A sword-wielding man attacked and injured five people in East London, United Kingdom, on Tuesday (30/4). According to local police, a 13-year-old boy died in the attack and four others were hospitalized. Among them, two police officers tried to restrain the accused.

According to the British tabloid “Daily Mail”, the 36-year-old man crashed a car into the front of a house in the Hainault neighborhood. Then, with a sword in hand, he attacked passers-by, including two police officers and a teenager. After the attack, he was chased and arrested.

According to local authorities, the attack “does not appear to be related to terrorism”. “We are awaiting an update on the condition of the injured. A 36-year-old man was arrested at the scene and remanded in custody,” he continued.

On social media, London Mayor Sadiq Khan lamented what had happened and thanked the emergency services for “running towards the danger and paying tribute to the extraordinary courage shown by the police at the scene”. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak wrote on X (formerly Twitter).
