Trudeau confirms a Canadian was among those killed in London terror attack

12 arrests made in London terror attack

12 arrests made in London terror attack

Armed police shot three knife-wielding suspects within eight minutes of being called to the scene after a white van ploughed into pedestrians on the bridge at the heart of the capital.

All the major political parties apart from UKIP suspended national campaigning for Sunday but Mrs May insisted Thursday's General Election will go ahead.

Twelve people have been arrested in east London and searches are underway at a number of addresses.

"It is time to say, enough is enough", she said.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

A person covers their face as they are led away by police from a flat in Barking. "And we need to do everything we can at home to reduce the risks of extremism online", she said.

"Two men said 'help me, ' they had gunshot or stab wounds on their backs and the blood was flowing", Ansah said. "Evil, evil people", he told the newspaper.

An eyewitness, Gerard, told the BBC: "They were running up shouting "This is for Allah".

"Our Commander in Chief should be directing support to a vital USA ally, not using horrendous attack to stoke fear & hate", she tweeted. Congressman Eliot L Engel, ranking member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, said the USA "must stand ready to help our ally track down the perpetrators and swiftly bring them to justice".

An Australian and four French nationals were among those hospitalised, their governments said, while a Spaniard was slightly wounded. Some 22 people were also killed last month in a suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. "America stands with the people of Great Britain and the victims of the #LondonBridge attack", tweeted Senator Dianne Feinstein.

We don't know what Trump has decided on Paris climate deal: Germany
Johan Rockstrom, director of the Stockholm Resilience Centre, called Trump's decision "irresponsible and egoistic". A White House official said the couple instead attended service at synagogue for the Jewish holiday of Shavuot.

In a string of Twitter comments, the USA leader vowed support for Britain, criticized London's mayor and took a tough stance on fighting terrorism.

"It's time to say 'enough is enough.' We cannot and must not pretend that things can remain the same..."

She repeated calls for global action to combat extremist content online, a message she took to the G7 leaders summit last week.

"While we have made significant progress in recent years, there is - to be frank - far too much tolerance of extremism in our country".

Resuming the election campaign Sunday evening, Corbyn said, "You can not protect the public on the cheap".

Though the gruesome acts have disrupted many lives, the United Kingdom election will continue as planned on Thursday, June 8, as will today's Ariana Grande benefit concert, which intends to raise money for the victims of the May 22 bombing at her Manchester Arena concert.

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.

Friend Isabelle Oderberg tweeted: "We have found Geoff. GOD BLESS!" - and highlighting his thwarted ban on travellers from six mainly Muslim countries.

An off-duty Metropolitan Police Service officer was among those injured in the bloody truck-and-knife assault by London Bridge and a nearby market, according to the Guardian.

The BTP officer, who has not been named, is now said to be in stable condition. The force said the men were wearing what looked like suicide vests that turned out to be fake.
