LONDON — At least 7 people died and 48 others were hospitalised for injuries they had received during an incident involving a vehicle and several stabbings in the London Bridge area of the capital, London police have said.

Armed police forces fatally short three suspects in what potentially seems to be a terrorist attack, London officials have said.

This is the third time in less than three months that the United Kingdom has been struck by a potential terrorist attack.

Armed police responded to reports of a van hitting pedestrians on the London Bridge area, as authorities said they were also attending a reported incident in Vauxhall.
