London attack called 'barbaric act of terrorism
LONDON -- British authorities are calling a deadly attack in London a barbaric act of terrorism.
Two men with butcher knives hacked a British soldier to death in broad daylight.
Investigators say equally shocking the attackers did not run off after the attack.
Instead approaching confused bystanders with their bloody hands to deliver a message.
"You people will never be safe."

"Total chaos. I don't believe someone has been targeted this way in an area
That I live in."

They remain in the hospital.
Investigators say one of the suspects Michael Adebolajo was born in Britain.
