London Terror Incident Leaves 7 Dead, Dozens Injured
Duel Attacks at London Bridge and Borough Market
Is terror the new normal?
This is the third attack in as many months to strike the UK and the second within London itself.
Prime Minister May stated that while the attacks in Westminster, Manchester and London Bridge were unconnected, they were bound together by the “single evil ideology of Islamist extremism.”
May described the latest attack as “brutal” and said extremism had to be defeated. “We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are,” she said. “Enough is enough.”
Authorities have arrested twelve people during raids since the attack. Their connections to the tragedy have not yet been made clear.
The United Kingdom’s terror alert remains at severe.
