Nursery worker is left with broken ribs and needing stitches after she was punched and kicked to the ground and slashed with a Stanley knife by three girls shouting 'Allah will get you'And the Beeb won't even report the Allah part.
Karrien Stevens, who runs Little Diamonds Nursery in Hermon Hill, London said a member of staff was punched, kicked and slashed with a 'Stanley knife' while on her way to work this morning.
She was attacked from behind and then stabbed in the arm as her assailants chanted 'Allah', however police are not treating it as a terrorist incident.
The televised interview, which was shared on Twitter, shows a cut at 17 seconds - the point where users suggested Ms Stevens would have gone on to make her comments about Islam.It's not as if this sort of thing is newsworthy. Besides it would just lead to more Islamophobia. If you report that the attackers mentioned, "Allah", people might draw the erroneous conclusion that Islam had something to do with it and that Islam might even promote violence. Best to erase that pesky stuff.
At this point in the clip users say the interview skips, suggesting two pieces of footage were spliced together.
The reason some Twitter users believe that these comments were edited out is because Ms Stevens is quoted in a written BBC Online article saying the women 'shouted out "something to do with Allah and the Koran".'
A BBC spokesman admitted the television clip was edited to fit their news report, but would not confirm which comments made by Ms Stevens were removed from their broadcast.
