London Bridge stabbings

London's Metropolitan police said Friday that several people were stabbed and one man was shot by officers near the famed London Bridge in what they were treating as a terror-related incident.

One man was detained by police.

Police cautioned that the circumstances surrounding the incident "remain unclear."

London Bridge was the scene of a June 2017 attack when Islamic State-inspired attackers ran down people on the bridge, killing two, before stabbing several people to death in nearby Borough Market.

The BBC reported that its correspondent, John McManus, was at the scene at the time and saw a group fighting on the bridge, with several men attacking one man.
