Islamic State has claimed responsibility on Sunday night for the deadly attack in the British capital that claimed the lives of seven people and injured scores more.
An Egypt-based ISIS media agency claimed that the terror group masterminded the combined attack in which three terrorists rammed into pedestrians on London Bridge and stabbed passersby in an a nearby street and bar.
The London police is expected to release the details of the attackers in the coming days, and security measures have been increased in the UK, that is still reeling from Saturday night's attack which came less than two weeks after a lethal suicide bombing at a Manchester Arena during a concert by American pop singer Ariana Grande.
