A man has been hacked to death in London and British officials are said to be treating it as an Islamist terrorist attack. The government's called an urgent meeting of its crisis response committee. It happened in daylight close to a military barracks in Woolwich, in south London. A local parliamentarian says the dead man was a serving British soldier. Media reports say two young men hit the victim in a car, and then used a machete and butchers' knives to kill him in the street. One witness reportedly said the assailants stood around, waving knives and a gun, and asked people to film them. Officials say two men were shot and injured by police.
