Incident in Wales
Adolescent dies after knife attack
In the south of Wales, police and emergency services have to deploy on a large scale. According to media reports, several people are injured in a knife attack. A few hours later it is clear: for a 16-year-old, any help comes too late.
A 16 year old girl was killed in an incident in a village in Wales. The media had initially reported a knife attack. The police did not want to comment on the course of the incident. The cause of death of the young people was unclear, it said in a message.
Two men were arrested in connection with the events. They were taken to hospital for treatment for their serious injuries, the police said. There are no other parties involved. The investigators ruled out a terrorist background.
The event is said to have taken place in a small village in the south of the British part of the country, in the county of Rhondda Cynon Taf. Wales Prime Minister Mark Drakeford expressed concern on Twitter. The reports of the incident were “deeply worrying,” he wrote.
