The suspect detained over the murder of three people and the serious wounding of three more in Reading last night has been named as Libyan national Khairi Saadallah.
Last year, Saadallah appeared in court charged with punching a Sainsburys security guard in the face and attempting to stab him with a broken wine bottle when he was accused of shoplifting alcohol.
The BBC falsely linked yesterday’s Reading attacks with a local ‘Black Lives Matter’ protest when news of the murders first broke. Right-wing hate-promoters have continued to spread the fake news. Police are treating the incident as terrorism.
