LONDON (AP) -- Two U.K. government officials say a brutal attack that left one man dead near a London military barracks appears to have been motivated by radical Islam.

Two men apparently attacked another man near a London barracks Wednesday. Police said he died and the other two were shot by police and taken to separate hospitals.

Two U.K. government officials who had been briefed said the attack seemed to have been ideologically motivated by radical Islam. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about the ongoing investigation.

They said their categorization was not based solely on video footage of what appeared to be one attacker criticizing the British government.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said there are "strong indications" that the attack is related to terror.
