Libyan jailed for life for UK stabbing spree

Mon, 11th Jan 2021 16:16

LONDON, Jan 11 (Reuters) - A man was told he would spend the
rest of his life behind bars by a British judge on Tuesday for
murdering three men in a stabbing spree at a park in an attack
last year deemed a terrorist incident.

Libyan Khairi Saadallah, 26, had pleaded guilty to murdering
the men and stabbing three others with a five-inch knife on the
evening of June 20 in the southern English town of Reading.

Eyewitnesses heard him say “Allahu Akbar” (‘God is great’)
during the incident, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said in
a statement.

"Khairi Saadallah carried out a brutal, pre-planned attack
on groups of friends enjoying an evening in the park where they
would have felt completely safe," said Jenny Hopkins, head of
the CPS's Special Crime and Counter Terrorism Division.
