British police on Friday (November 29) shot dead a man who had strapped a fake bomb to his body and stabbed a number of people in what they said was a terrorismincident in the London Bridge area of the capital.

Police said they had been alerted at just before 2 p.m. to a stabbing at a premises near London Bridge, the scene of a deadly attack by Islamist militants two years ago.

A male suspect was shot was specialist armed officers and died at the scene, the United Kingdom’s top counter-terrorism officer, Neil Basu said.

A number of other people were injured in the incident which has now been declared a terrorist incident.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson was on his way back to Downing Street and Basu said he would be giving him a full briefing.

London Bridge was the scene of an attack in June 2017 when three militants drove a van into pedestrians and then attacked people in the surrounding area, killing eight people and injuring at least 48.
