Twelve Arrested After Attacks in London

This sounds familiar:

Twelve people have been arrested after the London terror attack which left seven people dead and 48 injured.

The arrests in Barking, east London, followed a raid at a flat belonging to one of the three attackers.

A van hit pedestrians on London Bridge at 21:58 BST on Saturday. Three men then got out and stabbed people in nearby Borough Market.

The attackers were shot dead by eight officers who fired 50 bullets. A member of the public was accidentally shot.

Of the 12 people who were arrested, seven are women. A 55-year-old man was later released without charge.


Update: oh, it seems that I was right:

One of the three jihadists who murdered revellers in central London on Saturday had been reported to the anti-terror police on at least two occasions, it has been claimed.

A former friend of the terrorist, who was shot dead by police along with two accomplices, claimed he had been radicalised while watching YouTube videos and said he contacted the authorities ­after becoming concerned over his friend’s extremist views.

A neighbour also claimed she had contacted police in Barking, east London, after the suspect tried to convert her children to Islam and radicalise them. The man is not being named at the request of the police.

    Rather like trying to empty a huge lake with an eyedropper. Only one drop and this is supposed to be reassuring.

    Yea 12 arrests, but not one a politician or EU unelected official. You know, those responsible for the whole mess. That’s what needs to be done to get control of this nonsense.

      Theresa May was personally responsible for security and counter terrorism for years. She could not bend over enough for Muslim psychopaths

        Queen Theresa learned the two faced basic principles of the vote whoring trade from the best in the business. On the other hand, exceptional leadership ability in times of crisis after crisis is a very much rarer quality which few will ever possess.
