Europe and Eurasia: United States Condemns Attacks in London

America's Department of Homeland Security said late Saturday that it is working with counterparts in the United Kingdom and elsewhere on the reported attacks in London, wherein a van careened into people on London Bridge and more than one potentially related incident unfolded nearby.

The State Department has soundly decried the terrorist attacks perpetrated Saturday evening in London, which have resulted in multiple fatalities.

World forges ahead with Paris climate deal without Trump
So, what does President Trump do? Several more mayors took to Twitter to vow to uphold the obligations from the Paris Accord. However, there is a very strong consensus that human activity is the primary force shifting Earth's climate.

Guterres denounced the deadly incidents as "unjustifiable violence" and also expressed his condolences to the families of the victims and wished the injured a swift recovery. "All Americans stand in solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom".

Authorities said seven people were killed and dozens more injured when a van sped across London Bridge on Saturday and rammed into numerous pedestrians.

Europe & China reaffirm commitment to combat climate change
The resulting greenhouse gas emissions thus appear on other countries' ledgers. "We will support them and fight on their side". "History will harshly judge the Trump administration's decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Agreement ", he said .

Media reports said the attacks took place at two London landmarks - London Bridge and Borough Market.

As of 11am (Singapore time) on Sunday, the attacks had claimed six lives. The three assailants were reportedly shot by the police. Both areas have been placed on lockdown following the attacks.

Reaction to climate-accord pullout is overblown
The U.S. might have walked away from the Paris Agreement , but that doesn't mean all its cities and states will do the same. To recap, the Paris Agreement is a 195-nation treaty - now 194 - that sets standards for countries to reduce emissions.

State Department officials are "strongly" encouraging USA citizens in the United Kingdom to directly contact family members in the "advise them of your safety".
