Terrorism has hit the heart of London once again in what is the third Jihadist attack on British soil in just 10 weeks.
Armed police swooped on the London Bridge area of the capital city after two incidents, which saw six people killed and dozens injured.
The men, described as being ‘of Mediterranean origin’, mowed down up to 20 people with a white van at 50mph on London Bridge on Saturday night, then began ‘randomly stabbing’ revellers with 12-inch hunting knives.
The London Ambulance Service said that 30 people have been taken to five hospitals across the city – and one of the casualties is reportedly a police officer.
The terrorists also stormed busy pubs and restaurants in the nearby Borough Market, where a man was reportedly stabbed five times in the chest. A ‘dark-skinned’ man in a red tracksuit ‘calmly’ stabbed a man three times, a witness said.
The gang had metal canisters strapped to their chests and two were reportedly shot dead by armed police. A search is underway for the three other men. One man has been arrested on Borough High Street.
It comes just 11 days after the horrific suicide bomb attack at the Manchester Arena, which killed 22 people and injured 119 others.
