London | Police arrested 12 people Sunday and intensive searches were underway after a rampage at the iconic London Bridge and a nearby market left seven people dead and dozens more injured.
Three suspected terrorists also were killed in Saturday night’s attack, the third in Britain in less than three months.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. Eyewitnesses said they heard the men shout “this is for Allah,” British media reported.
Police said a van plowed into pedestrians on London Bridge, then drove to the nearby Borough Market where the assailants went on a stabbing rampage. Armed officers confronted three suspects, who police said were wearing “hoax” suicide vests, at the market. All three were shot dead.
