ISIS claims responsibility for deadly attack on London

Published: Updated:

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the London attacks, which left seven people dead, an online news agency affiliated with the extremist group said on Monday.

A “detachment of fighters from ISIS carried out London attacks yesterday” the Aamaq news agency said, referring to Saturday’s assault which saw three men in a van plough into pedestrians on London Bridge before going on a stabbing spree.

British Prime Minister Theresa May on Sunday blamed “evil Islamist ideology” for the attack, as police said they had arrested 12 suspects

Saturday night’s rampage at a popular nightlife hub around London Bridge by three men wearing fake suicide vests was the third deadly terror attack in Britain in less than three months and came only days before snap elections.

Police shot and killed three attackers minutes after receiving the first emergency call.
