Incidents in UK's Birmingham look to be related: Mayor

LONDON (Reuters) - A number of stabbings in the center of the English city of Birmingham that resulted in injuries on Sunday looked to be related, West Midlands Mayor Andy Street told the BBC.

“There have been a series of incidents in that Hurst Street area of the city, they look to be related but the motivation for them is not yet understood,” he said.

Police in the city declared a “major incident” after reports that a number of people were injured in stabbings early on Sunday.

A witness told the BBC she saw “multiple people having fist fights”.
