Terror hits UK again
Police in Britain say they’ve arrested 12 people in connection with Saturday’s terrorist attack in London. They say the investigation is progressing rapidly. Attackers drove a van off the road on London Bridge late Saturday night and plowed into people on the sidewalk. They then left the vehicle and began stabbing people in the nearby Borough Market. Seven people were killed. Nearly 50 others were injured. Police say they shot three attackers dead. British Prime Minister Theresa May held an emergency security* meeting Sunday morning. She later said this is the third terror attack Britain has experienced in three months, and something has to change.
