Security Dominates Election Campaign After London Attack

Security Dominates Election Campaign After London Attack

Two days from a national election, Britain's ruling Conservatives and opposition Labor Party battled to defend their records on security after a terrorist attack that killed seven people in London upended the campaign.
After police named two of the attackers and revealed that one was previously known to security agencies, Prime Minister Theresa May faced further questions about her record overseeing cuts to police numbers when she was interior minister, Reuters reported. The latest opinion poll, by Survation for ITV, had the Conservatives' lead over Labor narrowing to just one point from six points in the same poll a week earlier.
However, the consensus among pollsters remains that May's party that has been in government since 2010 will win a majority.
In Britain's third terror attack in as many months, three men rammed a van into pedestrians on London Bridge on Saturday evening before running into the bustling Borough Market area, where they slit throats and stabbed people.
The rampage followed a suicide bombing that killed 22 adults and children at a pop concert in Manchester two weeks ago and an attack in March when five people died after a car was driven into pedestrians on London's Westminster Bridge.
