The public reacts skeptically to mental health explanation for stabbings by London man of Somali descent.
Another day. Another vicious attack against innocent civilians. The latest such attack occurred Wednesday evening in London at Russell Square, very near where a bomb detonated during the July 7, 2005 terrorist attack. A 19-year-old Norwegian-Somali man knifed an American woman to death and injured several other people, before being subdued and arrested by the police. The nationalities of the injured victims are British, Australian, Israeli and another American. The police are not completely ruling out that this attack was terror-related. However, in an all too familiar pattern that was demonstrated by the German police reaction to some of the recent attacks in that country, the British police are pointing to the attacker’s mental health as a “significant factor.”
