An eyewitness has told BBC that the men stabbing people on the London Bridge shouted “This is for Allah” while they committed acts of terror.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed mere hours after the incidents hit in London Bridge and Borough Market that the attacks were indeed terrorist attacks, and this eyewitness report, if confirmed, shows that the events of Saturday evening are Islamic in nature.

According to the eyewitness, a van veered off the road and began driving on the pavement, hitting pedestrians along the way, and during the attack, the van stopped.

Three men jumped out and started stabbing people, shouting “This is for Allah.”

“They literally just started kicking them, punching them, they took out knives. It was a rampage really,” the eyewitness said.

“Throughout the whole way across the bridge, there were people littered across bleeding,” he added. “People were trying to help each other.”
