London Bridge terrorists died in hail of police bullets


British police said they were dealing with "incidents" on London Bridge and nearby Borough Market in the heart of the British capital Saturday, as witnesses reported a vehicle veering off the road and hitting several pedestrians.

The Manchester bombing on May 22 was the deadliest attack in Britain since July 2005, when four British Muslim suicide bombers killed 52 people in coordinated attacks on London's transport network.

The Ministry said the High Commission in London was in touch with Mr Dowling's family and was providing consular assistance.

The Prime Minister cut police manpower by 20,000 despite warnings that this would undermine safety, said Mr Corbyn, who has promised to recruit an additional 10,000 officers and 1,000 security service agents if he wins power on June 8.

Mark Rowley, head of counter-terrorism police, said eight officers had fired about 50 bullets to stop the attackers, who appeared to be suicide bombers because they were wearing what turned out to be fake suicide vests.

"The recent attacks are not connected but we believe we are experiencing a new trend in the threat we face", she said after chairing a meeting of the government's emergency Cobra committee. "The three attackers were shot dead", Asst.

Counter terrorism officers march near the scene of last night's London Bridge terrorist attack on June 4, 2017 in London, England. "Perpetrators are inspired to attack not only on the basis of carefully constructed plots. and not even as lone attackers radicalised online, but by copying one another and often using the crudest of means of attack".

Cordons remained in place around much of London Bridge and Borough Market on Sunday evening, and sources said the area was expected to remain closed on Monday.

Jeremy Corbyn has torn into Theresa May's security record in the wake of the London Bridge attack, accusing her of trying to "protect the public on the cheap".

"When I open the door I see three dead people on the floor", he said.

Among those stabbed was a London Transport Police officer, who was one of the first to respond to emergency calls.

Britain was already on high alert following the recent attack on a concert by United States pop star Ariana Grande in Manchester, northwest England, in which seven children were among the dead.

Grande, who headlined a benefit concert in Manchester on Sunday, alongside stars including Pharrell Williams and Justin Bieber, tweeted that she was "Praying for London". "But we got to move on".

The ruling Conservatives and the main opposition Labour party suspended national campaign events for the day, but May insisted the election would go ahead as planned on Thursday.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued a statement late Saturday saying "At this time, we have no information to indicate a specific, credible terror threat in the United States". "GOD BLESS!" - and highlighting his thwarted ban on travellers from six mainly Muslim countries.

"They went "this is for Allah" and they had a woman on the floor, they were stabbing her", said witness Gerard Vowls.

Attacking people after abandoning the van, they headed to Borough Market where the pubs and restaurants were packed with Saturday night crowds, many watching the Champions League final between Juventus and Real Madrid in Cardiff.

The rampage had harrowing echoes of the attack on Westminster Bridge in March, when British Muslim convert Khalid Masood rammed his vehicle into pedestrians before crashing into the barriers surrounding the parliament building. The attacker was shot dead by police.
