    A 19-year-old man was arrested in Barking outside London in connection to the deadly bridge attack in the British capital that killed eight people.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The UK police investigating the London Bridge terror attack arrested seventh man, suspected on suspicion of being involved in London Bridge terror attack that killed eight civilians, the Metropolitan Police said.

    ​“At 21:50hrs officers from the Met's Counter Terrorism Command, supported by the Territorial Support Group, arrested a 19-year-old man [U] at an address in Barking. He was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism under Section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000,” the police said in a statement published late on Sunday.
