Update: 6 Dead, More Than 50 Injured In London Attack



Six people have been killed and almost 50 people were injured in a "rampage" in central London, the third terrorist attack to hit the UK in less than three months.

Three attackers were shot dead by police in the attack on London Bridge and Borough Market. Police said they believed there were no more than three attackers.

A white transit van ploughed into a crowd of people on the bridge at speed shortly after 10pm. The three men then stabbed people with 12-inch knives at nearby Borough Market, with a transport police officer among those injured.


The London Ambulance Service said 48 people had been taken to five hospitals across the capital and a number of other people were treated at the scene. The Metropolitan Police force declared the attacks "terrorist incidents."

As dawn broke over the capital, a large area on the south bank of the River Thames remained cordoned off and police told people to avoid the area, leaving tourists and revellers struggling to get home.

Bursts of gunfire echoed through the streets - likely from armed police - and at least three blasts rang out as police performed controlled explosions.

One picture from the Borough Market area showed a man lying on the ground with canisters apparently strapped to him. Police later said what the men wore were hoax suicide vests.
