Police Conduct Raid at Home of London Terror Attack Suspect


May's office said she would chair a meeting of the government's COBRA emergency committee on Sunday.

The vehicle was driven at high speed into people on London Bridge just after 10pm on Saturday before continuing to Borough Market.

She said she would still make the trip to the site, but instead to lay flowers and pay respect to those who had been affected by the tragedy.

Armed police confronted the three male suspects and then shot and killed them in Borough Market.

There were reports of at least one dead and many more injured. Some media reports said police were seeking another attacker.

A massive manhunt was launched after the incident.

The BBC showed dozens of people being escorted to safety through a police cordon with their hands on their heads.

Police shot dead three suspects.

"London Bridge would have been very busy with pedestrians at this time of night". Officers have then responded to reports of stabbings in #BoroughMarket.

She said she saw two men and a woman being taken away by ambulance after other neighbours reported hearing shots fired, while two men were later led away by police. Rowley said the van continued on to the nearby crowded Borough Market.

Among those injured is a British Transport Police (BTP) officer who was stabbed in the face as he responded to the incident.

Yes, Juve were unfortunate, in the extreme, with the deflected goal from Casemiro that gave Madrid a 2-1 lead just after the hour. We're going to have to work very hard to win once again. "I can not explain why we played like we did in the second half".

Last night, as people fled London Bridge and the surrounding area, one man became an unlikely hero - quite possibly without even realising.

"The situation is still unfolding and I would ask all Londoners and visitors to our city to remain calm and vigilant". British Transport Police reported multiple casualties at that incident. His condition is serious, but not life-threatening.

She adds that seven people have died and 48 injured in the attack. One, Holly Jones, told the BBC a white van veered off the road and struck as many as six people.

Prime Minister Theresa May also paid tribute to the response of the emergency services, saying: "On behalf of the people of London and on behalf of the whole country, I want to thank and pay tribute to the professionalism and bravery of the police and the emergency services, and the courage of members of the public who defended themselves and others from the attackers".

A speeding van first mowed down several pedestrians on London Bridge before three men jumped out of the vehicle and started stabbing people with "long knives".

"Everyone was running", a witness told Sky News.

It comes less than three months after an attacker ran down people with a vehicle on Westminster Bridge, killing four, then stabbed a policeman to death outside Parliament.

England has been under heightened alert since a bomb was detonated at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester nearly two weeks ago, killing 22 and wounding more than 100 as they left the venue.

France said two of its citizens were injured in the attack, one seriously, and President Emmanuel Macron, said his nation - which has suffered its own wave of terror attacks - was "more than ever at Britain's side".

The first was the fight against the "evil ideology" inspiring the repeated attacks, which she called a perversion of Islam and of the truth.The fight could not be won through military intervention alone, she said, adding that there was a need to defend pluralistic British values that were superior to anything offered by the "preachers of hate".Secondly, May said, new regulations were needed to reduce the space available to extremists online.
