London Bridge attack – cops shoot three terrorists, no Lankans affected

No reports of any Sri Lankans being affected in London attack, so far, the Foreign Ministry confirmed a short while ago.

Three terrorists wearing stab-proof vests drove a van into pedestrians at 50mph on London Bridge before attacking revellers with hunting knives.

Six people have died and at least 30 have been left wounded following the 10:08pm attack. Staff at a packed pub locked the doors as the gang tried to smash their way in. One man was stabbed five times.

Assistant Commissioner of Met Police Mark Rowley confirmed that all three of the depraved attackers were shot and killed within eight minutes of the first call to emergency services.

A picture taken outside the Wheatsheaf pub in Borough Market shows two of the terrorists lying dead – after being gunned down by cops.

Four explosions – confirmed by police by controlled blasts – were heard outside The Sun offices in London Bridge.
