I pray for the safety of my friends living in London and it's vicinity as counterterrorism officers take measures to secure the city in this third incident of the year in UK. Thank you to those who have posted safety checks; and I stand together in grief with my UK friends on this senseless act of violence coming on the heels of the Manchester bombing on 22 May 2017 (which was a sophisticated attack that required significant resources and planning by a terror cell). Key Facts for this Attack from BBC =========================== (1) Police confirm more than one fatality after a terror attack on London Bridge and Borough Market on Saturday night (3 June 2017). (2) Speeding van veered into crowds, reports of men attacking members of public with knives. Reports of "multiple" casualties and walking wounded. (3) Another incident in nearby Vauxhall was a stabbing and not connected to the terror attack, say police. (4) Officers understood to be looking for three suspects who may be armed. London Bridge railway station is closed while transport police deal with the incident. Transport for London says the bridge is closed to all traffic. For those interested, there are some old threads on JI and the Jakarta bombings, and Mas Selamat, a JI operative, which are also terrorism related.
