A knife attacker slashed a man at an east London metro station, reportedly screaming "this is for Syria", in what police described as a terrorist incident, prompting the government to urge Britons Sunday not to be intimidated by the attack.An eyewitness quoted by The Guardian and other British newspapers said the attacker appeared to claim that he was retaliating for Western air strikes on Islamist militants in Syria.Britain is on its second-highest alert level of "severe", meaning a militant attack is considered highly likely, mainly because of the threat posed by ISIS militants in Syria and Iraq who are encouraging supporters to attack the West.Prime Minister David Cameron won parliamentary approval to bomb ISIS in Syria after the group claimed responsibility for the attacks on Paris last month that killed 130 people. An eyewitness to the knife attack was quoted as saying the attacker had screamed about Syria.
