Too early to say if London vehicle attack was terrorism

Not enough information is available yet to say with certainty the allegedly hate-motivated London vehicle attack was an act of terrorism.

Phil Gurski is President and CEO of Borealis Threat and Risk Consulting and a former CSIS analyst. He tells Rob Snow not enough information is available yet to say with certainty the allegedly hate-motivated London vehicle attack was an act of terrorism.

Three adults and one teen from the same family were killed in a hit and run on June 6. The family’s nine-year-old boy is in hospital with serious injuries. Police say they appear to have been targeted because of their Islamic faith. A 20-year-old man has been charged with four counts of murder and one count of attempted murder.
