Two attacks in London on Saturday night have shaken Britain once again. Police said six civilians have been killed and London Ambulance Service confirmed thirty injured have been taken to five hospitals.
Police added the total number of assailants is believed to be three and all of them have been killed.
A van careered onto the sidewalk along the London Bridge and pedestrians were mowed. One of the attackers jumped out of the vehicle with a knife and ran into the nearby Borough Market.
The attack was immediately responded by heavily armed police at around 10 p.m. to the bridge and some rushed to the market, which is a popular spot equipped with restaurants and pubs.
Police said all the three attackers wore canisters around the chests.
No terror group has yet claimed responsibility of the attacks, but the country is still reeling from the recent Manchester bombing shock that killed 21 people including children.
The London Bridge attack was similar to the Westminster Bridge attack of March 22 that killed four people and a police officer.
Britain is currently preparing for national elections and attacks just ahead of it raise questions upon security.
This is the Islamic holy month of Ramadan and messaging app Telegram is being used by the terror group to urge Muslims attack Western societies with guns, vehicles and knives.
