"I am heartbroken that a Canadian is among those killed". The Westminster attack, carried out by a British convert to Islam, also made use of a vehicle to ram people on the bridge, and a knife for a subsequent stabbing rampage on the grounds of Parliament. He started running towards me, and then he decided not to.

A member of the public received non-critical gunshot wounds during the incident, he said.

Police arrested 12 people on Sunday in the east London district of Barking following a raid on a flat occupied by one of the attackers.

A vigil for the victims will take place at nearby Tower Bridge on Monday evening.

Trump poured scorn on Khan's attempt to reassure the public after three assailants smashed a van into pedestrians on London Bridge then attacked revelers with knives.

She added: "As a country, our response must be as it has always been when we have been confronted by violence".

"Firstly, we must not allow the terrorists to divide us". Twitter also said it was working to tackle the spread of militant propaganda.

These terrorist attacks are against human values and deserve utmost condemnation in every possible way, said a Foreign Office statement.

The death toll from a terror attack in London had risen to seven Sunday morning - in addition to three suspects who were shot and killed by police.

Another witness, Will Heaven, said he saw people who appeared to have been hit, and one being put into an ambulance.

May made a private visit to staff and patients at King's College Hospital, where some of the injured were being treated, a spokeswoman said.

"The Government of Canada will not comment further at this time out of respect for the family".

"That will include armed police - the number of armed response vehicles on duty today has been increased substantially".

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the Manchester bombing, but there was no immediate claim of responsibility for the London attack, which the prime minister linked to Islamic extremism. In addition, the three attackers were killed by police.

"As her family and province mourn, we must never forget who we are - and the diversity that makes us strong", Clark said.

She warned that perpetrators are inspired to attack "by copying one another".

May, who served as Britain's interior minister from 2010 to 2016, said there was too much tolerance of extremism in Britain.

What do we know about the attackers?

That sentiment was echoed by Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The US ambassador to Britain, Lewis Lukens, directly contradicted President Trump and threw his support behind London Mayor Sadiq Khan in a series of tweets on Sunday.

A spokesman said Khan 'has more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump's ill-informed tweet'.

Trump said he had spoken with British Prime Minister Theresa May to express America's "unwavering support" and offer USA assistance as the British government works to protect its citizens and bring the guilty to justice.

Italian photographer Gabriele Sciotto, who was watching the football at the Wheatsheaf pub in Borough Market, said he saw three men shot just outside the pub.

At several points outside the cordon, people laid flowers and messages of grief and solidarity.

Before the London Bridge attack, May's gamble on a June 8 snap election had been thrust into doubt after polls showed her Conservative Party's lead had collapsed in recent weeks. "As a city we will stand united against terror". "We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!"

Dozens of stunned people left the area with their hands on their heads as heavily armed police fanned across the crowded capital. "My thoughts go out to the victims and their loved ones", said French President Emmanuel Macron.
