Saturday night at 10:08 local time a van plowed down civilians on London bridge. At least 7 people were hit and killed and numerous are injured. 3 perpetrators then exited the van at the south end of London Bridge with fake suicide vests and began to attack people with hunting knives. At nearby Borough market a witness stated that they stabbed a waitress in the neck and a man in the back before fleeing the scene when they came into contact with police. There are multiple reports of random stabbings along the street as they fled. All 3 suspects were then shot and killed by the police in the following 8 minutes. Their identities are unknown. British Prime Minister Theresa May said the “Incident in London is being treated as a potential act of terrorism.” There has since been action in finding the remainder of the terror cell in London. Metropolitan Police confirm 12 people have been arrested in connection with this attack.

There are a lot of unknowns in this situation, please stay tuned for any updates.
