A woman who challenged knife-wielding assailants suspected of hacking to death a British soldier in London on Wednesday said she intervened because "it was better having them (the weapons) aimed on one person". 

Police officers cordon off a road in Woolwich, London, on May 22, 2013, following an attack on a British soldier near a barracks. A woman who challenged knife-wielding assailants suspected of hacking to death a British soldier in London on Wednesday said she intervened because "it was better having them (the weapons) aimed on one person".

Cub scout leader Ingrid Loyau-Kennett, 48, explained in Thursday's Daily Telegraph that one of the men told her they wanted "to start a war in London tonight" when she asked them why they had carried out the attack.
