UK police arrest suspect in a stabbing that took place near the British Museum in London


LONDON (AP) — Police in London say they have arrested a man suspected of stabbing another man near the British Museum. The museum known for housing the Rosetta Stone was evacuated Tuesday. But the landmark building reopened later in the day and police say there’s no more risk to the public. Metropolitan Police said the stabbing occurred at a street corner near the museum’s entrance. The victim was taken to the hospital with a stab wound and the suspect was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm. The British Museum was founded in 1753. It’s the world’s oldest public national museum and houses works of history, art and culture.
