[Ed. – Interesting how quickly the police came out to call the attack terrorism.  It may have to do with the fact that there was a BLM protest a short time before, at the park where the attack occurred.  A Libyan suspect is now reportedly in custody.]

Video footage on social media shows multiple people with serious injuries being treated by emergency workers in Forbury Gardens, Reading, after a Black Lives Matter protest was held there earlier in the day. Police say there is currently “no indication” the attack, described by sources as “terror-related”, was linked to the BLM event.

UPDATE: 11:30 p.m. A source told the Sunday Mirror that the Reading stabbings were brought to an end when “a hero police officer saw a suspect running away with a knife and ‘rugby tackled him to the ground‘.”

The stabbings are believed to be terror-related and has left three dead and several injured, according to reports. Press Association security sources have claimed the suspect is a Libyan national.
