The Thames Valley Police Station has confirmed media reports of at least three people killed in a knife attack on Saturday night in a park in the British town of Reading.
A police spokesperson told reporters that there were also three injured people who were hospitalized on an emergency basis. However, he denied the media version that the attack was a terrorist act, stating that it was not being considered at the moment.
The police also do not link the attack to protests against racism and violence by the Black Lives Matter police, which are taking place in several Western countries after the murder of George Floyd by a policeman in American Minneapolis.
According to some media reports, the attacker comes from Libya. According to eyewitnesses, about the time he “shouted something unintelligible”.
