London Terrorist Attack

Jahir Gavidia, Staff Writer

A man who had recently been released from prison for terror offenses was shot dead by British police Sunday after stabbing two people in South London. Undercover police officers shot Sudesh Amman, a 20 years old who had served time in jail for distributing terrorism related material, after he launched a knife while wearing a fake suicide vest. The incident, the latest in a series of terrorist attacks to have hit London in recent years, shines a spotlight on the country’s judicial system. British police continued to track him after his release and undercover officers moved quickly to halt the attack on Sunday in the London borough of Lambeth.
