Mayor of London Sadiq Khan recently admitted that knife crime keeps him awake at night – and with fatal stabbings of teenagers in the capital rising to their highest level
Britain will on Monday honour the two people who were killed when a militant knife man went on a stabbing spree near London Bridge in an attack that has thrust criminal justice to the centre of the election campaign.
Al Araimi was stabbed to death by a few masked men at the Knightsbridge area, near the famous Harrods Store, in the British capital.
An eyewitness told Sky News she had seen several people covered in blood being treated by emergency services after an incident at a city centre hotel, and armed police on the scene, at around 1:15pm.
The Metropolitan Police have said it is believed that a number of people have been stabbed in broad daylight on Streatham High Road and the incident has been declared as “terrorist-related.”
Detectives said they were not, for now, treating Saturday’s attack in the town of Reading as terrorism, though the counterterrorism unit is supporting the investigation. They said they were keeping an "open mind” about the motive.
