Julie Bishop Confirms Two Australians Killed In London Terror Attack

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has released a statement to sadly confirm two Australians were killed in the London Terror Attack.

The names of the victims have not been officially released, although we already know the family of South Australian nurse Kirsty Boden confirmed her death.

"The Australian Government is deeply saddened to confirm that two Australians have been killed in the London terrorist attack," Bishop said in the statement.

"We continue to work with the United Kingdom authorities who have asked that we await official confirmation of the identities of the victims, and for the families to be officially notified, before we release their names."

"The Australian Government has remained in close contact with the families who have requested privacy. We ask the media to respect their request at this difficult and harrowing time."


Boden's family released a statement on Tuesday night saying Kirsty was "the most outgoing, kind and generous person, who loved to help people".

"Kirsty was loved and adored by her family, friends and boyfriend. As she ran towards danger, in an effort to help people on the bridge, Kirsty sadly lost her life."

"We are so proud of Kirsty's brave actions which demonstrate how selfless, caring and heroic she was, not only on that night, but throughout all of her life."

"Kirsty – we love you and we will miss you dearly."
