The week began on a somber note as multiple tragedies took place in London. Seven people died and dozens were injured as terrorists attacked London Bridge and the city's Borough Market. Three attackers were named by police, including one who was previously known to authorities.

The country also continued to mourn those lost in the deadly Manchester Arena bombing late last month.

Another major story this week was former FBI Director James Comey testified at a Senate hearing on possible Russian interference into the 2016 election and his relationship with President Donald Trump.

In other politics news, the United Kingdom held its General Election, in which no party won enough seats, leaving a "hung parliament."
