(Lucas : after having a couple of things happening very quickly and announcing a terror Cobra Meeting with the Cabinet after the attack makes me think there is something not right and fishy about the story line here. But that are my thoughts and feelings about it. In the attack black muslims were pointed out, etc. They where speculating already on what the consequences where for troops in the UK, people …. It seems all a bit to convenient.)

The government is reported to be treating the assault as a suspected terrorist incident and the prime minister said it was “truly shocking”.
Home Secretary Theresa May has summoned a meeting of the government’s emergency response committee Cobra.
Local MP Nick Raynsford said the dead man was a soldier at Woolwich barracks but this has not been confirmed.
