Britain has been witnessing terror attacks ever since its forces sided with United States in fighting Taliban and ISIS in different parts of the world. The country has witnessed at least three terror attacks in 2017 itself. Here’s a brief timeline:
3 June 2017: Six people killed and 40 wounded in two attacks, one on London Bridge and another in the nearby Borough market. Three suspects were shot dead.
22 May: At least 22 people were killed and 116 wounded when a young British suicide bomber detonated a bomb at the Manchester Arena shortly after a concert of American singer Ariana Grande.
22 March: A car veered into pedestrians on the Westminster Bridge near the British Parliament building, killing at least four people and injuring 40 others.
16 June 2016: British opposition Labour Party MP Jo Cox died after being shot and stabbed multiple times in Birstall, West Yorkshire. She became the first incumbent British MP to be killed since 1990.
5 December 2015: A man attacked three people with a knife at the Leytonstone tube station in East London. One of the victims was seriously wounded, and the other two suffered slight injuries.
