    Police forensic officers work in Russell Square in London early on August 4, 2016, after a woman in her 60s was killed during a knife attack. The woman was killed and five people injured in a knife attack in central London late on August 3 which police said they are investigating for possible terrorist links.

    Police in London have a man in custody after he went on a rampage Wednesday night with a knife — killing a woman and injuring as many as six others, NBC News reported. 

    The suspect was described as a 19-year-old man who was under police guard in a hospital. They are calling the incident a possible terrorist attack.

    [NATL] New 'Soundwave' Tattoos Can Talk, Play Music

    What if tattoos could talk? That's what Nate Siggard, CEO and founder of Skin Motion, is trying to do with his soundwave tattoo app. It works like this: users can upload sounds and voices to the app, creating a waveform of the audio. They can print out these waveforms and have them turned into tattoos. They can point their mobile phone or tablet device at the tattoo and use the app to play back the sound.

    "Terrorism is one possibility being explored at this stage," police said, adding that extra officers remain in the area as a precaution. 

    The Metropolitan Police said the man was arrested about 10:40 p.m. (5:40 p.m. ET) after he was brought down with a Taser in Russell Square, near the British Museum.
