She called for tougher measures to contain Islamic extremism, saying the recent attacks are not directly linked, but "terrorism breeds terrorism". She went on to say the United Kingdom needed undertake new efforts at home, and reach new global agreements with other countries to help "deprive the extremists of their safe spaces online".

During the raid, one resident said police showed him a photo of one of the slain terror attackers.

Twitter also said it was working to tackle the spread of militant propaganda on its website.

"As soon as we heard about the incident we immediately suspended dynamic pricing all around the area of the attacks - and shortly afterward across the whole of central London - just as we did following the attacks in Manchester and Westminster", he said. Within eight minutes, all of the suspects had been fatally shot by officers, according to authorities. A passer-by was wounded.

We've rounded up what's real and what's not in the wake of Saturday's London terror attack. People were warned to avoid the area while emergency vehicles attended to the incidents which police described as "ongoing". "He's one of our neighbors". A BBC reporter who was on the bridge at the time said the van was being driven at around 50 miles per hour by a male suspect. He has two young kids.

A neighbour said one of the attackers had recently asked him how he could hire a van.

He also said security arrangements for forthcoming events were being reviewed and the public could expect to see additional police, both armed and unarmed, across the capital.

"Londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days".

Eyewitnesses reported that a white rental van sped down the pavement on London Bridge, which crosses the River Thames in London, deliberately swerving, hitting and mowing down pedestrians before crashing at the southern end. London Bridge and the adjacent train station, as well as nearby Borough subway station, were still closed. It knocked loads of people down.

The three attackers had driven onto the bridge at high-speed, mowing down pedestrians before getting out of the vehicle and stabbing people at nearby bars and restaurants. "I saw a young girl stabbed in the chest". The attackers, wielding blades and knives, ran down a set of stairs into Borough Market, a well-known fruit and vegetable market that's also home to popular restaurants and pubs.

Florin Morariu, who works at the Bread Ahead bakery said: "We were looking out of the window because we saw that everyone was agitated, everyone was running, people, women. they were fainting, falling and we went outside to see what was happening".

Saturday night's atrocity was the third terrorist outrage to hit the country this year. He offered his condolences to the victims and their families, and thanked emergency responders and police for their service.

President Donald Trump, 70, has voters in a frenzy after bashing London Mayor Sadiq Khan in a Twitter tirade on June 4.

Though there has been no claim of responsibility for the attack, it hit a nation still recovering from the shock of the bombing in Manchester nearly two weeks ago, when a suicide bomber blew himself up outside the doors of an Ariana Grande concert.
