London terror: 21 'critical' after van and stabbing attack


He was not asked about Islamist extremism. It is unclear how the unprecedented violence in the run-up to the election will impact voter sentiment.

She addressed the nation after chairing an emergency meeting of her Cabinet.

Attackers used a van to barrel into pedestrians on London Bridge, then attacked people in bars and restaurants nearby with knives on Saturday.

A witness told CNN two men had entered a restaurant in the Borough Market area and stabbed two people inside. Others hid behind tables and inside bathrooms or attempted to flee.

One witness inside the station described the scene to Sky News. A Reuters photographer later saw four women being removed from the building, shielding their faces as they stepped into police vans. There was no immediate claim of responsibility. K., we will be there - WE ARE WITH YOU.

"We can not allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed", she said.

"Perpetrators are inspired to attack not only on the basis of carefully constructed plots. and not even as lone attackers radicalised online, but by copying one another and often using the crudest of means of attack".

Governor General David Johnston tweeted about the attack, calling it "evil and senseless". She called for tougher measures to contain Islamic extremism, saying the recent attacks are not directly linked, but "terrorism breeds terrorism".

May said that Britain's counter-terrorism strategy would be reviewed, and warned that the internet could no longer remain a "safe space" for extremists. There were reports of an attack not only on London Bridge but also in Borough Market (between London and Southwark bridges), multiple reports of gunshots being heard near the bridge we were on, and potentially explosive devices on the suspects.

Paterno, who like the other administrators failed to alert authorities to the 2001 complaint, was never charged with a crime. The judge said, "All three ignored the opportunity to put an end to Sandusky's crimes when they had a chance to do so".

The attackers ploughed into pedestrians as they raced south along the bridge in a white Hermes hire van before crashing into a balustrade outside the Barrowboy and Banker pub just after 10pm. Forensic investigators could be seen working on the bridge, where buses and taxis stood abandoned. Grande and other stars are scheduled to perform a benefit concert for victims under tight security in Manchester Sunday night. Police said the event would go ahead as planned though security would be increased.

Assistant Metropolitan Police Commissioner Mark Rowley said that while police believe all the attackers were killed, the investigation is expanding.

It was the third attack in Britain this year that Islamic State has claimed - after a similar attack on Westminister Bridge in March and the Manchester concert bombing two weeks ago - and one of several involving vehicles in Europe, including last year's Bastille Day rampage in the French city of Nice. May said the assailants' aim had been to sow panic. The injuries to that person were not believed to be critical, he said.

The country's terror level remains at severe - meaning an attack is highly likely - but has not been raised to critical as it was after the Manchester Arena bombing.

Meanwhile, Mr Trump's son Donald Jr tweeted a link to an article from last yearin which Mr Khan said that being prepared for terror attacks was "part and parcel" of living in a big city, with the comment: "You have to be kidding me!?"

The attack began just after 10 p.m. local time on London Bridge, just north of an area replete with cafes and bars, and near the London Bridge rail and underground interchange.

Trump also tweeted that it's time to restore his twice-struck down travel "ban" (his words) because why not turn a tragedy into a political opp? Within eight minutes, all of the suspects had been fatally shot by officers, according to authorities.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and Russian President Vladimir Putin were among those who sent messages of condolences and made statements of solidarity.

Pope Francis offered prayers for the victims of the London attacks during a traditional Sunday blessing following Mass at the Vatican. Australia said two of its citizens were caught up in it and one of them was in hospital.

He then tweeted a few minutes later: "At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!"'
