London Bridge Attack 2019

Shootings and Stabbings on London Bridge

Police in London have declared a possible terror or ‘terror-like’ attack on London Bridge after a man armed with a simple kitchen knife stabbed several people before a group of civilians pinned him to the ground and disarmed him.

The police were then filmed shooting the disarmed man at close range multiple times in the middle of the street. It is likely that the police will have questions to answer regarding this in coming days.

It is not believed that there are any other fatalities at this point.

Armed police also raided a white cargo truck which has driven over the central reservation and was blocking London Bridge.

Questions have also been raised about the man in the tie seen running away form the police holding the kitchen knife after the suspect has been shot. The man can be seen looking back at the police as he runs towards the camera and throws what appears to be a tissue out of his pocket whilst holding a kitchen knife.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.

“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
