    Officers from local police units arrested a man minutes after being called at 10.33pm. A Taser was used by one of the arresting officers.

    As detail emerged, the decision was made to have the counter-terrorism command involved in the investigation.

    The police statement said: “Terrorism is one possibility being explored at this stage.”
    “A man was arrested at 22:39 hours and a Taser was discharged by one of the arresting officers. Additional police units have been deployed to the area to provide reassurance.

    “Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

    “Terrorism is one possibility being explored at this stage.”

    Scotland Yard had earlier on Wednesday announced an extra 600 officers armed officers were being deployed on patrol in London after the recent terror attacks in France and Germany.

    More to follow soon ...

    “We came around the corner and there were armed police everywhere … a massive police presence … and a corpse lying in the street covered in a blanket.

    “Apparently it was a gang stabbed a woman and she’s dead.
    “We went into the bar across the street and the officers came to interview us … we didn’t actually see anything but some people in the bar saw something.”

    Extra police have been deployed in the area to provide reassurance.

    The full police statement said: “Police were called at 22:33 hours on Wednesday 3 August to reports of a man seen in possession of a knife injuring people at Russell Square, WC1.

    “Officers attended the scene along with the London Ambulance Service. Up to six people were found injured at the location.

    “A female (no further details) was treated at the scene but was pronounced dead a short time later. We await an update on the condition of the other persons injured and details of any other injuries.

    The police spokesman at Scotland Yard said a 19 year old man is in police custody in hospital. The attack is believed to involve mental health issues. The lady who sadly died is in her 60s according to Sky news UK.

    The attacker is a 19 year old Somalian Norwegian. So they know his age and have already decided the cause was "mental health issues" but aren't releasing his name.

    What is it noteworthy to not release his name?

    Are the laws different than the US about releasing suspect's names?

    The only other thing I can think of is they believe he'd be in danger if they released it.

    Or maybe they're not sure of his identity?

    There are various circumstances under which a suspect's name would not be released straightaway. Are they automatically released in the USA?

    Why is it always blamed on mental health? Some people are just vicious a**holes. If this is the case, wouldn't all murderers be mentally ill?
