Outrage as Trump targets London mayor after attacks


Seven people, including one Canadian, have been killed by attackers who drove a van at high speed into pedestrians on London Bridge and then stabbed revellers in the nearby Borough Market area on Saturday night.

- 10:16 p.m.: Eight minutes after police were first called, three male suspects were shot dead by eight armed officers near the Wheatsheaf pub on Stoney Street.

London's police chief has said the attackers have been identified, but the names haven't been released.

The van slammed into pedestrians on the sidewalk near the bridge's south end, then three men raced away from the vehicle wielding knives and wearing what police said later were fake explosive vests.

In response to the attack, Prime Minister Theresa May vowed a tougher response to the Islamic extremism that has inspired terrorism across Western Europe.

May said Sunday that police had recently foiled five other plots.

"They went 'This is for Allah, ' and they had a woman on the floor".

He also denied that Kislyak had made a deal with members of Trump's team on lifting Washington's anti-Russia sanctions. Kelly , who was a prime-time star on Fox News Channel, moved to NBC at the start of this year.


The Prime Minister announced that 11 people remain in police custody in connection with the investigation.

The police said there would be "increased physical measures on London's bridges to keep the public safe", and on Monday, concrete barricades had been erected on at least one of the city's major bridges as commuters made their way to work.

"A detachment of fighters from ISIS carried out London attacks", said on Sunday the Amaq news agency, which is affiliated with the jihadists.

With three attacks in three months, terrorism against soft targets is beginning to feel, to some people, like the new normal.

Dick said police had seized "a huge amount of forensic material" after going through the van used in the attack "very very carefully". "I don't know enough about it yet", the Pentagon chief said, adding, "I like learning about something before I talk".

Archibald was a loving daughter and sister, said her family, and was by all accounts a giving person with a big heart who wanted to make the world a better place.

The attack took place less than two weeks after a suicide bombing claimed 22 lives at a Manchester concert, and just one day before a benefit concert for victims of that attack.

"When I open the door I see three dead people on the floor", he said. He has more important things to do than respond to Donald Trumps ill-informed tweet that deliberately takes out of context his remarks urging Londoners not to be alarmed when they saw more police — including armed officers — on the streets.”.

He said that he helped a man and his partner, even taking the woman into his arms because she was too upset to walk properly.

Hedge, a 34-year-old waitress, has been living in Britain for about a year and was working in the Borough Markets area where witnesses say she was stabbed as she tried to hide under a table.

"It was really scary", he said. He was later described as being in stable condition with injuries that weren't life-threatening.

Because there have been calls made by a lot of very responsible people on this, who are very anxious that she was at the Home Office for all this time, presided over these cuts in police numbers and now is saying that we have a problem.

"I went 'Oi, terrorists, cowards, Oi!'" he told The Associated Press.

Heroic policemen took on three terrorists using batons and their bare hands while fearless revellers threw chairs and glasses. No one came to me.
