Six people died in terrorist acts in London

In the aftermath of the Manchester Arena attack, the major political parties suspended national campaigning for three days.

Six people are dead after terrorists drove a white van into pedestrians on London Bridge, then leapt out and started stabbing bystanders.

Gunfire was also heard.

I was shouting at everybody, just get away from the area, stay back, just run the other way.

They then jumped out and began "randomly stabbing people" along Borough High Street at 10pm.

Mr Vowls said he threw chairs, glasses and bottles at the attackers in an attempt to stop them.

Six died in the attack and at least 30 have been taken to hospital for treatment.

One woman told Reuters she saw what appeared to be three people with knife wounds and possibly their throats cut at London Bridge at the Thames river.

Officials said the situation, particularly at Borough Market, was still unfolding Saturday night.

One man was reportedly stabbed five times in the chest; another was stabbed three times. Up to 20 "walking wounded" were given emergency first aid treatment at a hotel near Liverpool Street station.

British Transport Police reported multiple casualties following the incident at the bridge. This is a fast-moving investigation. "I don't know what to do".

She said it was a fast-moving investigation and her thoughts were with "those who are caught up in these terrible events". May's Conservative Party had been expected to win by a wide margin but recent polls have showed the race tightening. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said his thoughts were with victims after the "brutal and shocking incidents" in London. "Thank you to the emergency services".

The Metropolitan Police force declared the attacks "terrorist incidents", but there was no immediate claim of responsibility.

The attacks come days ahead of a June 8 election and less than two weeks after a suicide bomber killed 22 people at a pop concert by US singer Ariana Grande in Manchester in northern England. Abedi, born in Manchester to Libyan parents, has since been linked to ISIL.

In March, a British convert to Islam ran down people with a vehicle on Westminster Bridge, killing four, then stabbed a policeman to death outside Parliament.

The New York Police Department's Counterterrorism Bureau said on Twitter that its critical response teams had been deployed to heavily traveled pedestrian areas. Grande and other stars are scheduled to perform a benefit concert for victims Sunday night. "People were trying to help each other", the witness said.
