UK police rule out terror in London mosque stabbing

British police on Thursday said they were not treating as terror related a London mosque stabbing in which an elderly worshipper suffered non life-threatening injuries. "A 29-year-old man, who is believed to have been attending prayers, was arrested inside the mosque on suspicion of attempted murder," the London police said in a statement. The London Central Mosque said the assailant stabbed its Muazzin -- a religious leader who calls the faithful to prayer -- during the fifth daily prayer.

One witness told Britain's domestic Press Association that the suspect "was praying behind him and then he stabbed him".
