London terror attack: Canadian among those killed, Prime Minister's Office says

Moments later, three men got out of the vehicle at nearby Borough Market and began stabbing passersby at random, including a police officer, who was seriously injured, according to authorities.

Seven people lost their lives in the attack and 48 were wounded or injured, of which 36 remain hospitalized, 21 of them in critical condition. "In the other case, we are continuing to make inquiries", he said. Lewis Bennett told the Guardian newspaper:"People started screaming and running out the back door".

Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn criticised May, who was interior minister from 2010 to 2016, for cutting police numbers during her tenure in charge of the interior ministry.

The country's major political parties temporarily suspended campaigning with only days to go before Thursday's general election.

She said: 'My understanding is that, without hesitation, wearing his normal clothes, he dived in and tried to assist, and he I'm afraid was himself severely injured but utterly heroic'.

The prime minister called for action at home where extremism may be tolerated.

Before armed officers arrived, unarmed police did their best to confront the attackers.

Add to this the five credible plots that police have thwarted during this period, and it is hard to deny that Daesh and other groups have targeted Britain for a surge in violence.

"One terrorist attack does often breed another in a bit of a way like you see clusters of suicides", he said.

Less than two weeks ago, a suicide bomber killed 22 children and adults at a concert by US singer Ariana Grande in Manchester in northern England.

The pop star returned to the city amid heightened security last night for the One Love Manchester, charity concert to raise money for the victims of the attack.

Hours earlier the area packed with bars and restaurants around the foodie magnet of Borough Market, had been a scene of panic, as people barricaded themselves into pubs and restaurants or fled through the streets. "We are in close touch with their families and it is not appropriate to say any more at this stage", he said.

"He has more important things to do", said a spokesperson for Mr. Khan, "than respond to Donald Trump's 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".

Speaking to the ABC, Inderjeet Parmar, a professor of global politics at the City University of London, doubled down on Mr Corbyn's suggestion that foreign policy was related to repeated terrorism attacks in the West.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and Russian President Vladimir Putin were among those who sent messages of condolence and made statements of solidarity.

It's the third attack this year that Islamic State has claimed in Britain, after the bombing in Manchester and a similar attack in the heart of London in March.
