Trump offers condolences to UK for London knife attack


U.S. President Donald Trump offered condolences Saturday to the U.K. for a deadly knife attack in London.

Trump spoke to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson via telephone, said White House spokesman Judd Deere in a statement.

“The two leaders look forward to meeting with one another at the upcoming NATO Leaders Meeting in the UK,” said Deere.

Authorities identified Usman Khan, 28, a “convicted terrorist” who resided in the Staffordshire area, as being behind the London Bridge attack that claimed two lives and injured three others Friday.

The attack took place near Borough Market where a terrorist attack killed seven people and injured 48 others in June 2017. A van mowed down pedestrians on London Bridge and attackers stabbed victims in Borough Market. They wore fake suicide jackets.

Friday’s attack came a few weeks after the government lowered the nation’s terror threat level.
