The three knife-wielding assailants drove a hired van into pedestrians on the bridge and stabbed others in Borough Market in an attack initially praised and subsequently claimed by the Daesh Takfiri group.

It took 11 days for the historic market to open again after the attack.

A minute’s silence for the victims was observed by traders, shoppers, police and political figures, who gathered at the site Wednesday for the reopening.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan said there were “mixed feelings” at the market.
