Seven people were killed in an attack on a popular London nightlife spot as terrorism struck Britain for the second time in as many weeks, just days before a national election.

A van swerved into Saturday-night crowds on London Bridge, before three men got out and went on a stabbing rampage through nearby bars. Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said seven members of the public and the three attackers had been killed, while 48 people had been injured.
