Polish PM and Queen Elizabeth thank Pole that stopped terrorist in London

“All weapons are allowed fighting terrorism. Mr. Łukasz, your attitude deserves special thanks and respect. Poland is proud of you! "- wrote Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki on Facebook.

Earlier, Jan Kanthak, a spokesman of the Solidarity Poland party, announced on Twitter that the Minister of Justice would ask the President to consider honoring the Pole with a state decoration.

Also the British Queen Elizabeth II expressed her thanks at a special address after the London bridge attack.

“Prince Philip and I sadly received the news of the terrorist attack on the London Bridge. We send our thoughts, prayers and deep sympathy to all those who lost their loved ones and to all those who were affected by yesterday's terrible violence” - said the British Queen.

“I would like to thank the police and emergency services, as well as those brave people who risked their lives to selflessly help and protect others” added Elizabeth II.

According to The Times on Saturday, one of the people who helped stop the terrorist was a Pole named Łukasz, working in the building where the attack began. Mr Łukasz used a narwhal tusk to stop the offender.

Two people were killed in the attack and three were injured. On Friday night, police reported that the perpetrator was 28-year-old Usman Khan, who had previously been convicted of terrorism-related crimes and paroled from prison last year.
