Police Treating London Stabbing As Terrorism

Counter-terrorism police in Britain on Sunday investigated a stabbing at a London Underground station in which a man brandishing a knife injured two people and reportedly said “This is for Syria.” Police arrested a 29-year-old man and said they are treating the attack at east London’s Leytonstone subway station as a “terrorist incident.”

Police were apparently searching the suspects home for more evidence, to see whether there was any organized communication or planning. In any case, the suspect was officially charged Sunday night.
