London police treating Tube station stabbings as ‘terrorist incident
A man stabbed three people at an east London Tube station, and authorities say they are investigating the attack as a terrorist incident.

The assailant, believed to be 29, was subdued with a stun gun and arrested, London’s Metropolitan Police said.

One man, 56, suffered serious injuries that were not considered life-threatening, police said. Two others suffered minor injuries in the attack Saturday night.

‘This is for Syria’
Police are looking into reports that the suspect yelled “This is for Syria” during the attack, said Chioma Dijeh, a spokeswoman for Metropolitan Police.

“We are treating this as a terrorist incident,” said Cmdr. Richard Walton, head of the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command.

“I would urge the public to remain calm, but alert and vigilant. The threat from terrorism remains at severe, which means that a terrorist attack is highly likely.”

UK faces terrorist threat
The United Kingdom is facing stepped-up threats from ISIS — especially after British fighter planes began flying sorties against ISIS targets in Syria this week.

Intelligence obtained by European security agencies indicates ISIS is aiming to attack the United Kingdom as a follow-up to its attacks in Paris last month, a senior European counterterrorism official told CNN.

The Tube, also called the London Underground, is the city’s subway system. It has 270 stations on 11 lines that stretch a total of 250 miles.

In 2005, suicide bombers attacked three Underground trains and a double-decker bus in a coordinated attack that left 52 people dead and more than 770 wounded. A British al Qaeda operative planned the bombings, according to internal al Qaeda documents that surfaced in 2012.
