"But the last thing we need is people overreacting or beginning to take out their frustrations on other people in other communities or in their own communities". Trump said in a tweet yesterday.

As they rampaged through the bars around London Bridge, the attackers wore what looked like suicide vests which turned out to be "hoaxes", said Mark Rowley, head of counter-terrorism policing.

Three assailants stabbed passers-by at random after smashing into pedestrians in a van, killing six people in a "terror attack" in a popular nightlife hub in London before being shot dead by armed police.

British Prime Minister Theresa May on Sunday announced that the June 8 General Election will go ahead as planned despite another terrorist attack in London as she blamed the "evil ideology of Islamist extremism" for the three terror attacks in the country.

"Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U.K., we will be there - WE ARE WITH YOU. If we don't get smart it will only get worse", Trump tweeted.

This is this third terrorist attack in England in three months.

European Union President Jean-Claude Juncker said he was monitoring the situation "with horror" and sent condolences to victims and their families. We wish a full and quick recovery to those injured in the attacks.

She said she understood it was a "worrying time" and "there is going to be considerable concern by some people, and fear indeed amongst some people". "We encourage any affected US citizens who need assistance to contact the US Embassy in London and follow Department of State guidance", the statement said. The White House said he had been briefed on the incidents by his national security team.

"Of course it's a very complex and confused scene, and a confused series of events, so it's important that we first of all make sure that there is no one else outstanding. You are all in our prayers", said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

USA pop star Ariana Grande, whose concert in Manchester was the scene of last week's fatal terror attack, tweeted: "Praying for London".

"We stand in solidarity with the United Kingdom".

Several people said they were ordered to stay inside pubs and restaurants by police and eventually had to come out with their hands on their heads. He said he threw chairs, glasses and bottles at the attackers in a bid to stop them.

"Tonight is the second attack Great Britain has suffered in just two weeks".

It is the third terror attack to strike the country this year, after a man drove a vehicle into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in March and a bomb attack on an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester two weeks ago.
