Subscribe
Met Police said on 29 November that a man had stabbed several people near and on London Bridge in the capital of the United Kingdom.

Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu confirmed that the suspect was shot dead on the spot and that the incident has been classified as a terrorist attack. The police believe that a hoax explosive device was attached to the suspect's body, he added. Basu noted that increased police patrols would be deployed on London's streets in the wake of the incident, while cordons would temporarily remain around the site.

Two people died as a result of their injuries and three more are in serious condition in hospital, according to police. Law enforcement has identified the man who perpetrated the attack as 28-year old Usman Khan, convicted in 2012 for terrorism offences and released in December 2018.

According to preliminary evidence, the man attended a meeting on Friday afternoon in London's Fishmonger's Hall. The attack began inside before he left the building and proceeded onto London Bridge.
