    LONDON (AP) — British police said they were dealing with an "incident" on London Bridge Saturday.

    Witnesses reported a vehicle hitting pedestrians and injured people on the ground. One told the BBC a white van veered off the road and struck as many as six people.

    Another witness, Will Heaven, said he saw people who appeared to have been hit, and one being put into an ambulance.

    "We saw injured people on the road, injured people on the pavement," he told Sky News.

    Transport for London said busy London Bridge station was closed at the request of police.

    A van has mounted the pavement on London Bridge before a stabbing attack, according to witnesses.

    Just after 10pm police responded to reports of a vehicle colliding with pedestrians on London Bridge.

    British Transport Police have said there are reports of "multiple casualties" on the bridge.

    Shortly after that, officers said there had been reports of stabbings at Borough Market.

    I was holding off from calling it an Akbar attack but it's looking increasingly likely.

    I'm concerned if isis shows a reasonable presence in Kashmir we would end up having similar attack in our country in no time.

    No travel advisories issued yet-I guess that's only for third world terrorism.

    Yup! It is a disgrace how little value common man in India place on intelligence agencies. They finished Indian Mujaheedin in a couple of years;finished as in uprooted it and salted the earth around it.

    Even MI5/6 and DGSE/DGSI have not been as effective. Either they do not know how to deal with Islamic terrorism ,which we are facing since 1980's, or they are unwilling to do what it takes to kill a homegrown Islamic terror group because doing so would be politically incorrect.

    Edit: Let's be real. Britishers/British media and politicians (condition on ground would be worst,if it is so bad in media which is manned by leftists) do not let any opportunity slide to be a racist bigot against Indians. This has nothing to do with political correctness, and everything to do with courting the Muslim/Pakistani vote. Rotherham ,where Pakistanis did an industrial scale rape of British teenage girls, re-elected Sarah champion in 2015 as MP (same women who was part of covering up that rape marathon), on the back of Pakistani votes.British politicians consider British girls as a Jaziya payment they have to make to horny Pakistani muslims for few parliamentary seats.

    Yes, it is surely a rebel attack by an Islamist 'activist' which is clearly an internal law & order problem. I hope they didn't shoot the knifeman, which would have been a gross human right violation.
