A stabbing attack on London Bridge has now resulted in two deaths.
A man wearing a fake explosive vest stabbed several passersby near the bridge before others tackled him and he was then shot and killed by police who are calling it a terrorist incident.
”Due to the nature of the incident we responded as though this was terrorist-related. I’m now in a position to confirm that this was a terrorist incident,” stated Metropolitan Police assistant commissioner Neil Basu.
”I must stress, we retain an open mind as to any motive.”
Mayor Sadiq Khan has a message for residents and terrorists.
”We must — and we will — stay resolute in our determination to stand strong and united in the face of terror. Those who seek to attack us and divide us will never succeed,” vowed Khan.
In June 2017, London Bridge was the scene of an attack by ISIS-inspired attackers who ran down people on the bridge, killing two, before stabbing several to death in nearby Borough Market.
Later in the day, three people were wounded in a stabbing in the heart of The Hague’s shopping district … crowded with Black Friday bargain hunters.
Dutch police are looking for a man between 45 and 50 and say it’s too early to know if this was terror related.
