    I'm no Brit supporter. But yeah, gotta hand it to them. Hardly read about serious crime over there. When you do, the suspects are actually caught. Unlike SA. Besides, this is unique type of crime. Part political, part religious. Possibly revenge for the slaying of a soldier. So, not your day to day story of SA.

    Look as though all the Islamic extremists will soon be exiting the British Isles taking all muslims with them!

    Once again News24 has shown its poor taste in the selection of a graphic image. Try a little harder to be professional News24!

      I don't see the image as inappropriate. What do you want, dead bodies, knife wounds....... This after all a story about a stabbing.

      It is disrespectful.

    If .....lets say 70% of the daily crime in SA gets published in newspapers , u will need a wheelbarrow to take the paper home ... 100% will require a pickup .

    Be interesting to establish the affiliations of the attacker. There is much anti-Islamic sentiment in Britain at moments so was this a Christian maniac attacking Muslims or Muslim maniac attacking Muslims belonging to a different cult.

      It was a muslim maniac attacking muslims, Britain should just let them go at it - problem solved!
