UK counter-terrorist police probe attempted murder as terrorist incident

STANWELL, ENGLAND, UK (MARCH 17, 2019)(BBC) – British counter terrorism police said on Sunday (March 17) they were investigating an attempted murder which “has hallmarks of a terror event, inspired by the far-right” and a 50-year-old man has been arrested.

Counter Terrorism Police South East said it was investigating the non-fatal stabbing of a 19-year-old man on Saturday (March 16) evening in Stanwell, southern England, following reports of a man “acting aggressively and shouting racist comments whilst carrying a baseball bat and a knife”.

“Whilst this investigation is still in its infancy, it has hallmarks of a terror event, inspired by the far-right, and therefore it has been declared a terrorism incident,” Neil Basu, head of counter terrorism policing, said in a statement.
