Τουλάχιστον 6 άνθρωποι Dead Μετά από 2 ενδεχόμενες τρομοκρατικές επιθέσεις στο Λονδίνο

At Least 6 People Dead After 2 Potential Terror Attacks In London
Police have also killed three suspects.

A car swerved into a crowd on London Bridge and men stabbed people, including an on-duty transport police officer, at the nearby Borough Market on Saturday.




At least six people died in the attack, and at least 30 others have been sent to hospitals across the city, authorities said. Police also fatally shot three suspects.


This is the third time in less than three months that the United Kingdom has been struck by a potential terrorist attack.



The United Kingdom is reeling from violence once again after a vehicle plowed into a crowd of pedestrians on London Bridge and stabbings took place at the nearby Borough Market. The incidents, which killed at least six people, are being investigated as terror attacks, said British Prime Minister Theresa May.


After driving a white van into a crowd on Saturday, the attackers fled the vehicle and began stabbing patrons of the nearby Borough Market, report The Washington Post and Reuters.


Mark Rowley, assistant commissioner for the Metropolitan Police Service, said the suspects appeared to be wearing explosive vests, but police later established they were fake. Officers fatally shot three male suspects.


At least 30 victims have been transported to hospitals in the city, London Ambulance Service reported early Sunday. More people were treated at the scene with “less serious injuries,” the emergency response service said.


An on-duty British Transport Police officer was stabbed during the attack and suffered injuries that were serious but not life-threatening, Rowley said in a statement.


Holly Jones, a reporter for the BBC who was on the bridge at the time of the incident, said the vehicle was traveling at a high speed.

A witness told CNN that they saw a man with a “massive knife” enter a restaurant at Borough Market and stab two people. Borough Market is one of the largest and oldest food markets in London.


Jack Applebee, the owner of Applebee’s Fish Market in Borough Market, said he was smoking outside his restaurant when a woman ran by screaming, “Someone’s running around stabbing people!”


He ran inside his restaurant to warn his 50 or so diners, the Wall Street Journal reported. Seconds later, three attackers appeared outside the business’ windows, wearing belts with “black canisters around their upper torsos,” the publication reported.


“They looked to come in, and for some reason turned to carry on down the street,” Applebee told WSJ.

Authorities confirmed that they also responded to reports of a stabbing in Vauxhall, a residential and commercial area just over 2 miles southwest of London Bridge. They later said the incident was not connected to the attacks on the bridge or at Borough Market.


Saturday marks the third time in less than three months that the U.K. has come under attack. A similar incident happened in April, when Khalid Masood plowed a rented car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before fatally stabbing a police officer. Six people, including Masood, died in the attack. And last month, a suicide bomber killed nearly two dozen people at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.


London Mayor Sadiq Khan called the incident over the weekend “a deliberate, cowardly attack on innocent Londoners and visitors to our city enjoying their Saturday night.”


“I condemn it in the strongest terms,” he added. “There is no justification whatsoever for such barbaric acts.”

The chaos comes just five days before Brits head to the polls for a snap election, in which May will face off against Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.


Corbyn tweeted condolences to those affected by the “brutal and shocking incidents.”

White House press secretary Sean Spicer responded on Saturday evening, confirming on Twitter that U.S. President Donald Trump has been briefed on the incident.


The president appeared to use the unfolding chaos in London as a hook to reissue his internationally condemned call for a travel ban affecting several Muslim-majority nations.


“Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U. K., we will be there,” he also tweeted.
