7 people are dead and another 48 injured after Metropolitan Police responded to two terrorist attacks in the British capital of London.
A van was confirmed to have driven into pedestrians on London Bridge, and upon crashing, its three occupants climbed out and began stabbing those nearby, in the neighbourhood of Borough Market.
Armed police were deployed and eliminated the threat within 8 minutes of the first call, killing all 3 attackers in the process.
Among the dead were two French citizens, a Canadian, and an Australian. All three countries expressed their condolences at the news and reaffirmed their commitment and support for the United Kingdom.
