U.K. Soldiers Warned: ‘No Uniforms’

    An armed soldier stands guard at the gate of the Royal Artillery Barracks near the scene of a terror attack in Woolwich, southeast London. Police remained at the scene throughout the night after a brutal attack in a London street Wednesday, which left one member of the armed forces dead and two injured, and the two attackers were also hospitalized.  The British government Cabinet's emergency committee immediately called a meeting and Prime Minister David Cameron's office said security was stepped up at barracks across London.

    Officials have confirmed that the man who was beheaded in broad daylight outside a London military barracks Wednesday was a soldier, although his identity has yet to be released. Prime Minister David Cameron—who called  the incident “sickening” on Twitter Thursday—held a meeting with the government’s emergency response committee, Cobra. While the investigation continues, British soldiers have been warned not to wear their uniforms outside. After leaving the Cobra meeting, London Mayor Boris Johnson cautioned against classifying the two attackers—who have both been arrested— as Islamic extremists. “It is completely wrong to blame this killing on the religion of Islam,” he said. “What we need now… is justice."
