring people.
<edit 03:38 Irish behavioural characteristics caused counter terrorism police to take over the investigation, this story corroborates roughly with why I labelled it a terror attack in the title London terror knife attack: One person has been stabbed to death in Russell Square attack | UK | News | Daily Express >

Knife attacks prey on fears as they are more visceral /personal than guns or bombs. They are also easier to plan and supply for , and harder to thwart.

All that said....a lot more people died of cancer in London this week...as did a few in RTAs....sense of proportion is needed

If this is politically motivated ...recall ...the aim is to get us to abandon or draw back on key ways of our lives...

There was a man set on fire walking through a park in Essex over the weekend.

Man, 31, set alight in Waltham Abbey Gardens attack

A man has suffered serious burns after being covered in an unknown substance and set alight, police have said.

A 31-year-old man was walking through Waltham Abbey Gardens in Essex at 08:00 BST on Saturday when he was approached by a group of men.

They threw over him an "unidentified substance" according to police and then set him ablaze.

Don't think they caught the culprits because I haven't heard any more news. The victim described his attackers as being of ‘Turkish appearance’. I've read of this style of attack happening in London before and they were unsuccessful in killing their victim also.

Seems they have better luck with knives though the Leytonstone tube stabbing attacker who had his trial this week failed to kill his victim. Somali-born Muhiddin Mire got life and will serve a minimum of eight-and-a-half years. How could you ever let him out?

might be gang related

Two men, allegedly of Middle Eastern descent, were seen acting suspiciously outside the hotel, according to witnesses.

A 35-year-old witness, who wished to remain anonymous, told Express.co.uk: “I saw two men with Middle Eastern descent acting suspiciously outside the Imperial Hotel, on Southampton Row.

“One man made off on a motorbike down the wrong side of the road with the other man heading in a different direction.”

"A woman with whom I spoke said that police told her that a gang of some sort was involved, and that they fled south or southwest, but that is just speculation."

“Apparently it was a gang stabbed a woman and she’s dead.

Russell Square Tube is where one of the 7/7 bombs exploded.

The people involved in the event had an appearance that would be consistent with people of typical middle eastern origin. The number of hostiles is not fully clear , nor the exact linkage, if any , to the motorbike people

An eye-witness just described the attacker as Black late 20's. Reported that the knife attacker was "screaming his guts out" but the BBC gives no clue as to what he was screaming about.

There are thousands of attacks every day in Europe. Why all of a sudden do we need a thread for each one?

Because it could be part of the campaign of killings against random people being carried out by an Islamic terror cult.

Saw a lad clatter into someone in a match at the weekend. Studs up, straight over the ball. Probably a Muslim.

I feel sorry for anyone with genuine mental health issues having to listen to this after every attack. It's actually getting farcical now the attempts in the media to cover up what we are facing into in mainland Europe.

Deflect all you like and bury your head in the sand, but Europe will be dramatically changed over the next few decades because of Islamic migration.

In the recent heat wave a waterfight broke out in Hyde Park, quickly it turned into a stabbing. British society is over.

Armed police out on the streets of London just in case anyone else develops "mental health issues"
