Two muslim (apparently) guy attacked a serving soldier wearing a 'Help for Heroes' t-shirt just randomly in the street it seems. Apparently beheading him and dragging him into the road.
While the police were on their way, it seems the attackers were shouting "Allahu Akbar" and asking pedestrians to take pictures.

Live coverage at that link

As it stands, a soldier has been attacked and beheaded with a machete by two people. At least one was armed with a gun as well. The attackers stayed with the body, dragged it in to the road and asked passers by to take photos.

Police arrived, shot at least 1 of the attackers and that is where we stand I think.

But yeah... they say it was terrorism. One dude who saw it claimed they acted like they were "on something"

Speculation of it being an Islamic attack is rife as well. However an eye witness was tweeting about it being 2 black guys.

Doesn't rule it out, but seems dodgy. Other reports that the attackers shouted Allahu Akbar and the like, but that sounds like shit to me.

Yeah, people should wait and check facts before making assumptions.
Already seeing loads of islamaphobic discussion as a result of this event (granted... was on the chan so doesn't really count)

It's a trap.

Seriously this is messed up. But I think we should wait a while before discussing it because rumors, speculation blah blah blah suspects blah blah

That he got beheaded makes me think it's more likely to be religiously motivated because they do lean towards the old school.

Beheading soldiers somewhat fits the profile of an Islamically infused attack.

I think they (he? I can't tell if there's two attackers or just the one) ran him over, got out the car and butchered him. That's what I read elsewhere

What? Why? Who cares what psychopaths are asking for, if it increases the chances that shit can get done to put these people away then appease the psychopath for five seconds by all means.
