Jihadi terrorists shouting 'this is for Allah' kill seven in knife frenzy
Photographs from the Daily Mail and descriptions of incidents which are less measured than other sources. I can only find reports of two fatalities elsewhere. I do hope the lower figure is correct.
Five jihadi terrorists shouting 'this is for Allah' have reportedly killed seven people and left dozens more injured in a horrific rampage around two locations in central London.
The men, described as being 'of Mediterranean origin', mowed down up to 20 people with a white van at 50mph on London Bridge on Saturday night, then began 'randomly stabbing' revellers with 12-inch hunting knives.
One person has been killed at London Bridge - and one of the casualties is reportedly a police officer.
The terrorists also stormed into a busy pub in the nearby Borough Market, where a man was reportedly stabbed five times in the chest. A 'dark-skinned' man in a red tracksuit 'calmly' stabbed a man three times, a witness said.
The gang had metal canisters strapped to their chests and two were reportedly shot dead by armed police, witnesses said. A search is underway for the three other men. One man has been arrested on Borough High Street.
The Mirror also reports that some victims were stabbed about the throat.
Alex Shellum was in The Mudlark pub, close to London Bridge, at around 10pm when a woman in her early 20s "staggered into the pub".
"She was bleeding heavily from the neck and from her mouth," he told BBC News."It appeared to myself and to my friends that her throat had been cut. People went to her aid."He said the pub was then closed and armed police told them to leave the area.
