London attack: 12 arrested in Barking after van and knife attack

This article talks about the London Terror Attack a few days ago. Previous reports have stated that only 3 perpetrators were involved in this attack, but now 12 total have been arrested in another terrible tragedy that the world has endured. Much of the article talks about the bravery that multiple citizens embraced in attempting to take down the assailants, as well as the policemen for taking down three of the assailants. This is the third attack in the past three months in the UK alone, and many of us may be wondering how much longer attacks like this will continue to occur until something drastic happens. It is going to be very difficult trying to pinpoint motives and justification for such horrific acts by those who have committed them. Terror on any level will not be tolerated, and much of the world has come together to remember those who have fallen in such dark times. Attacks elsewhere outside of the UK have been occurring frequently in the past few months, as the article also highlights. I'm hoping that someday there will be peace and we can rid the world of IS and all of the terrible horrors they bring to the fray of many lives worldwide.
