Khan’s London: Afghan Migrant Asked People If They Were English, Stabbed Them If They Said Yes, Court Hears. By Jack Montgomery.

Jurors at the Old Bailey were shown CCTV footage which prosecutors said showed Samiulahaq Akbari, 32, approaching shoppers at a Tesco Extra in Thornton Heath armed with a large knife, asking them if they were English, and trying to stab them if they answered in the affirmative …

The court heard that Akbari’s cousin called the 999 emergency number and told operators his relative “said he wants to kill the English people. I can see his eyes, he’s serious… He will do it. He’s trying to run and he will kill someone. Please come quickly.”
