A 20-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after stabbing a police officer in the head.
A 20-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, after a police officer was stabbed in the head in south London.
Police were called to Cooks Road, Walworth, shortly after 8pm yesterday, where they had been told a violent man armed with a knife had picked up a baby.
When they arrived, the police tried to speak to the man. He put the child down, but then attacked the officers.
One PC, in his 30s, suffered stab injuries to his head and shoulder. He was taken to hospital for treatment and has since been discharged.
The attacker was arrested and is currently in custody at a south London police station. An investigation into the incident is underway.
A British man identified in reports as the Islamic State executioner known as "Jihadi John" feared he was a "dead man walking" after run-ins with security services before fleeing to Syria, email exchanges with a journalist have claimed.
Computer programming graduate Mohammed Emwazi said he considered suicide after coming face to face with what he suspected to be a British spy as he attempted to sell a laptop computer in 2010.
In an email exchange with the Mail on Sunday at the time, Emwazi described how he became suspicious of the buyer after they met.
He told theMail on Sunday's security editor Robert Verkaik he felt harassed by security services, in a series of emails in 2010, three years before he left to join IS, saying, "Sometimes I feel like a dead man walking, not fearing they (MI5) may kill me.
The former head of MI6 has labelled claims that UK security services helped radicalise the terrorist known as Jihadi John as "very false and very transparent".
The militant, who was captured on a number of videos showing the beheading of Islamic State captives, has now been identified as former British student Mohammed Emwazi.
Advocacy group Cage has claimed that Emwazi was driven into extremism after being "harrassed" by intelligence agencies who tried to recruit him.
Sir John Sawers, who was head of MI6 from 2009 to 2014, refused to comment on the specific case, but called the argument "very specious".
London-based advocacy and human rights group CAGE said one of their researchers had spoken to the Washington Post about the identity of 'Jihadi John' and had provided some information.
The masked IS killer has been named as Mohammed Emwazi by the Washington Post. In a statement, the group said:
Muhammad Emwazi had contacted CAGE when he tried to plan a trip home to Kuwait and was apparently prevented from doing so. Cage said he told them at the time:
CCTV footage apparently showing three British schoolgirls feared to have entered Syria to join Islamic State has been released by Turkish news channel A Haber.
The three girls, believed to be Shamima Begum, 15, Kadiza Sultana, 16, and 15-year-old Amira Abase, are seen at a bus station in Istanbul in the video.
It was reportedly recorded in the early hours of February 18 - the day after the teenagers disappeared from their London homes.
Turkish Airlines says it is assisting an investigation into three British schoolgirls who are feared to have crossed into Syria to join Islamic State.
Amira Abase and Shamima Begum, both 15, and 16-year-old Kadiza Sultana boarded a Turkish Airlines flight from Gatwick to Istanbul on February 17 and police believe the London trio have now crossed the Turkish border into Syria.
A statement from the airline said: "Turkish Airlines is assisting the relevant government bodies in their inquiries but is unable to respond to or comment specifically in relation to the subject matter of ongoing investigations."
Earlier this week, Labour's shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper said Turkish Airlines had "serious questions" to answer over why it allowed the girls unaccompanied on to a flight.
David Cameron says "lessons need to be learned" from the case of three British schoolgirls feared to have entered Syria to join Islamic State.
Responding to a question from the Labour MP for Bethnal Green and Bow, where the three teenagers came from, Mr Cameron said the UK needed to "tighten arrangements" at airports and borders.
He also called on schools, parents, universities to help fight the "poisonous ideology" of extremist groups such as Islamic State.
The Prime Minister also dismissed claims by the Turkish deputy prime minister that British authorities took three days to notify Turkey of the girls' movements as "not accurate".
