Cameron to chair emergency meeting in wake of London machete attack

UK Prime Minister David Cameron cut short a Paris trip to return to London to chair a Cobra emergency response meeting on the morning of May 23 – following a suspected terrorist attack in the British capital.

A man, thought to be a soldier, died after being attacked with a machete in Woolwich, south-east London on May 22.

Speaking Paris on the evening of the attack, Cameron said: “We will look at every aspect of security. We will look at every aspect of what you can learn from these incidents.”

“But we also have to remember that in a free country like ours, the best way to defeat terrorism is to make sure that you continue to go about your life, to live your life and show that terrorists can never win,” the British prime minister continued.
