ISIS claims responsibility for London Bridge attack

The SITE Intelligence Group said ISIS's Aamaq news agency, cited "a security source" in the post taking responsibility.

Twelve people were arrested on Sunday morning in Barking, east London, following a raid at an apartment belonging to one of the three attackers that were shot dead by police on Saturday night. Among the wounded, 21 people are in critical condition.

Last June, after the deadly shooting attack on a nightclub in Orlando, Florida, Trump had tweeted: 'Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don't want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance.

Andrew Morrison, who was caught up in the London terror attacks.

"We believe we are experiencing a new trend in the threat we face as terrorism breeds terrorism", she said.

Armed officers also conducted a raid in the East Ham area of the city.

Eight officers fired an "unprecedented" 50 rounds at the three attackers, according to Mark Rowley, head of national counter-terrorism policing, who said that a member of the public also suffered a gunshot wound.

Witness Gerard Vowls told The Guardian newspaper that he saw a woman being stabbed by three men at the south end of London Bridge as the assault developed.

A 55-year-old man was later released.

On May 22, a suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured dozens at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, in northwest England.

"I chucked it, but I think I missed one of them, and then I picked up a stool, and I threw it at him. Evil, evil people", he told The Guardian newspaper. In March, a British convert to Islam ran down people with a vehicle on Westminster Bridge, killing four before fatally stabbing a policeman on Parliament's grounds.

Instead they "started kicking them, punching them and took out knives. It was a rampage really", he said, adding that he heard a shout of: "This is for Allah".

An Australian was among those hospitalised, while a Spaniard escaped with light injuries.

A French citizen was also among those killed, the French Foreign Minister has confirmed.

It was not the first time Trump has been accused of using a terror attack to make a political point, and with Londoners still in shock Sunday, the president's tweets drew angry responses on both sides of the Atlantic.

London Bridge and the adjacent train station, as well as nearby Borough subway station, were still closed. Grande and other stars performed Sunday night at a benefit concert for victims under tight security in Manchester. "But we got to move on".

Britain's official terrorism threat level was raised from "severe" to "critical" after the Manchester attack, meaning an attack may be imminent. May said the vote would take place as scheduled Thursday because "violence can never be allowed to disrupt the democratic process".

Earlier Prime Minister Theresa May warned that Britain is in the grip of a spate of copycat terror plots and stated her determination to stamp out "safe spaces" that exist in the real world, saying: "There is - to be frank - far too much tolerance of extremism in our country".

Major parties suspended national campaigning Sunday out of respect for the victims, although the right-wing UK Independence Party said it would keep campaigning to show the extremists they couldn't sidetrack democracy.

Saturday's rampage is the latest in a string of attacks to hit Europe, including in Paris, Berlin and Saint Petersburg, and the French, German and Russian leaders sent messages of support.
