Multiple casualties in central London attack

According to the Scotland Yard, about six people are reportedly killed in an attack in central London where three assailants were shot dead by authorities.

A white van hit several pedestrians on London Bridge just after 2200 hours local time. Three men left the vehicle and stabbed numerous people in Borough Market, south of the bridge. Armed officers confronted and killed the suspects eight minutes later.

Prime Minister Theresa May described the incidents as "dreadful events" while London Mayor Sadiq Khan called it "a deliberate and cowardly attack on innocent Londoners."

United Kingdom has witnessed terrorist attacks this year. First, there was the attack near the parliament where five people killed when a car was driven at pedestrians on Westminster Bridge and a police officer was stabbed outside Parliament, then there's the suicide attack at a concert in Manchester that killed 22 people including children.
