    ''One man was arrested after three people were knifed to death and another three seriously injured in a mass stabbing in a British park — but authorities now say the incident is not being considered a terror attack.

    The suspect, a 25-year-old resident of Reading, England, apparently walked into the crowded Forbury Gardens park on a bright summer evening and began slashing people at random, according to reports. At least 12 people were stabbed.

    One witness described the alleged stabber as a “long person” walking through the park who “suddenly shouted some unintelligible words and went round a large group trying to stab them,” according to the BBC.''

    Or a controlled explosion, or even just what they needed to break down the door.

    I'm so sorry that people were killed and traumatized by this man. I'm glad he was caught, and I hope that justice is swift and adequate.

    Reading attack suspect 'known to MI5'
    "The man held on suspicion of killing three people at a park in Reading was known to MI5, security sources say.

    Khairi Saadallah, 25, from the town, was arrested at the scene on Saturday and police say they are not looking for anyone else over the terror incident.

    Sources told the BBC he is originally from Libya and came to the attention of MI5 in 2019."
    ...

    "Security sources told the BBC the suspect came to the attention of the security services after they received information he had aspirations to travel to Syria - potentially for terrorism."
