David Cameron will meet security chiefs Thursday following the murder in London of a man who may be a soldier, an attack the prime minister said had 'strong indications' of being a terrorist incident.
Bloomberg reports that the victim was attacked just after 2 p.m. Wednesday outside a military barracks in Woolwich, southeast London, the capital’s Metropolitan Police said. When officers arrived at the scene, they shot and wounded two armed men.
Video footage broadcast by ITV News showed a black man, his hands covered in blood and holding a cleaver and a knife, speaking after the attack. 'We must fight them as they fight us', he said in a London accent. 'An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. Your people will never be safe. Remove your government, they don’t care about you', The man apologized that women had to witness the incident. 'In our lands, our women see the same', he said.
