UK attack suspects part of previous investigations

LONDON (AP) - Two men accused of butchering a British soldier had been part of previous investigations by security services, a British official said today, as investigators searched several locations and tried to determine whether the men were part of a wider plot to instill terror on the streets of London. The men, suspected of hacking the off-duty soldier to death while horrified bystanders watched, boasted of their exploits and warned of more violence in images recorded on witnesses’ mobile phones. Holding bloody knives and a meat cleaver, they waited for the arrival of police, who shot them in the legs, according to a passerby who tried to save the dying soldier.
