UK threat level raised to “Severe” following “Islamist” attack by gunman in Vienna

Published on November 4, 2020 by

14 people have been arrested in connection with a series of shootings in the Austrian capital Vienna that left four people dead.

22 others were injured when a gunman, described as an “Islamist terrorist” by the authorities, fired into crowds of people at six different locations.

In the UK the security threat level has been raised from ‘substantial’ to ‘severe’ which means an attack is thought to be highly likely.
