In what may be a coordinated knife attack, two people were  injured when a man went on a stabbing spree in London. Hours later in Ghent, Belgium, two more people were injured when a woman stabbed two people. The two incidents are being treated as terrorism related.

Terror stabbings in London – Again

At Streatham High Road in London, a man was seen with a large knife and had silver canisters around his neck. Police shot and killed him after he stabbed two people. A third person was injured from glass after the police discharged their weapons. One male is being treated for life-threatening injuries, one woman has non-life-threatening injuries. There was some concern over a possible suicide vest. It was determined to be a hoax device, according to Metro Police.

The street was closed off as police swarmed the area. Helicopters, armed officers and ambulances arrived. One person claimed that the man was shouting “allahu akbar” as he stabbed the two people.

“My grandson was in the Odeon and they got told to go out the back because there was a bomb. They got them to go out of the back of the cinema. They were there to watch a film…

When it’s a member of your family so close to you, you don’t expect it. You’re always worried about your family being on the streets but this is even worse.

“I heard two people got stabbed and apparently one man was shouting Allahu Akbar but people thought he was just a crazy man, so he got away. Apparently he had two rucksacks…” Richard Mustonen-Smith, 59, a response pastor for Ascension Trust to Daily Mail.

Police stated that the incident was being classed as terror-related due to the man being under “active surveillance” as an Islamist. Police response to the incident was rapid – along with the undercover officers present, according to Breitbart.

Terror stabbings in Ghent, Belgium

About an hour later in Ghent, Belgium, a woman with a knife stabbed two citizens. Police shot her in the hand and pinned her to the ground. The victims were transported to the local hospital, their conditions unknown.

Most reports stated that the Belgium incident was also considered terrorism, while one French news media stated “didn’t know for sure.” The woman was described as a “dark skinned individual” in an Alerts USA report, confirmed by Breitbart.
