12 arrested as police launch fresh raids in east London

Injured people moved to hospitals after London attack
Counter terrorism police have made two fresh raids on addresses in east London in connection with Saturday's deadly terror attack in London, arresting 12 people, according to The Telegraph. 

The Metropolitan Police said officers entered properties in Newham and Barking on Monday.

Searches were continuing at both addresses, police added.

Residents reported hearing "loud flash bangs and gunshots" in the early hours of Monday morning.

Scotland Yard said seven women and five men aged between 19 and 60 were arrested under the Terrorism Act in Barking on Sunday. A 55-year-old man was later released without charge.

Terrorists brought carnage to the streets of Britain for the second time in as many weeks, killing seven.

Forty-eight people were left in hospital, 21 critically injured.

Pedestrians were mowed down by a van on London Bridge before attackers stabbed a police officer and revelers around Borough Market with 12-inch knives.

ISIS claimed its fighters carried out the attack.

The three men, wearing fake suicide bomb vests, were shot dead by eight officers outside a pub after police opened fire with an "unprecedented" hail of 50 bullets, while a bystander was also shot.

Officers say they know the identities of the men who carried out the attack and will release the names "as soon as operationally possible".
