Six People Believed Injured in Suspected London Acid Attack

LONDON—Six people were believed to have been injured on Saturday after a group of males reportedly sprayed a noxious substance in an area around a large shopping center in east London, police said.

The incident near the Westfield shopping center in Stratford was not being treated as terror-related, a police spokesman said.

“A number of people have been reported injured at different locations – believed to be six people. We await further details,” London‘s Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

One male was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm, the statement said.
