London Bridge terror attack: 'Gunshots' heard near terror raids in Barking

Earlier in the day, police in the United Kingdom arrested 12 suspects in response to the attack, which claimed at least seven lives and injured more than 40 others on Saturday night.

The three men, wearing fake suicide bomb vests, were shot dead by eight officers outside a pub after police opened fire with an "unprecedented" hail of 50 bullets, while a bystander was also shot.

Speaking on Sunday outside Scotland Yard, the Metropolitan Police's assistant commissioner Mark Rowley said "significant progress" had been made in identifying the attackers.

The ruling Conservatives and the main opposition Labour party suspended national campaign events for the day, but May insisted the election would go ahead as planned on Thursday.

On the two as-yet unidentified Australians, Mr Turnbull said the government had "very real concerns".

The attack in central London came just weeks after a suicide bombing at a concert in Manchester left 22 dead, and it recalled an attack in March when a man drove a auto into pedestrians near the seat of Parliament, killing five. Law enforcement officials in major United States cities said they were not aware of any threats but were on alert.

A charity concert on June 4 was held for victims of the Manchester attack, featuring Grande, Justin Bieber, and other stars. "Lunging at her", he said.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said Sunday that police had recently foiled five other plots.

"She would have no understanding of the callous cruelty that caused her death", the Archibald family said, requesting that she be honored by people working to make their communities a better place. IS has urged supporters to weaponize vehicles in attacks against the West.

Trump earlier slammed London's Pakistani-origin mayor Sadiq Khan saying it was not the time to be "politically correct", and touted his controversial Muslim travel ban in view of the London attacks.

The paper said that he was later seen "walking calmly towards an ambulance escorted by a police officer holding a makeshift bandage to his neck".

"When I open the door I see three dead people on the floor", he said.

He said that he helped a man and his partner, even taking the woman into his arms because she was too upset to walk properly.

The friend of the suspect also said that he had alerted anti-terror police when he learned that the man was radicalised by watching YouTube videos of Jibril.

"It was really scary", he said.

The officer, who was stabbed in the face, head and a leg, was one of the first responders. He was later described as being in stable condition with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Trump's tweets have been heavily criticized by a number of British politicians, who are now preparing for the country's general election which is scheduled to take place on Thursday.

Further witness accounts of the attack were reported hours after the incident. Diner Richard Angell saw someone throw a table and realized it was a "heroic guy who saw what was happening" - apparently Vowls - and was trying to keep the attackers at bay.

Gerard Vowls told the Associated Press he was on the street when he heard a man moan, "I've been stabbed". Then he picked up a chair.

"I am kind of absorbing this at the moment because I can't understand how it could have been him".
