London police shot terrorists dead within eight minutes of first emergency call

Elsbeth Smedly said a man ran into Elliot’s Cafe in Borough Market and stabbed two people before rushing out. Local restaurant owner Jack Applebee said he saw people running down the street and heard a female voice shout “they’re stabbing everyone.”

The man stabbed a waitress hiding behind a partition, Smedley said. “Everyone ran to the back of the restaurant and crouched down, trying to hide themselves from view. He stabbed her in the neck. He stabbed another man in the back, and then he ran out of the restaurant.”

Applebee turned and saw three men wearing belts or vests with packets around the belly. As they dived under tables, he said, they heard 10 to 15 gunshots. Police stormed in and helped escort people out
