Murder In South London Treated As Terrorist Attack

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

A man was hacked to death in daylight near a military barracks in Woolwich. A local parliamentarian says the dead man was a British soldier. Media reports say two young men hit the victim in a car, then used a machete and butcher's knives to kill him in the street. One witness reportedly said the assailants stood around, waving knives and a gun, and asked people to film them. The government has called an urgent meeting of its crisis response committee.
