Timeline: How events unfolded in London's latest attack

Assistant Police Commissioner Mark Rowley said Sunday that police need to establish whether others were involved in planning Saturday night's vehicle and knife attack on London Bridge and at nearby restaurants.

Police say three men drove a van into pedestrians on busy London Bridge just after 10 p.m. Saturday.

Of those, 36 remained in hospital, with 21 in a critical condition.

One Canadian national and one Frenchman were among the fatalities and seven French citizens were injured.

"He has more important things to do 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".

Yet this vehicle and knife attack in London is the third terrorist atrocity in the United Kingdom in the space of three months.

Twelve people have been arrested in Barking in east London and raids are going on elsewhere.

She warned that perpetrators are inspired to attack "by copying one another".

"The police and security services must get the resources they need, not 20,000 police cuts", he said.

He said May and Corbyn "will both say they are not playing politics with this, but they both are". "Evil, evil people", he told The Guardian newspaper. "That's because they used knives and a truck!"

An Australian was among those hospitalised, while a Spaniard was slightly wounded.

He also mocked London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who was elected a year ago and is the first Muslim to lead a major Western capital.

A vigil for the victims will take place at nearby Tower Bridge on Monday evening.

Britain has faced terror attacks in the past - be it from the IRA, or more recently, Islamist radicals - and they too have come suddenly and caused sharp bursts of shock and grief.

Grande, who headlined a benefit concert in Manchester on Sunday, alongside stars including Pharrell Williams and Justin Bieber, tweeted that she was "Praying for London". "But we got to move on". "I do think this is a matter of timing".

May said that Britain was facing a new threat from copycat attacks, and "it is time to say 'enough is enough.'" She called for global agreements to curb online extremism, said longer jail sentences might be needed for terrorism offences and argued that there is "far too much tolerance of extremism in our country".

Saturday's rampage is the latest in a string of attacks to hit Europe, including in Paris, Berlin and Saint Petersburg, and the French, German and Russian leaders sent messages of support. "If we don't get smart it will only get worse", Trump said in a tweet. "GOD BLESS!" - and highlighting his thwarted ban on travellers from six mainly Muslim countries.

Alex Shellum at the Mudlark pub said a woman had come into the bar "bleeding heavily from the neck", telling the BBC: "It appeared that her throat had been cut". The attackers, wielding blades and knives, ran down a set of stairs into Borough Market, a well-known fruit and vegetable market that's also home to popular restaurants and pubs.

"In Manchester, we had to be - the police had to be - absolutely sure that there was no additional material or explosives out there that could mean there could be a follow-up attack", she said.
