Re: 6 killed, 3 suspects dead after 'terrorist incident' at London Bridge, Borough Market

Post Neon Knight on Sun 4 Jun - 10:20

BBC reporter Holly Jones, who was on the bridge, said: "A white van driver came speeding - probably about 50mph - veered off the road into the crowds of people who were walking along the pavement. "He swerved right round me and then hit about five or six people."

The vehicle continued to drive to nearby Borough Market, where the suspects got out and stabbed several people in an area crowded with people having an evening out.
Eyewitnesses spoke of attackers targeting people in pubs.

One witness, Gerard, told the BBC: "They were running up shouting, 'This is for Allah.' They stabbed this girl maybe 10 times, 15 times." He said he tried to stop them by throwing bottles, chairs and other items.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed seven people had died and 48 required hospital treatment. In addition, three suspected attackers were shot dead within eight minutes of officers receiving the first incident report. British Transport Police said one of its officers was seriously injured responding to the attack.

Two French citizens are among the injured and one is seriously hurt, according to a statement from the French president's office. Two Australian citizens "have been directly impacted", says the country's Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull . . .

Most political parties have suspended national campaigning ahead of Thursday's general election for the day - apart from UKIP which is to continue its campaign.

US President Donald Trump tweeted: "Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the UK, we will be there - WE ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS!" Mr Trump also called for his travel ban on visitors from six predominantly Muslim countries to be upheld by US courts, where it is being challenged.

Other world leaders have also condemned the attack, including French President Emmanuel Macron who said his country "is more than ever at the side of the United Kingdom".
