Another potential terrorist attack in London was prevented by good (if tech-spy overkill) policing. A foreign invader, whom I shall name “Abdul”, was tackled to the ground and arrested after being surveilled around Westminster.
The terror suspect who was detained with a ‘rucksack full of knives’ near Parliament square had been tracked on an intricate web of CCTV cameras by police and MI5.
Armed police ‘swarmed like bees’ on the bearded man just before 2.30pm after his concerned family reportedly alerted security services.
Witnesses said the man, who was wearing a tracksuit and trainers, was crossing Whitehall amid the usual crowds of tourists and political staff when a police car suddenly pulled up and officers confronted him, just five weeks after the Westminster terror attack killed that five people.
But, unbeknown to him, the suspect had been tailed from the moment he got off the Underground at St James’s Park – where he had travelled from east London – and headed towards Westminster.
While covert teams trailed him on the ground, a live feed was being sent to control rooms in New Scotland Yard and the MI5’s Thames House before they gave the order for them to swoop in.
“Abdul” smirks the smirk of Jihad. I have some ideas on how to wipe that off… Daily Mail.
Based on recent observations his mistake was the subway. One can’t jump a train onto the sidewalk. He should have rented an SUV or a truck instead. There’s a formula: drive the sidewalks first; stab and slash second, and finish with “Allahu Akbar!” immediately prior to being martyered. Hopefully he won’t get a chance to correct his errors.
Taqiyya this one away.
