A man was taken to hospital after being stabbed Thursday outside Britain´s Home Office interior ministry in London.
One man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of grievous bodily harm, the city´s Metropolitan Police said.
The Home Office is responsible for tackling crime and the government has recently launched a campaign to deter people from carrying blades in a bid to combat a surge in knife crime.
Police said they were called at 1:06 pm (1206 GMT) following a report of a man with a knife. —AFP
