Two Killed in Terrorist Attack on London Bridge, Statement from AC Neil Basu

London, UK...Statement from Assistant Commissioner for Specialist Operations Neil Basu following the incident in London Bridge earlier today: "I can confirm that at approximately 2pm today, Friday, 29 November, police were called to a stabbing at a premises near to London Bridge, EC1. "Emergency services attended, including officers from the City of London Police and the Metropolitan Police. "A male suspect was shot by specialist armed officers from City of London Police and I can confirm that this suspect died at the scene.

"A number of other people received injuries during the incident and as soon as we can provide further updates on their condition, we will. Our heartfelt sympathies go out to those anxiously awaiting news from loved ones.

"As you would expect, due to the nature of the incident, we responded as though it was terrorist-related. I am now in a position to confirm that it has been declared a terrorist incident. We are working jointly with the City of London Police as we continue to respond.

"Officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command are now leading this investigation. I must stress, however, that we retain an open mind as to any motive. It would not be appropriate to speculate further at this time.

"Due to reports that the suspect may have had an explosive device, specialist officers also attended the scene and wide cordons are in place to ensure there remains no further danger to the public.

"However, I can confirm that at this time, we believe a device that was strapped to the body of the suspect is a hoax explosive device. Officers continue to carry out meticulous searches in the area to ensure there is no outstanding threat to the public.

"Those extensive cordons will remain in place for a considerable time and I would ask the public please continue to avoid the area.

"Public safety is obviously our top priority and we will be enhancing police patrols in the City and across London.

"I would ask anyone with information, image or footage of the incident that this be shared with our investigation team to do so on the UK Police Image appeal website. I would also ask the public to "continue to remain vigilant and report any concerns they have to police."

+ Anyone with information that could assist with the investigation can call the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321. In an emergency call 999.

Anyone who may have footage or images of the incident is asked to send them to police via:

The NEW Scotland yard huh?

Yea the OLD Scotland yard wouldn't have let this happen Ill tell ya what.

Notice in typical Bay area fashion on the PTN no liberal tree huggers are commenting when terrorists attack and are killed.

But try to have PGE cut down a tree on a property that is owned by a illegal transvestite who supports Elizabeth Warren and you whack jobs come out of the woods on your keyboards..

    The biggest threat in the US are right-wing extremist terror groups. The wanna be dictraitor has opted to cut funding to address this major threat. His incompetent staff are a dirty bunch of white supremacist a-holes.

      Sorry but you are wrong on that one. You must be mistaken with categories. Right-wing is Republican and then there are the right-wing extremists just like the left-wing extremists i.e., Antifa. I'm also sure that our POTUS is carefully watching and learning what is going on with the supremacists. He's also doing the best that he can to "squash" or cripple such movements just like he did when we just snuffed out the big shot callers of ISIS or whatever they call themselves and our troops over there are still being persistent with that as per what our POTUS orders. Hopefully, we will pull out of there soon. You need to learn how the real American Way works. So be patriotic and support our prez. Maybe you should take a class in political science or US History.
