— Three terrorists have killed six people and left dozens more injured in the horrific rampage
Three Jihadi terrorists have been shot dead by armed police after killing six people and injuring 30 more during a horrific knife rampage in central London last night.
The men, described as being ‘of Mediterranean origin’, shouted ‘this is for Allah’ after they mowed down up to 20 revellers in a white van hurtling across London Bridge at 50mph on Saturday.
Attackers stabbed a police officer on the bridge and then attacked revellers with 12-inch hunting knives at busy bars and restaurants in the nearby Borough Market, in what authorities described as terrorist incidents. One man was reportedly stabbed five times in the chest.
Witnesses said the gang, who had metal canisters strapped to their chests, smashed pub windows and reportedly cut the throats of drinkers, while a ‘dark-skinned’ man in a red tracksuit ‘calmly’ stabbed a man three times.
The male suspects were shot and killed by armed police in Borough Market within eight minutes of the first call. The attackers were wearing suicide vests, which turned out to be a ‘hoaxes’, police said.
Armed police rushed to the scene where shots were heard and authorities urged panicked Londoners on Twitter to ‘run, hide, tell’ if they were caught in the ‘utter chaos’.
Pictures have appeared to show two bodies, said to be the London Bridge attackers, laying on the ground.
Witnesses said they had been told by police the two men were dead and one appeared to have white packages strapped to his body.
One of the men suspected of being behind the deadly attack was shown in a photograph lying on the ground with canisters strapped to his body after he was shot by the police, the BBC said.
Police confirmed that the vests were in fact fake.
The possible attacker was shown on the ground outside the Wheatsheaf pub in Borough Market near London Bridge.
