Canadian amongst seven dead in London terror attack

The rampage was the third major attack in Britain in the past three months, including a similar vehicle and knife attack on Westminster Bridge in March that left five people dead. Don't worry too much.

The family said she had previously worked at a homeless shelter in Canada, before moving to Europe to be with her fiancé.

"The fact that the response time to these attacks was really quite quick, and the authorities didn't hesitate to shoot these individuals down, is a reflection of the fact that the police are on the front foot", said Raffaello Pantucci, director of worldwide security studies at the Royal United Services Institute in London.

One French national and one Canadian were among those killed. Australia said one of its citizens was among the injured.

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. "I am humbled by the bravery of an officer who will rush towards a potential suicide bomber thinking only of protecting others".

A civilian suffered noncritical gunshot wounds. Police did not release the names of the attackers.

On Sunday morning, police arrested 12 people in East London.

The Canadian victim of the London terror attack has been named as Christine Archibald.

Mrs May set out a four-pronged strategy to tackle terror by countering radical ideology; clamping down on online extremism; preventing the growth of segregated communities; and giving extra powers to police, security agencies and courts. Extremists have a "safe space" on the internet that needs to be removed through worldwide regulatory agreements with like-minded allies.

Hours later he gave the speech criticising police cuts - while security services were receiving widespread praise for quickly swooping on the terrorist gang. After that attack, Britain's official terrorism threat level was raised from "severe" to "critical", meaning an attack may be imminent.

One neighbour Ali Nabi said: "I heard the police shouting "get down, get down", I looked out of my window and they were laid on the floor".

The Government's emergency Cobra committee gathered on Sunday afternoon, for the second time that day, to discuss the attack. I've said hello in passing more than 50, 60 occasions. "They are on their trucks and they're on their way", he said.

During the U.S. presidential campaign previous year, Mr Trump first proposed the ban on Muslims entering the United States, but suggested he could make an exception for Mr Khan, who is London's first Muslim mayor.

Resuming the election campaign Sunday evening, Corbyn said, "You can not protect the public on the cheap".

"New Zealand's thoughts are with the victims of today's attack", said Prime Minister Bill English.

Police chiefs have hailed the "outstanding" bravery of a rugby-playing officer who took on the London Bridge murderers armed with only his baton. Forensic investigators could be seen working on the bridge, where buses and taxis stood abandoned.

"It's about my friends, family, and others from all around the world".

BRISBANE woman Candice Hedge is one of two Australians injured in the terrifying terror attack in London.

Khan spoke those words in a television interview Sunday in the context of reassuring Londoners about an increased police presence they might see.

They said she would have had "no understanding of the callous cruelty that caused her death".

Trump challenged London Mayor Sadiq Khan for saying there was "no reason to be alarmed".

Trudeau went on to say that Londoners and people across the United Kingdom "have always displayed strength and resilience in the face of adversity".

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said he was following the latest incidents "with horror".
