'I Will Do What Is Necessary' In Wake of London Attack

'I Will Do What Is Necessary' In Wake of London Attack

He said he managed to get near one attacker and "hit him around the head" with a bread basket.

"A large incident, an incident involving multiple attacks, that's the kind of situation where I believe the military would be the ultimate lead agency", he said today.

Police officers on duty stand next to floral tributes on Southwark Street in London, Sunday, June 4, 2017, near the scene of Saturday's attack.

'A number of people have been detained, ' police said in a statement after two early morning raids in east London, as commuters returned to the scene of the attacks after some security cordons were removed.

The three attackers were shot dead by police within minutes. Police had also been warned after the suspect reportedly attempted to radicalise children in a local park, The Daily Mail and The Guardian reported.

He said: "The investigation is progressing at pace, and officers from the Met's Counter Terrorism Command, the National Counter Terrorism Policing network are working relentlessly with United Kingdom intelligence partners to piece together exactly what occurred".

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said 36 people were in hospital with a "range of injuries" and 21 were in a critical condition.

Those attending the gala included Vice President Mike Pence, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other political, business and philanthropic leaders.

President Trump Sunday night said the violence in London over the weekend was a "horrific terrorist attack".

So far, 7 people have been reported dead and 48 injured, in the attacks on a part of London that catered to everyone - a vibrant mix of cheap eats, high-end restaurants, food stalls and local pubs - a place that's as likely to draw in tourists as it is local residents. It is not clear when national campaigning will resume.

She said since September 2014, when the terror threat was raised to probable, there have been four attacks, more than 60 arrests and 12 thwarted attacks. "Our solidarity and support for the British people and authorities". "We have to get serious about cutting off the funding to these terror networks, including Isis here and in the Middle East", Mr Corbyn said. "Yet that is precisely what the Internet and the big companies that provide Internet-based services provide".

Mr Lamas said the man who was shot was with two friends who said they American doctors living in London.

The attacks have been heavily condemned by Muslims.

Ms Dick refused to comment on the identity of the attackers or what was found inside the van used in the atrocity.

In a statement Sunday denouncing the "abominable and cowardly" attack, Macron said France will continue fighting "terrorism with all our strength alongside Britain and all other countries concerned". The assault was claimed by the so-called Islamic State group.

In March, in a attack similar to Saturday's, five people died after a man drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in central London and stabbed a policeman. "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.

The invitation issued by Khan's office says the vigil also is meant to show "We will never let these cowards win and we will never be cowed by terrorism".
