British Prime Minister David Cameron is demanding intelligence and security heads explain how two Islamist terror suspects could massacre a soldier in the streets when the two had been surveillance targets of MI5 for the past eight years.
The attack that killed an off-duty soldier in London this week appears, like the Boston Marathon bombing, to have been the work of home-grown, "lone-wolf" extremists, underlining the very different kind of threat posed by al Qaeda now that its leadership has largely been destroyed and its ideology of global jihad left largely in the hands of individuals and small groups all over the world.
The British government's emergency committee met Thursday after two attackers butchered a British soldier in a daylight attack in London that raised fears terrorism had returned to the capital.
British police late Thursday arrested a man and a woman in connection with the butchering of a British soldier on a London street, as anti-Muslim protests sprang up across the country.
A British government official says both suspects in the brutal killing of a solider were part of previous security services investigations for possible terror links.
