EDL Leader Assaulted by Armed "Asian" with Shotgun
The man said to have carried out the assault is described as an "Asian", which is what the Brits call Pakistanis or Indians. Given that the assault was: a) at the EDL leader's house; b) began with the assailant throwing something at the house in an effort to draw him out, this seems to indicate that this was a deliberate attack and not some random act of violence or failed home invasion.
In fact, it sounds to me more like an attempt to scare the EDL leader into backing off. Which in my mind is an act of terrorism very much along the lines of the terror tactics used by the KKK in trying to suppress desegregationist sentiment.
The BBC, though, is calling it simply "an attack":
Officers were called to Kevin Carroll's home in Bolingbroke Road, Luton, late on Thursday after reports an object was thrown against the window of the house.Logan's Warning has the audio of a BBC interview with the EDL leader here.
Mr Carroll said he went to investigate and saw a man who appeared to be holding a shotgun. No shots were fired.
Also, given that the assailant had a sawed off shotgun, what does this say about gun control laws in the UK?
