Iran condemns London attack, calls for unity in fight against terrorism

At least four dozen were wounded, and police have arrested 12 people.

Witnesses reported seeing a white, speeding van veer onto the sidewalk on the bridge in central London just after 10 p.m. local time, hitting at least six people and leaving multiple casualties, the BBC reported.

Officials say after the pedestrians were hit, three men armed with large knives then fled the scene and started attacking people at bars and restaurants in the nearby Borough Market.

A helicopter was also hovering over the area, although it is not clear if it was a police chopper.

They added that besides the seven people and three terrorists killed in the attacks, "a further 48 people were taken to hospital, some of whom are believed to be suffering serious and life threatening injuries".

Mr Pettit said he had seen a photo which appeared to show "one of the attackers upside down on the floor wearing camouflage pants, which he (the neighbour) was wearing two days ago".

"People will see enhanced high visibility patrols at key locations across the counties as we continue to keep all policing under review across Surrey and Sussex to ensure the most appropriate security is in place to keep our communities safe".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says a Canadian was among those killed in Saturday night's terror attack in London.

A charity concert for victims of the Manchester attack, featuring Grande and other stars, is due to be held in the northwest English city on Sunday.

"We believe we are experiencing a new trend in the threat we face as terrorism breeds terrorism, and perpetrators are inspired to attack not only on the basis of carefully constructed plots after years of planning and training, and not even as lone attackers radicalized online, but by copying one another and often using the crudest of means of attack".

London Bridge and the adjacent train station, as well as nearby Borough subway station, were still closed. The bombing, which also injured more than 100 people, came just at the end of a concert by Ms. Grande at the Manchester Arena. Khan said Sunday he is "appalled and furious" over the bridge attack, swearing, "We will never let these cowards win, and we will never be cowed by terrorism". Several days later it was lowered again to "severe", meaning an attack is highly likely.

May called on global communications companies to do more to block cyberspace to extremist groups who use it for recruitment and for encrypted information about plots.

Thirdly, she said, more needed to be done to identify and stamp out extremism across British society.

Boats on the River Thames helped evacuate the area, which is popular with tourists.

As the country wakes to the trio's van and knife terror rampage at Borough Market armed police and forensics investigator swarm the area.

Police said the attackers were wearing suspected suicide vests, which were later found to be fake.

Richard Angell, who was in a restaurant, said he looked out, "and opposite there's a guy who is throwing a table at somebody and it's very unclear about what is happening and it turns out to be a heroic guy who saw what was happening and just bombarded these bad cowardly people with stuff". May's Conservative Party had been expected to win by a wide margin but recent polls have showed the race tightening. It is unclear how the unprecedented violence in the run-up to the election will impact voter sentiment. The Canadian High Commission in the United Kingdom also said that "we have been advised that a Canadian citizen was directly impacted by the attack". Twenty-one remained in critical condition Sunday.

"We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people". He also appeared to criticize Mayor Khan's remarks.
