According to preliminary reports, «around 20 police vehicles, armed officers, sniffer dogs and riot shields» have flooded the centre of the Scottish city to respond to an ongoing incident. According to Sky News, there are multiple victims as a result of the knife attack.

A «Serious police incident» took place in central Glasgow on Friday, Glasgow City Council’s Traffic Control and Management team (TRAFFCOM) stated.

The British media is reporting, citing witnesses, that «multiple» people may have been stabbed in a knife attack in broad daylight. The BBC has reported at least three fatalities, but there is no official confirmation so far.

 Police have confirmed the incident, stressing that the situation has been contained and «there is no danger to the general public», but haven’t provided details on the matter.

 ​The news comes after a brutal knife attack in Reading, England last week. Khairi Saadallah, a Libyan refugee, was arrested as a suspect in what is now considered to be a terror incident. According to The Guardian, he was previously known to security services and allegedly spent some time in prison for a series of minor offences not linked to terrorism.
