Vigils Held For London Bridge Attack Victims

London, Cambridge host vigils for victims of Friday's stabbing attack.

Twin vigils were held in London and Cambridge for the victims of Friday's stabbing attack, local media reported.
Family and friends of the victims Saskia Jones, 23, and Jack Merritt, 25, attended on Monday a remembrance service in Cambridge University, where both victims had been students, according to Sky-News.
In London, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, and the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan observed a minute of silence with members of the public in the honor of victims.
"The best way to defeat this hatred is not by turning on one another but by focusing on the values that bind us," said Sadiq Khan in his speech.
"London will never be cowered or intimidated by terrorism," he added.
Authorities identified Usman Khan, 28, a "convicted terrorist" who resided in the Staffordshire area, as the attacker.
The attack took place a short distance from Borough Market where a terrorist attack killed seven people and injured 48 others in June 2017. A van mowed down pedestrians on London Bridge and attackers stabbed victims in Borough Market.
Friday's attack came a few weeks after the government lowered the nation's terror threat level. -
