Six people have been killed in a terror attack near London Bridge in which three attackers were shot dead by police.

The assault began Saturday night when a van veered off the road and barreled into pedestrians on London Bridge. Three men fled the van with large knives and attacked people at bars and restaurants in nearby Borough Market.

Armed police rushed to the scene and shot dead the three attackers in the Borough Market area near the bridge.

More than 48 victims were treated at London hospitals and a number of others suffered less serious injuries.

The attacks come less than two weeks after a suicide bomber killed 22 people at a pop concert by US singer Ariana Grande in Manchester and days ahead of the United Kingdom general election of 2017 on June 8.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
