London under siege, 6 killed after car and stabbing attack

The city of London came under siege again after assailants ploughed into pedestrians before embarking on a stabbing spree which claimed the lives of no less than six victims.

The incident which occurred close to the Borough Market area saw the attackers’ van plough into unsuspecting pedestrians on London Bridge before the attackers numbering up to three stabbed innocent bystanders.

Reports say the attackers were shot by the police after killing six people, and wounding 30 others in the attack which occurred in a busy area with many restaurants and pubs.

“Armed response officers then responded very quickly and bravely and confronted the three male suspects who were shot and killed on Borough Market,” Mark Rowley, Britain’s top anti-terrorism officer said.

“Sadly, six people have died in addition to the three attackers shot by police,” he added.

The attack is coming about two weeks after a suicide bomb attack at the Manchester Arena on May 22 that killed 22 people and injured dozens of others.
