British security forces reported the arrest of 12 people allegedly linked to the terrorist attack in London Saturday night, which killed seven people and injured 48.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS), also known as Scotland Yard, said that investigations continue into the attack that started when a van hit a group of pedestrians on the London Bridge.

Following that action, three attackers drove the vehicle to an area of bars and restaurants in the nearby town of Borough and they stabbed various people before being killed by police officers in just eight minutes.

The perpetrators of those violent actions carried vests that appeared to be loaded with explosives, which was a false alarm, according to the police spokesperson.

British Prime Minister Theresa May described the attacks as a potential terrorist action and called for an emergency session of the so-called Cobra committee, the highest security body in the country.
