Following the attack on London Bridge earlier this month, a group of Muslims have been handing out red roses at the site of the incident, with messages of love and peace. 

 

Eight people were killed and 48 injured after three attackers mowed down crowds and stabbed passersby.

 

 

The 1000 Roses London initiative was organised by a group of London-based Muslims in an effort to spread “love, solidarity and appreciation”, in the aftermath of the attack on England's capital city.

 

Their message said: “This is the place, the time, the moment to take the pen and write narratives of love and solidarity – not of hate and division.

 

“We won’t let London Bridge fall down nor any bridge upon which the communities of this great city and nation are built.”

 

 

The campaign initially set out to hand out just 1000 roses, however, due to the overwhelming response, both online and from the public, that number was then tripled to 3000.

 

Meanwhile, the British Red Cross launched an initiative to encourage people to visit bars and restaurants in the London Bridge area on Saturday night – exactly one week after the attack.

 

 

A total of seven men are being held in custody under terror laws following the incident on June 3.
