The Islamic State is claiming credit for an attack in London which
left seven people dead and at least 48 injured. On Saturday night,
assailants plowed over pedestrians with a van on London Bridge
and then went on a stabbing rampage at a nearby market. Police
shot and killed the attackers, who wore what turned out to be fake
suicide vests. The incident comes less than two weeks after a
deadly bombing at a concert in Manchester. We'll talk with New
Yorker journalist and terrorism expert Robin Wright about the
attack.
