Foreign nationals among victims of London terror attacks

05 Juin, 2017, 10:20 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

This is the third attack in Britain in as many months.

Accounts emerged of people trying to barricade themselves in a pub while others tried throwing tables and other objects to fend off the attackers.

"One case has been confirmed and the Australian concerned is in hospital".

The area remained cordoned off and patrolled by armed police and counter-terrorism officers yesterday, with train stations closed. Work to inform the next of kin of the victims is ongoing - this may take some time, as we believe some of these victims are from overseas, 36 people remain in hospital, suffering from a range of injuries - some of which are extremely serious.

The brutal London Bridge and Borough Market attacks are the third terror incident in the United Kingdom in three months. "Ended it giving CPR to innocent victims attacked at London Bridge", he wrote, adding a broken heart emoji.

During Sunday's tweetstorm, Trump stressed an end to political correctness - possibly because Khan declined to mention the term "radical Islam" in a statement to residents. The attacker - who reportedly had a criminal record and may have had connections to violent extremism - was gunned down by a police officer.

Although the attackers were also dead, authorities raced to determine whether they had accomplices, and Prime Minister Theresa May warned that the country faced a new threat from copycat attacks. It veered onto the bridge's footpath and began mowing down pedestrians; some are believed to have jumped or been thrown into the water.

The van swerved into oncoming lanes before hitting a bus stop and coming to a stop, Roberts said. Twenty-three people, including children and adults, were killed, and 119 were injured. "It looked to me that the van was aiming at the people".

His final tweet on Saturday night was one of condolence: "Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U". Prime Minister Theresa May delivered a statement, in which she declared that "things need to change" and enough is enough.

These Are The Victims Of The London Bridge Terror Attack
ISIS has claimed responsibility for a series of attacks in recent years - but police have pushed back in some instances. A witness said she saw a white van veer into people. "But it is time to say 'Enough is enough '".

Police were called at 10.08pm, London metro police assistant commissioner Mark Rowley said. He estimated 100 people were on the bridge at the time, fewer than earlier in the night because it was getting late.

But he said instead of pushing for a travel ban, more should be done to bridge the gap between the government and the people in nations across the world. "As I was thinking ... which direction should I run, the van swerved across the other side of the bridge from me". They then exited the vehicle and used knives to attack members of the public in Borough Market.

Those present at the scene of the attack battled the attackers with chairs, crates and beer glasses, some shouting, in a bid to distract them, "Oi!"

"A man suddenly appeared in the restaurant with a massive knife ..."

He further said that the investigation team is taking statements from hundreds of witnesses and again appealed anyone with information or footage of the incident to contact police. Officers searching for the attackers went through bars and restaurants as staff and customers hid.

Neighbors at the site of one raid in Barking said a man who lived there resembled one of the attackers shown in news photographs. After a brief pause, the men continued down the street, at which point Applebee and a colleague pulled down the shutters. Police escorted them out 30 minutes later. Armed police came in.

Hours later, several controlled explosions were heard around the London Bridge area. "The suspects had been confronted and shot by the police within eight minutes of the first call". In May, 22-year-old Salman Ramadan Abedi carried out a suicide bombing at Manchester Arena following an Ariana Grande concert.

"Perpetrators are inspired to attack not only on the basis of carefully constructed plots. and not even as lone attackers radicalized online, but by copying one another and often using the crudest of means of attack".
