Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released this statement following a brutal terrorist attack at London Bridge, Vauxhall and Borough Market that killed seven people and injured at least 48 more:
“Today, the American people stand in solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom, and share in the shock and outrage of this brutal attack. We send our thoughts and prayers to the fallen, the injured and those still waiting for news of their loved ones.
"Terrorists will not succeed in dimming the strength and spirit of the people of the United Kingdom. Last night's vile attack – the third act of terror to target the United Kingdom in three months – was met with courage and resilience from first responders and from civilian heroes who refused to be intimidated by violence and hatred. The United States will continue to proudly work side-by-side with the U.K. to defeat terrorist threats and defend the security of all peace-loving people.
"May the people of the United Kingdom find solace in knowing that the American people stand with them during this difficult time."
