London Bridge Attack: 21 In Critical Condition

June 05, 2017

The terrorist attack that happened in London on Saturday evening has left 7 people dead and 21 people in critical condition.

The attack occurred on the city’s famous London Bridge on Saturday evening, when a van plowed into pedestrians on the bridge. It is believed that there were three men in the van.

According to police reports, the three assailants climbed out of the van after crashing into a railing outside a popular pub close to the Borough market in the heart of the city.

They then charged into various restaurants and pubs and started stabbing people at random.

Hundreds of people ran through the streets trying to get to safety, while others hid in the restaurants and pubs. Some people even tried to fight off the attackers by throwing tables and chairs at them.

London police were called to the scene at approximately 22:07, after which they shot and killed the three suspects a mere eight minutes after the attack started.

This latest attack, which wounded a total of 48 people, comes only two weeks after the suicide bombing at an Ariana grande concert in Manchester on May 22nd. It is the third terror attack in the UK in three months.

British Primer Minister, Theresa May, has said that the government will have to review their counter-terrorism strategy following Saturday’s attack.

London’s Metro Police announced on Sunday that they have arrested 12 people in the suburb of Barking.

According to the police report, they arrested 6 men and 6 women. They also confirmed that one of the men has since been released without charge.

Police said that they were working as fast as possible to release the identities of the 3 attackers to the public, but that their identities are known to the police.

ISIS has allegedly claimed responsibility for the attack.
