UK: Fatal cleaver attack an act of terror

They first hit the man, thought to be a British soldier, with a car in broad daylight. Then the two attackers hacked him to death and dumped his body in the middle of a southeastern London road.

As the victim - dressed in what appeared to be a T-shirt for Help for Heroes, a charity that helps military veterans - lay prone, one of the two attackers found a camera.

"We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you until you leave us alone," said a meat-cleaver-wielding man with bloody hands, speaking in what seems to be a London accent.

British Prime David Cameron called the act a terrorist attack.
