LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said his thoughts were with those affected by an “appalling incident” in the English town of Reading on Saturday.

British media said several people had been stabbed to death in the incident, though there was no police confirmation of those reports.

Sky said the incident was terrorism.

“My thoughts are with all of those affected by the appalling incident in Reading and my thanks to the emergency services on the scene,” Johnson said in a tweet.
