The London Bridge has been closed for three days now. According to NBC News, 7 people died and nearly 50 were injured when a terrorist attack unfolded in the heart of the British capital on Saturday night.  Officials said a vehicle barreled into pedestrians on the London Bridge sending one person flying nearly 20 feet in the air.

The three attackers embarked on a stabbing rampage at nearby Borough Market. In the wake of the attack, British Prime Minister Theresa May said “Things must change” when it comes to counter-terrorism policies. The incident was reported at 10:08 pm (5:08 pm ET) on Saturday, June 3, 2017. Within eight minutes, all of the suspects has been fatally shot by officers, according to authorities. Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said the three men were wearing what appeared to be explosive vests but they turned out to be fake.

Although all three attackers have died the police has recently been able to identify them. The attackers have been identified as Khuram Butt (27), Rachid Redouane (25), and Youssef Zaghba (22). The police have since sustained the scene and are grieving with the families of London. Police said the incident is still under investigation and asked anyone with video or images of the attack to share them with authorities.
