Survivors Of The London Bridge Terror Attack Recover From Brutal Injuries

Posted June 05, 2017

"The church of England sent out a message this morning quoting from the book of John where they said 'the light shines in the darkness and the darkness will not overcome it.' A clear message that the church is going to be as strong and as vibrant as ever", said Bloom. "They were stabbing her", witness Gerard Vowls said. "We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are".

It's the third attack this year that ISIS has claimed in Britain, after the bombing in Manchester and a similar attack in the heart of London in March.

London resident Dee, 26, said she was sure it was a terror attack as the van careered southward over London Bridge.

The US president once again let diplomatic niceties fall by the wayside as he criticised Khan, a Muslim with whom he had already developed a tense relationship, for seeking to reassure Londoners, and other Britons, after the attack, although he took the mayor's remarks out of context.

"He swerved towards me and screamed "please run, you've got to run now, get back, get back", she said.

Medics treated the injured near the market as shocked people cried and shouted around them.

One victims of the London Bridge attack was named on Sunday by her family as Canadian Christine Archibald. The vehicle then proceeded to Borough Market where three men exited the vehicle and carried out multiple stabbings.

They then emerged and attacked some of the people they had hit with the van before heading to Borough Market, where the pubs and restaurants were packed with Saturday night crowds, including many watching the Champions League final between Juventus and Real Madrid in Cardiff.

"At this time", an official statement said, "we have no information to indicate a specific, credible terror threat in the United States" as a result of the London attack. Holly Jones, a BBC reporter who was on the bridge at the time of the attack, said it appeared the vehicle was driving "about 50 miles per hour" before striking the pedestrians.

Dozens of stunned people left the area with their hands on their heads as heavily armed police fanned across the crowded capital.

Giving an update on the investigation outside New Scotland Yard, the Met's assistant commissioner Mark Rowley said "significant progress" had been made in identifying the attackers. The British Transport Police said one of their officers, among the first to arrive, took the attackers on armed only with his baton and was seriously wounded. I thought if I throw bottles or chairs they can come after me.

Stacie Richardson and James Bend, both 19, say there were shaken after the May 22 attack at Manchester Arena.

"People flee a terrorist attack LIKE LONDONERS #LoveLondon" wrote another.

"I heard a woman screaming and 20 officers with guns - there was a sniper across the road trained on the window", she said.

"There was a auto with a loudspeaker saying "go, go" and they [police] threw a grenade. and then I ran", he said.
