“Mental health” might be to blame.
Let the psychobabble begin.
Google “London stabbings”, there is quite a lot of stabbing going on.
Russell Square stabbings: One dead, five hurt in London attack
A woman has died and five other people were injured in a knife attack in Russell Square, central London.
Police were called at 22:33 BST on Wednesday to reports of a man injuring people with a knife, including a woman in her 60s who later died.
A 19-year-old man was arrested at 22:39 after a Taser was discharged by an officer. The Met said mental health was a “significant factor” in the events.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan called for the public to remain “calm and vigilant”.
You bet he would. Next statement “nothing to do with Islam”.
Mr Khan said his “heart goes out to the victims of the incident in Russell Square and their loved ones”.
Two other women and three men received various injuries in the attack, Scotland Yard confirmed later.
Paul O’Geibheannaigh, who lives near to the square, said he had seen the body of the woman “on the pavement” and the area was surrounded by a “heavy armed police presence”.
“I haven’t seen a police presence like that in this area since 7/7,” he said, referring to the terror attacks on the London transport system in July 2005.
