Six people died and at least 40 others were wounded in the terrorist attack in London last night when three attackers drove a vehicle into pedestrians and then ran amok stabbing many people. The attackers, who allegedly shouted “This is for Allah!” were also shot dead by armed British police.
The attack took place in the London Bridge and Borough Market area of the UK’s capital city. Witnesses told how they fled in fear or barricaded themselves into the many bars and restaurants in the area.
ATTACKERS QUICKLY SHOT DEAD
Armed police reacted very quickly confronting the attackers only eight minutes after the alarm was raised.
The terrorists appeared to be wearing explosive vests but these turned out to be fake.
Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May will chair an emergency meeting of her cabinet colleagues (known as a “Cobra” meeting) this morning.
