Photos: 6 killed, 3 suspects dead after 'terrorist incident' at London Bridge, Borough Market

Six people were killed, three attackers are dead and 48 victims have been transported to hospitals after a "terrorist incident" in London Saturday night involving a vehicle reportedly plowing into pedestrians on London Bridge and reported stabbings at Borough Market, officials said.

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said this is being treated as a "terrorist incident."

"The vehicle continued to drive from London Bridge to Borough Market," Rowley said. "The suspects then left the vehicle and a number of people were stabbed."

Armed officers confronted the three male suspects, who were shot and killed by authorities in Borough Market, Rowley said.

Police said the suspects were wearing hoax explosive vests.

The suspects were confronted and shot by the police within eight minutes of the first call, Rowley added.

BBC reporter Holly Jones, who was on London Bridge at the time of that incident, told the network that several people were hurt after a white van swerved and hit a crowd of people while it was crossing London Bridge.

"A white van driver came speeding -- probably about 50 mph -- veered off the road into the crowds of people who were walking along the pavement," she told BBC News. "He swerved right round me and then hit about five or six people. He hit about two people in front of me and then three behind. I'd say there are about four severely injured people. They all have paramedics assisting them at the moment."
