London terror: Member of public caught in police fire

Shortly after Trump tweeted, British Prime Minister Theresa May said the incident was being treated as a "potential act of terrorism" and London police later tweeted that they were "declared as terrorist incidents".

In the final tweet in his morning series, Trump noted that the London attackers used a van to slam into pedestrians and then assaulted people with knives.

The deputy chief constable of Northants Police, Rachel Swann, has condemned last night's terrorist attack in London which claimed the lives of at least seven people and left nearly 50 injured. "We want Facebook to be a hostile environment for terrorists", said Simon Milner, Director of Policy at Facebook in an emailed statement.

May announced that the attackers were Islamist extremists, but that British authorities haven't found a common link between last night's attackers, and the perpetrators behind the attacks at Westminster Bridge in March, and the concert bombing in May.

Terrorism struck at the heart of London, police said Sunday, after a vehicle veered off the road and mowed down pedestrian.

May said Thursday's general election will go ahead as scheduled.

Ten people were killed in total - seven victims and the three attackers, who were fatally shot by police within minutes.

Witnesses and police officers described a white van roaring across London Bridge, jumping over the curb and plowing over shrieking pedestrians.

The National Health Service said meanwhile that 21 people remained in critical condition.

While Ruiz said he has always felt safe in London, but this attack makes him question that a bit. Eyewitnesses said they heard the men shout "this is for Allah", British media reported.

The police confirmed that the perpetrators had used a rented auto during the attack.

The locations are very close to each other - within a short walking distance - but police have not yet confirmed whether the two attacks are related.

"I could see a whole lot of police cars, they were quite loud and were driving quite quick and it was pretty obvious something had happened ... then suddenly it was all over the news", she said.

Journalist Geoff Ho, the business editor of the Sunday Express, was injured while confronting the attackers.

President Donald Trump on Sunday criticized London's mayor after he sought to reassure residents about a stepped-up police presence on city streets following the third deadly attack there in the past three months, arguing on Twitter for leaders to "stop being politically correct" and focus on "security for our people".

She said defeating "evil" Islamism must be a priority but can not be done with military intervention alone.

Grande was to return to Manchester with a star-powered lineup Sunday night to perform in a charity concert and pay tribute to the victims.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. The officer was stabbed in the face, head and a leg.

Witness Shimma Ali, 32, said it was terrifying to see dozens of armed officers in the street.
