It was another deadly attack in London, England as a 28-year-old man, known to authorities went on a rampage in broad daylight on the London bridge.
“It had previously been speculated that the attack may have been revenge for the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Khan was shot and killed by armed police after he stabbed two people to death and wounded three others while wearing a fake suicide vest on London Bridge.
The attacker, who was jailed in 2012 for his role in an al Qaeda-inspired terror group that plotted to bomb the London Stock Exchange, had first been tackled and disarmed by a group of brave bystanders on the bridge.” November 30 – The Daily Mail
