Officers responding to Sunday’s (04 June 2017) London Bridge terror attack fired 50 shots at three attackers to ”
ensure they were neutralized.”  Mark Rowley, assistant commissioner for specialized operations in the Metropolitan Police Service, told CNN that the suicide belts were fake, “deliberately used to ensure they would be killed.”

Here’s the analysis from CNN Correspondents James Masters and Steve George:

“Seven people died and 48 were injured when three men drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge before leaping out and launching a stabbing spree in nearby bars and restaurants.
The ISIS-linked Amaq Agency claimed a “detachment of Islamic State fighters” carried out the attack, but CNN terrorism analyst Paul Cruickshank cautioned that ISIS has provided no evidence to back up its claim. Amaq also claimed ISIS was behind the attack at a resort in Manila last week, despite Filipino authorities asserting it was not terror-related.
British Prime Minister Theresa May claimed there was “too much tolerance” of Islamist extremism in the United Kingdom as she vowed a clampdown in the wake of the third terror attack to hit the UK this year.”
