London Bridge Attack: Canadian Christine Archibald Is 1st Victim Identified

British Prime Minister Theresa May is facing growing calls to resign ahead of Thursday's general election as her record as home secretary comes under fire in the wake of a deadly attack in London Bridge.

"Two police officers remained in the back with him, and they had him lined across them and they placed pressure on the wounds and I'm trying to find those police officers now to say thank you", she told CNN.

They said he had children and had lived in the area for a number of years.

"The mindless savagery that we've seen in London is created to shock people and to divide communities and so we must be resolute in our determination to defeat terrorism and defeat the ideology that inspires so many people", she said.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said Monday that the country needed to rethink police resourcing and strategy.

Prime Minister Theresa May warned that the country faced a new threat from copycat attacks.

Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates each issued statements condemning the attack and expressing support for Britain. She said Britain will review its counter-terrorism strategy and consider extending prison terms.

"The greater the securitisation of our society, the longer the fear and impact of terrorism will last", he added.

British counter-terrorism police said they had arrested 12 people in Barking, in east London, in connection with the attack.

"We have a very large investigation ongoing, and we will be seeking to establish whether anyone else was working with or assisting in any way or helping in the planning of this attack". "Using a combination of technology and human review, we work aggressively to remove terrorist content from our platform as soon as we become aware of it - and if we become aware of an emergency involving imminent harm to someone's safety, we notify law enforcement", said Simon Milner, director of policy at the social media company.

Police said on Sunday they were holding 11 people, all arrested in raids on two addresses in Barking and East Ham in east London.

Three knife-wielding attackers in fake suicide vests unleashed a terror rampage in the British capital, plowing a van into pedestrians on the iconic London Bridge before stabbing revellers in a nearby market.

"We grieve the loss of our handsome, loving daughter and sister", a spokesperson for the Archibald family said Sunday.

Christine Archibald, 30, would have had "no understanding of the callous cruelty that caused her death", her family said as they paid tribute to her. Please honor her by making your community a better place. Volunteer your time and labour or donate to a homeless shelter.

A Brisbane woman whose throat was slashed in the weekend's London terrorist attack thought she was going to die in the rampage. She wouldn't say whether authorities were familiar with the men before the attack.

A bystander was also wounded by the gunfire, but the civilian's injuries were not believed to be critical.

A van was driven into pedestrians on London Bridge at 10.08pm followed by reports of people being stabbed in nearby Borough Market, an area packed with bars and restaurants.

Those who would like to take part should get the tube to London Bridge station and walk along the River Thames, or travel to Tower Hill station and walk over Tower Bridge.
