According to reports from UK news outlets and Twitter users, a man weilding an axe is running rampant through the London Bridge metro station.
There is a “heavy police presence” and the London Bridge station has been evacuated.
According to the number of tweets from users in London, a man with an axe was on a train at the station. However, that report is still unconfirmed. The police only confirmed that there was an “incident” at the London Bridge station.
This incident happened after merely days after the London machete terror attacks — when 2 men armed with machetes brutally murdered a solider on the streets of London in broad daylight.
Michael Adebolajo, one of the attackers, then was recorded going on a political tirade discussing British foreign politics and can be heard saying “Your country doesn’t care about you.” He also apologized for the women who had to witness his attack, for some reason. You can watch the video of the “interview” here.
The brutal murder of the solider 2 days ago incited a race-fueled riot by the English Defence League, a group who actively promote profiling Muslims in the UK. Thankfully, no one was injured, but as you can see in the video, the EDL and the police in London got a tad physical.
Here are some photos of the situation at London:
