Corbyn: 'difficult' talks needed with Saudis after London attack

President Emmanuel Macron voiced his support for Britain and said France "will continue to fight terrorism with all its powers, alongside the United Kingdom and all affected countries". Three attackers drove a white van into crowds on busy London Bridge and then fled the van wielding large knives and attacked people indiscriminately at bars and restaurants in nearby Borough Market shouting "This is for Allah", police and witnesses said.

The attack unfolded quickly as armed police rushed to the scene and within eight minutes shot dead the three male attackers who were wearing what looked like explosives which later turned out to be fake.

US President Donald Trump came under fire on Sunday for criticizing London's mayor in the aftermath of attacks in the city that killed seven people and injured at least 48 others.

Vehicular and knife-related terrorist attacks are becoming all-too common throughout Europe.

The 12 arrests were made in the ethnically diverse east London suburb of Barking, with Sky News reporting that a property raided by police belonged to one of the killers.

The Metropolitan Police are "increasingly confident" the three attackers were the only ones involved in the attack, and officers say they are making "significant progress" in identifying them.

Several people said they were ordered by police to stay inside pubs and restaurants as the terror raged outside late Saturday. Prime Minister Theresa May said the election would go ahead as planned on Thursday. "Love to all", she said in a Facebook post.

"It is an ideology that is a perversion of Islam and a perversion of the truth".

Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project and who argued the 4th Circuit case opposing the executive order, told ABC News that there isn't a comparable court case to the one against the travel order in part because of what Trump says on Twitter and in speeches.

Calling for change, the prime minister continued: "We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are".

Saturday's attack was the second to involve a vehicle driving into pedestrians on a bridge in London in just three months.

Eight police officers fired an unprecedented number of bullets to stop three attackers in London who appeared to be suicide bombers wearing explosive vests, Britain's counter-terrorism police chief has said.

The flag at Downing Street is flying at half-mast as a mark of respect to the victims of the attack and the ruling Conservative party has announced that it has suspended its national election campaign for Sunday, with plans to review during the course of the day.

The U.S. State Department condemned what it called "the cowardly attacks targeting innocent civilians" in a statement, and echoed Trump's readiness to provide any assistance that British authorities request.

Her family said in a statement: "We grieve the loss of our handsome, loving daughter and sister".

One member of the public was accidentally shot when officers descended on Borough Market shortly after the knifemen had begun their rampage.
