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.

One of the victims, a woman in her 60s, was treated at the scene but was pronounced dead a short time later.

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.

Scotland Yard's assistant commissioner for specialist operations, Mark Rowley, said one woman and four men had suffered various injuries in the attack.

The Met's homicide command was leading the investigation into the attack, with support from the counter-terrorism unit, he said.

He went on: "Of course at this stage we should keep an open mind regarding motive and consequently terrorism as a motivation remains... one line of inquiry for us to explore."

Seems like every incident is going to have terrorism linked to it now regardless of other circumstances. 

 

Condolences to the family of woman who died, and wishing the other victims a full recovery.

I'm not sure it's news worthy or new thread worthy. Yes it's not very nice for the victims, but there are knife attacks and stabbings up and down the country most days.

Yeah, mass stabbings happen all the time up and down the country don't they?

Terrible. You can't even go to the store anymore without something happening smh

My wife managed to visit two stores yesterday, carrying a baby too, and came out of it unscathed.  She must be like a female Bryan Mills.

I can't tell you how many of us crossed the bridge into England yesterday.

But I counted them all out, and I counted them all back again.

This incident is terrible for the people involved, the worst possible events. But we can't drown in the rush to report every incident. In some scruffy attempt at context, the UK has 4 or 5 fatalities on the roads every single day of every single year.

Actually more often tan you'd think. My gf works for the ambulance service and told me last weekend that 4 people had been stabbed in one incident in Birmingham last weekend and that wasn't the first time that month they'd had stuff like that.
