Just after 1:30 am London time, three explosions rang out near in the London Bridge area of London. This follows an attack that happened just a few hours earlier at 10:00 pm when a van plowed into pedestrians on the London Bridge and the passengers jumped out stabbing victims with knives. The attackers attempted to force their way into the locked down Wheatsheaf pub, where a witness said he saw an attacker stab a man five times in the chest.
A restaurant was also attacked. Witnesses say it was complete chaos and pandemonium.
Jag Sandue said:
“There were people throwing chairs and glasses outside and I thought it might just be a fight.
“Then I realized it was more than that, people were running.
“Next thing we know, they’re in our restaurant. People were screaming ‘they’ve got knives’.”
While the police have stated that this is terrorism, there is no conclusive evidence at this time that this was Islamic Terror related. However, witnesses claimed that the attackers yelled, “This is for Allah,” as he began his rampage.
At least two attackers were gunned down by police, but at least another two were still on the run.
President Trump following the attack tweeted:
Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U. K., we will be there – WE ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS!
