Last night’s news feed featured a report on knife attack against police in front of Buckingham Palace in London. I remarked in my introduction that there was no report yet of any “Allahu Akhbar” during the incident.
Well, now there is. And it included a ramming attack. And not only that, the mujahid who carried out the attack had a four-foot sword with him.
The attacker is said to be a “Lutonian”. I wouldn’t be surprised if he is one of the beanie-and-nightshirt guys who assault Tommy Robinson on the streets of Luton.
According to the The International Business Times:
Buckingham Palace Attacker Armed With ‘4ft Sword’
Man arrested outside Buckingham Palace after ‘attacking two police officers’
A man who was apprehended by police outside Buckingham Palace last night (25 August) was armed with a 4ft sword, Scotland Yard confirmed.
The 26-year-old from Luton repeatedly shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ after ‘deliberately’ ramming his Toyota Prius into a marked police car in Constitution Hill, close to the royal residence at around 8.30pm on Friday. (25 August)
The suspect reached for the weapon in the passenger footwell. Three police officers were injured as they struggled to restrain him. He was finally subdued using CS gas and arrested Sky News reports.
Scotland Yard confirmed the attacker has been detained at a central London police station on suspicion of assault and grievous bodily harm under the Terrorism Act 2000.
