(Excerpt from Global Times) London was struck by terror on Saturday night yet again. A gang of knife-wielding men drove a van into pedestrians at high speed on the iconic London Bridge before stabbing pedestrians on the street and in bars in the nearby Borough Market area. Seven people have been confirmed killed and at least 20 injured.

The latest terror attacks, occurring less than two weeks after the Manchester Arena bombing, have sent shock waves across the UK and Europe. The UK has invested a lot on anti-terrorism and has made significant effort in helping immigrants to integrate into society and reduce their hatred toward the mainstream. The UK is perceived as being the toughest European country on immigration control, however, it has still been severely impacted by acts of terror, not only becoming a target of terror attacks, but a breeding ground for terrorists.

People receive medial attention in Thrale Street near London Bridge following a terrorist incident.
