Knifeman screams ‘this is for Syria’ in London tube ‘machete’ attack

A knifeman launched a terrorist attack in the London Underground Saturday night, seriously injuring one man and wounding two other people, as he screamed "this is for Syria". Police subdued him with a stun gun before cuffing him and taking him into custody.
Scotland Yard declared they were treating the attack at Leytonstone station, east London, as "a terrorist incident". This was the first terrorist attack on British soil since the murder of fusilier Lee Rigby on May 22, 2013.
