LONDONA terrorist killed two people in a stabbing attack in the heart of London before being shot dead by police, U.K. officials said, prompting authorities to lock down a busy area on the edge of the financial district and bringing back memories of a 2017 rampage nearby.
In a separate incident Friday evening, three people were wounded in a stabbing on a busy shopping street in the center of The Hague, Netherlands. Dutch police said the motive wasnt immediately clear and that the suspect got away.
Authorities in London called the attack there terrorism but offered no further details on the assailants motive. Police identified the suspect as 28-year-old Usman Khan. He had been convicted in 2012 for terrorism offenses and served time in prison for the part he played in the plot to bomb the London Stock Exchange in 2010.
Police received the first alarm call at 1:58 p.m. local time. Witnesses described a man with a knife appearing to burst out of Fishmongers Hall, a historic building on the north side of London Bridge used for events that was hosting a prisoner rehabilitation conference. He was being pushed away from the building by three or four other men, one of them brandishing a fire extinguisher, 48-year-old Gary Lawrence said.
According to a video taken by another witness, several bystanders rushed over to tackle the man, pinning him to the ground. Another man appeared to disarm the suspect, pulling a long knife from the melee, according to the video footage.

Released from prison on purpose by the globalist elite.

The judge who gave him the lenient sentence should hang as a co-conspirator for the murder of the two Brits.
Government sanctioned murder.
Probably a close relative of the mayor.
Well, he won’t be doing that again.
Kahn murdering terrorist
Kahn London Mayor
Dutch (French, German, Swedish, you name it) said they did not know the motive of the attacks............
Will the UK do something to control the spread of the violent ideology that inspired the POS to stab innocent humans? Never. The UK bows down and worships them!
No doubt he prayed 5x a day, maybe his middle name was mohammad, went to his local mosque every Friday for prayers & displayed a perfect human behavior. Of course neighbors, friends & the local Imam were shocked.
Least surprising article posted today.
The stupid part of this is the guy seen running with a bloodied knife.
When I first saw it I thought he was the attacker.
He should have thrown that knife down once he was far away in case somebody came up and thought he was part of it. He could have been shot in the US
The rate at which England is allowing itself to become the enemy is increasing.
Just part of living in a Big City, right?
UK needs to bring back the death penalty for murder, rape, kidnapping of children, and terrorism. (So does the US) It’s time to return to traditional punishments that helped make us civilized.
Just part of living in a Big City, right?
You forgot PARCEL!
And that is how the authorities weren’t clueless about his motives so immediately called it terrorism.
This is what happens when you bow down to kiss muzzy butt and not protect your own citizens.
Britain invited the vampires in, Now they complain about them being a “pain in the neck.”
And why are Bobbies now armed with machine guns? To stop Indigenous Englishmen from rioting?
