London - Counter-terrorism police in Britain are
investigating a stabbing at a London Underground station in which a suspect
injured two people with a knife and reportedly said: "This is for Syria”.
Police arrested a man believed to be 29 years old late on
Saturday and said they are treating the attack at east London's Leytonstone
subway station as a "terrorist incident”.
They declined to say whether they are looking for other
suspects, saying probes are ongoing.
One man suffered serious knife injuries and was in the
hospital in stable condition.
Another man received minor injuries, while a woman was
threatened but not hurt.
A video shot by a witness immediately after the attack
shows the suspect lunging at police officers who try to subdue him.
The suspect remained in custody on Sunday.
