London Terrorist Tried to Hire 7.5 Tonne Truck-But Payment Failed
Last week’s attack in central London could have been a lot more disturbing. The three terrorists wanted to attack with a 7.5-tonne heavy truck.
They tried to rent such a truck in the morning but did not get it because they had problems with the payment. Then they decided to use a delivery van for their attack.
At the attack, eight people died, including pedestrians who were killed on the London Bridge by the three.
The police announced that the three purple ceramic knives had attached to their wrists and that they carried belt straps that were found to be fake.
In the van, the police found eleven wine bottles filled with flammable liquid, to throw away a molotov cocktail.
The assault has been claimed by terrorist organization IS, but there are no evidence that the three men were driven by IS.
The police are still investigating where the three men knew each other. One of the perpetrators came from Pakistan, the other from Italy and the third had ties with Libya, Morocco, and Ireland.
