The Islamic State (ISIS), has claimed responsibility for the London terror attack that took place on Friday at London Bridge.

The incident had claimed the lives of 2 people and had wounded 3 others.

The extremist group's Amaq news agency on Saturday said the 28-year-old attacker Usman Khan was one of Islamic State’s fighters, as per the reports of metro.co.uk.

Although the Islamic State had not provided any evidence, it said that the attack was carried out in response to its calls to target citizens of the countries that have been part of a coalition fighting against the jihadist group.

“The person who carried out the London attack... was a fighter from the Islamic State, and did so in response to calls to target citizens of coalition countries,” the statement read.
