The Wall Street Journal: Terror attack near London Bridge leaves seven dead, 48 hospitalized

LONDON—Terrorism struck Britain anew on Saturday night as three knife-wielding men led a deadly rampage through the capital, plowing a van into pedestrians on London Bridge and stabbing multiple people nearby, before being shot dead by police.

Seven people were killed and at least 48 were hospitalized, some in critical condition, in what authorities quickly called terrorism—marking the third attack in the U.K. this year. No group claimed responsibility.

Just eight minutes after police responded to reports of the bridge incident, they confronted the attackers in Borough Market—an upscale bar and restaurant zone near the bridge—killing them in a hail of gunfire.
