IGNORE REPORTS OUT OF THE UK carried by the sharia-compliant media blaming it on “mental health issues” of a Norwegian of Somali origin (never mentioning his Muslim origin, of course, that would be ‘racist’)
Here’s the headline from the UK Telegraph today: “American woman stabbed to death in London rampage by ‘mentally ill’ Norwegian-Somali (MUSLIM) knifeman as police find no link to terrorism. Other wounded victims are British, American, Israeli and Australian.
An American woman in her 60s has been killed after being repeatedly stabbed in the back by a knifeman in a central London rampage as police rowed back on terrorism as a potential motive and said the attack was probably triggered by mental health issues.
The US citizen was knifed by the “large man” – who was reportedly wearing black shorts and a white t-shirt – as he silently and indiscriminately attacked pedestrians in Russell Square on Wednesday night.
She was helped by a family of Spanish tourists as she lay slumped against railings after being targeted by the knifeman, who witnesses said did not say a word as he also stabbed a man in his 40s in the chest and a woman in her 20s in the arm.
A 19-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, having received treatment in hospital under armed guard after a Taser was discharged as he was detained by police shortly after 10.30pm.
The suspect is a Norwegian national of Somalian origin, but no evidence has been found of radicalisation, Scotland Yard’s head of counter-terrorism Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said.
Police had earlier said they were keeping an open mind over the motive behind the attack – which took place in a popular central London tourist area close to the scene of the July 7 London bus bombing in 2005 – and said terrorism was “one line of inquiry that we should explore”.
Mr Rowley said that so far no evidence has been found of radicalisation that would suggest the man in custody was “in any way motivated by terrorism”
ISIS supporters have already expressed delight at the stabbing attack in London that left one American woman dead and five people injured. The ISIS-linked group account on private social media channels linked to on Twitter published pictures on the aftermath of the attack.
The Arabic-language account, called the ‘News Publishing Service’, which has a logo incorporating a rifle said: ‘Here you have a picture of the site where the stabbing took place, Russell Square in the centre of ‘Christendom’ London.’ It was also reported that an Arabic-language account wrote that ‘It’s nice to wake up to such news’.
Russia Today gives a better account than the British media:
