Vigil held for London terror victims
TRIBUTES were paid at a memorial ceremony for victims of the London Bridge terror attack, as the Government said it was reviewing the early release from prison of dozens of convicted terrorists.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and
London Mayor Sadiq Khan all joined a vigil to honour Jack Merritt, 25, and Saskia Jones, 23. They were both killed on Friday when Usman Khan, who was wearing a fake suicide device, went on a knife rampage before being shot dead by armed police.
The memorial event in the
City of London financial district, a short distance from the scene of the attack, involved members of the emergency services and the public.
Mayor Khan told them: “The best way to defeat this hatred is not by turning on one another but by focusing on the values that bind us.”
