Islamic State claims responsibility for London attack

Prime Minister Theresa May said Britain had to be tougher in stamping out Islamist extremism after attackers killed at least seven people by ramming a van into pedestrians on London Bridge and stabbing revellers in nearby bars.

Gerard Vowls, 47, said he saw a woman repeatedly stabbed, and threw chairs, glasses and bottles at the attackers in a bid to stop them.

Police have foiled 18 terror plots since 2013 and arrest around one person every day in counter-terror raids, Ms Dick said.

London authorities were in the early phase of responding to reports of attacks on London Bridge and other areas of the city when Trump weighed in on Twitter.

After arriving back home in Chicago on Sunday, DeHaan said one thing stood out to him in hindsight - the lack of visible law enforcement at tourist spots in London, including the site of the attack.

Neighbours claimed that one of the terrorists whom police shot dead had lived in the block of flats with his family, The Telegraph reported.

"There was a vehicle with a loudspeaker saying "go, go" and they (police) threw a grenade. and then I ran", he said. "The three attackers were shot dead", he continued.

One victims of the London Bridge attack was named on Sunday by her family as Canadian Christine Archibald.

Speaking outside Downing Street after chairing a committee of the emergency COBRA committee, Theresa May said Britain "cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are" following the third terror attack in the United Kingdom within four months. "All we feel here tonight is love, resilience, positivity", said Pharrel Williams, who performed alongside Miley Cyrus.

The attack began at about 10 p.m. local time Saturday, when three men drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge, police said.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the incident, but the ensuing chaos - in a country still shaken by last month's bombing at a Manchester concert as well as an attack outside Parliament in March- quickly reverberated around the world.

Prime minister Malcolm Turnbull says two Australians appeared to have been directly affected by Saturday night's terrorist attacks in London.

President Trump responded to the terror attacks in London by taking aim at London's mayor, political correctness and gun control.

USA president Donald Trump has vowed that "this bloodshed must end" after terror attacks in London Bridge left seven people dead.

His Chief Constable Paul Crowther said: 'For an officer who only joined us less than two years ago, the bravery he showed was outstanding and makes me extremely proud.

The White House said Trump "praised the heroic response of police and other first responders and offered the full support of the United States Government in investigating and bringing those responsible for these heinous acts to justice".
