A U.K. lawmaker told reporters Wednesday that a serving British soldier was killed outside an army barracks in southeast London and two suspects are in custody.
The London Times reported that one of the attackers shouted "Allahu Akhbar" ("God is Great" in Arabic) as they attacked the soldier Wednesday afternoon with meat cleavers.
One of the suspects is injured and in the hospital, and no other people are being sought, Nick Raynsford, a lawmaker who represents the Greenwich and Woolwich areas of London, said in an interview on Sky News. The incident may have started because of a traffic accident, he said.
"Sadly, one patient, a man, was dead," London’s Ambulance Service said in a statement. "Staff treated two other patients, both men, who were taken to hospital, one of them in serious condition."
