The London police treated the knife attack with several casualties on the London Bridge like a terrorist attack. This was announced by Scotland Yard. However, the circumstances are still unclear. A suspect had been shot dead at the scene. A number of people suffered stab wounds.
The bridge and surrounding area were cordoned off. Passersby were asked to follow the instructions of the security forces. London Bridge is a major transportation hub with a busy train station. Videos on the internet showed how many people were trying to leave the bridge and surrounding area in panic.
