A van mowed down pedestrians as it sped down London Bridge in the British capital Saturday night, leaving bodies lying in the roadway, a witness to the incident told CNN.
Also Saturday, two men entered a restaurant at Borough Market, just south of the Bridge, and stabbed two people inside, a witness told CNN on Saturday. The patrons sheltered in the basement and police have arrived at the scene, the witness said.
Seven people died and 48 were injured when three masked men drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge before leaping out and launching a stabbing spree in nearby bars and restaurants.
Police said the three attackers, wearing fake suicide belts to sow further panic, were shot dead within eight minutes of police receiving the first emergency call just after 10 p.m. local time. Authorities announced 12 arrests on Sunday...
• 36 victims were still being treated in London hospitals Sunday, with 21 in a critical condition. • Police carried out raids Sunday morning in Barking, east London, making 12 arrests.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for Saturday's terror attack in London. The Islamic State's news agency Amaq said in a statement Sunday that ISIS "soldiers" carried out the attack.
People are now quick to note that ISIS claims responsibility for everything these days, usually absent any evidence to back such claims up. And I think that's fair and correct to note. To an extent. Because it seems to me that a lack of direct involvement from ISIS doesn't mean ISIS had no role in a given attack.
