Vastavam web: The people of London is shattered after a terror attack occurred in wee hours. This is the second attack in the past two weeks and around seven people were either knocked down with truck or neck sliced with knives.
Police in London were dealing with what appeared to be a coordinated terrorist attack on at least two locations late Saturday night, after a van mowed down pedestrians on London Bridge and knife attacks were reported at two nearby restaurants. Eyewitnesses reported panic as the incidents unfolded in the vicinity of a major transport hub and in an area packed with restaurants and bars. The London Ambulance Service said at least 20 people were taken to six hospitals. The attacks came days before a general election and two weeks after 22 people were killed when a suicide bomber targeted an Ariana grande in Manchester.
It was the third terrorist attack to strike the United Kingdom this year, after a man drove a car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in March. British Prime Minister Theresa May said authorities were dealing with a “terrible incident” and London’s Metropolitan Police Service said incidents at London Bridge and nearby Borough Market were being treated as terrorism. London Mayor Sadiq Khan said it was “deliberate and cowardly attack” on Londoners enjoying a Saturday night out.
