A developing story coming out of London — a possible terror attack has left one person dead and two injured. ITV has exclusive footage of who is believed to be one of two attackers. We warn you, the images are graphic.
“A man with bloodied hands carrying a knife and machete approaches a camera…”
“I’m sorry the women had to witness this today but in our land our women have to see this every day. Remove your government they don’t care about you.”

The Telegraph talked to a taxi driver who witnessed the attack. He said, “he saw a black car swerve off the pavement and crash, before two men got out with weapons… ‘Some people were panicking, as you would when people start swinging machetes around. It's pretty shocking.’"
Although details are still scarce, London police held a brief press conference.
“Firearms officers attended the scene, on arrival they found a man who was later pronounced dead… Two men, who we believe from earlier reports to have been carrying weapons, were shot by police.” (Via Sky News)
Those suspects were taken to separate hospitals where they are being treated for their injuries. The U.K.’s Channel Five news reports it has been confirmed that the man killed in the attack was a serving soldier.
“My understanding is that it did involve a completely unprovoked attack… This is an area where there is a positive relationship between the army and the local community and this event is deeply shocking because of that.”
The attack was also near a school but no school children were reported injured.
