Man stabs himself in head at London airport


LONDON: A man was taken to hospital after he repeatedly stabbed himself in the head on Wednesday at London’s Heathrow airport, police and British media said, triggering panic among passengers. The Guardian reported that airline employees disarmed the man before airport security, paramedics, and police arrived. A Heathrow spokesman said it was believed the man took the knife from a shop in a departure area of the terminal after security checks and that “it would not have been a really sharp object.” London is on high alert after a stabbing attack in a London Underground train station earlier this month that police said was a “terrorist incident.”
