- Story Text: Militants drove a van at high speed into pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing revelers on the street and in bars in the nearby Borough Market area on Saturday night (June 3) in what authorities described as a terrorist attack.
London's ambulance service said it had taken more than 30 people to hospitals across the British capital after the attack which killed six people.
Islamic State earlier on Saturday sent out a call on instant messaging service Telegram urging its followers to launch attacks with trucks, knives and guns against "Crusaders" during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
