A woman in her 60s has died and five other people have been injured after a man with 'significant mental health issues' allegedly 'went on the rampage' with a knife in a possible terror-related attack in central London.
Police confirmed a 19-year-old man was arrested after being Tasered in connection with a mass stabbing in front of horrified onlookers in Russell Square at about 10.30pm last night. He remains in hospital under armed guard.
Fears that the knifeman operated with an accomplice were raised in the early hours as the Met refused to rule out further suspects. One witness said he saw 'a man flee on a motorbike', while another described hearing a victim 'screaming and covered in blood'. Photos show what appear to be a bladed weapon abandoned at the scene.
Officers arrived to find six people injured including one woman who died a short time later. The condition of the other five - one man and four women - is not yet known and police have not released their names or ages.
The incident occurred in the same area as where one of the 7/7 bombs detonated in 2005. A total of 26 people were killed when Germaine Lindsay, 19, detonated a suicide bomb on a Piccadilly line Tube as it moved between King's Cross station and Russell Square.
Last night's incident also comes just hours after the Met unveiled its brand new elite anti-terror unit.
Scotland Yard confirmed that 'terrorism is one possibility being explored at this stage' and also said that early indications suggest that 'mental health is a significant factor in this case'.

Of course "mental health" is might be a factor....it's called RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM.
Also, I pulled the statement below from the article. These recent terrorists attacks all seem to have witness that see THREE suspects but when all is said and done, it always turns out to be one. Fox News reported on this tonight for all of about 45 seconds and basically reiterated the talking points from this article...that authorities are looking at "mental health" as a factor but aren't ruling out terrorism.
So, the MSM marching orders are out and they are dutifully complying. May the MSM demise come sooner, rather than later...
A 35-year-old man, who did not wish to be named, said he saw three men fleeing nearby Queen Square shortly after the incident. 'One man fled on a motorcycle heading down a pedestrianised area,' he said. 'He obviously looked in a hurry.'
