How the Middle East reported the London attack
The Arabic name of the attacker was enough to grab the attention of most influential newspapers in the Middle East.
The Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry Al-Youm wondered whether the British police and intelligence were supposed to put the attacker under more surveillance. It added: “it is easy to ask such a question after any attack.” Some of Opinion articles discussed the “ bitter fact of ”the impossibility of absolute security implementation anywhere in the world. The Lebanese columnist, Jihad Al-Khazen, wrote in the Saudi newspaper, Al-Sharq Al-awst: “When some people are ready to kill and mutilate even when they are almost certain they will be killed during the operation, then absolute security is impossible.”
