Sydney stabbing: Brits hailed as heroes for restraining suspect

Three British men are being hailed as heroes after helping to physically restrain a knife-wielding man Tuesday in Sydney.

The man with a history of mental illness is suspected of slaying a woman in a downtown Sydney apartment with a butcher's knife before wounding another woman nearby and attempting to stab other people while yelling "Allahu akbar," or "God is great," police and witnesses said.
