Earlier this month, eight people were killed in attacks on and near London Bridge. Two of the men were considered extremist Muslims. In March, four people were killed, including the assailant, and about 20 were injured when a man drove his car into pedestrians on London’s Westminster Bridge and then stabbed an armed police officer to death. In July of 2016, 84 people were killed and more than 400 were injured when an attacker drove a truck into a huge Bastille Day crowd in Nice, France.
