On 3 August 2016, a mass stabbing occurred in Russell Square, London. Six people were stabbed, one fatally, before a suspect, identified as Zakaria Bulhan, was apprehended by police and charged with murder and attempted murder. The media initially linked the stabbing to Islamic terrorism, but later shifted its focus to possible mental disorders.
Events[edit]

London's Metropolitan Police Service and London Ambulance Service arrived at the scene six minutes after emergency services were called at 22:33. Less than ten minutes later, a man was arrested at the scene after being taseredby police.[1][2][3]

Victims[edit]

Six people, apparently selected at random, were stabbed.[4] A 64-year-old American, Darlene Horton, died at the scene. She had planned to fly back to Florida the following day.[5][6][7][8] An American man, a British man, an Australian man, an Australian woman, and an Israeli woman were injured.[7][9] The British man remained in hospital with serious abdominal wounds.[10]

Suspect[edit]

Zakaria Bulhan[11] was a 19-year-old male Norwegian national of Somali descent.[5] He was described as a Muslim[12][13][14][15] who "didn't really talk about religion."[16] He moved from Norway in 2002, and was unemployed and living with his mother and younger brother in TootingSouth London.[1][17][18]
Not long before the stabbing, Bulhan completed his first studies at South Thames College, and had been a patient at a psychiatric facility near Russell Square. According to a family friend, Bulhan called an ambulance three separate times in the last six months, claiming he wanted to harm himself. According to The Independent, a profile in Bulhan's name on a book rating website "shows an interest in Islamic theology, listing a biography of the Prophet Mohamed and a book of Quran verses and hadiths as recent reads."[4][18][19]

Legal proceedings[edit]

Following his arrest, Bulhan was treated in hospital and later held in custody at a police station in South London.[1] On 5 August, he was charged with the murder of Horton, along with five counts of attempted murder.[9][20] He appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court on 6 August,[21] where he was remanded in custody.[22] The trial is expected to take place in February 2017.[23]

Investigation[edit]

The Metropolitan Police initially said they were exploring terrorism as a possible motive.[3] They later said the investigation "increasingly points" to the attack being "triggered by mental health issues", and that the stabbings were random. Norwegian police cooperated in the investigation.[5]

Reactions[edit]

In an interview after the attack, the Mayor of LondonSadiq Khan, said, "London is one of the safest capitals in the world". He added, "It is a reality in 2016 – especially when you look at what happened in Nice, in Brussels, in Munich, in parts of America – we've always got to be vigilant and never complacent."[1]
