London Bridge Attack: 7 Killed, 48 Wounded; 3 Suspects Shot Dead by Police

SHARE:

LONDON — Seven people died and nearly 50 were injured when a terrorist attack unfolded in the heart of the British capital on Saturday night.

Officials said a vehicle barreled into pedestrians on London Bridge, and then three attackers embarked on a stabbing rampage at nearby Borough Market.

In the wake of the attack, British Prime Minister Theresa May said "things must change" when it comes to counter-terrorism policies.

"We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are," she told reporters outside her official residence on Sunday. "There is — to be frank — far too much tolerance of extremism in our country."

The incident was reported at 10:08 p.m. (5:08 p.m. ET) on Saturday. Within eight minutes, all of the suspects had been fatally shot by officers, according to authorities.

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said the three men were wearing what appeared to be explosive vests but they turned out to be fake.

He added that all of the attackers were believed to have been killed but added that it was early in the investigation.

One of the those stabbed was a British Transport Police officer, who suffered serious but non-life threatening wounds. Forty-eight people were taken to hospitals in London, the ambulance service said.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan described the incident as a "horrific terrorist attack," adding: "My message to Londoners ... is to be calm and vigilant today."

When asked whether elections planned for Thursday should be postponed, Khan said "I'm not an advocate of postponing the election."

"One of the things these terrorists hate is voting," he said Sunday morning. "They hate democracy, they hate elections and the public choosing who should be our leaders

The ruling Conservative and the Labour opposition parties both announced they were suspending campaigning in the wake of the incident.

Gerard Vowls, 47, described witnessing people being stabbed, seeing blood, and realizing it wasn't a "joke."

He said: "I was going, 'Everybody, run — they're terrorists! terrorists! they're killing everybody!' and they're going, 'This is for Allah,' and they're just running around."

The attacks on London Bridge and at the market come two months after a driver plowed into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in what authorities have called a terror attack, and almost two weeks after a deadly suicide bombing outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.

Fabio Lamas was working at the Wheatsheaf Pub in Borough Market when he said he heard someone shout "knives, knives, knives" and he saw three people holding knives who appeared to be wearing body armor outside. A man moved to block the door, and people inside heard shooting outside, Lamas said.

Witnesses at another Borough Market restaurant said an attacker entered and stabbed a woman, and its manager and others threw bottles at the men and staff pushed them out outside using a bar stool.

Video posted on social media showed diners at one restaurant hiding in a cellar.

"I hear maybe six to eight gunshots and screams unlike I've ever heard before. People running — I've never ran so fast in my life," Joe Dillon, an American grad student at Kings College, told MSNBC. "I ran and I hid."

Railway worker Matt Cooper said he was going out for a coffee near Borough Market and "I saw loads of people running towards me and I heard gunfire." He said he heard about 12 shots. Police told everyone to run.

Two nearby hospitals were locked down to protect patients and staff.

President Donald Trump said on Twitter: "Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U. K., we will be there."

The State Department condemned the "cowardly attacks targeting innocent civilians" and said the U.S. stood ready to "provide any assistance authorities in the United Kingdom may request."

The statement added: "Our hearts are with the families and loved ones of the victims. We wish a full and quick recovery to those injured in the attacks. All Americans stand in solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom."

The State Department also encouraged Americans in the United Kingdom to contact family members. Police initially said a third incident was reported in Vauxhall, but later said it was an unrelated stabbing.
