Canadians in London urged to exercise caution in wake of terror attack

BTP Chief Constable Paul Crowther said he had visited the officer in hospital and heard his first-hand account of the attack.

British police said on Sunday they would release the names of the three men who killed seven people in London "as soon as operationally possible", adding that searches were continuing in four properties.

Earlier Prime Minister Theresa May warned that Britain is in the grip of a spate of copycat terror plots and set out her determination to stamp out "safe spaces" that exist in the real world, saying: "There is - to be frank - far too much tolerance of extremism in our country".

Before London police or anyone else had announced that the attack was linked to terrorism - the president of the United States retweeted an unsourced blurb from Drudge.com: "Fears of new terror attack after van "mows down 20 people" on London Bridge".

May noted that the London attack was the third to hit Britain in as many months. "We stand with you all", he said.

The prime minister said Britain was seeing a "new trend" in the threat the country faces.

London's Metropolitan Police arrested 12 people in the Barking district of east London in connection with the attack and raids were continuing there, the force said.

Police say they are dealing with reports of a vehicle driving into pedestrians on the bridge, while they say they attended reports of stabbings in the Market, where shots have been fired.

Armed police reacted within minutes and three assailants were shot within the eight minutes of the first call to the emergency services.

Giving an update on the investigation outside New Scotland Yard, the Met's assistant commissioner Mark Rowley said "significant progress" had been made in identifying the attackers.

The three attackers Saturday were wearing what appeared to be suicide belts, but the belts turned out to be fake.

One of the those stabbed was a British Transport Police officer, who suffered serious but non-life threatening wounds. "He's one of our neighbors". "He had the same shaved head and beard".

A neighbour said one of the attackers had recently asked him how he could hire a van.

After the Manchester attack, most analysts said that May was the politician most likely to benefit, because she is the incumbent leader and security is usually seen as a Conservative strength. Investigators were working to determine whether others assisted them, Rowley said. "He was a very nice guy".

Richard Angell, who was in a restaurant, said he looked out, "and opposite there's a guy who is throwing a table at somebody and it's very unclear about what is happening and it turns out to be a heroic guy who saw what was happening and just bombarded these bad cowardly people with stuff".

Corbyn said Britain's democratic values must be maintained. In response, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom has called for "international agreements that regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning".

The Canadian government is advising citizens to be vigilant in the wake of the attack.

"There was a clear recognition of the evolving terrorism threat, that terrorism activity is being fueled by some degree of copycat activity". The injuries to that person were not believed to be critical, he said.

But even with campaigning suspended, May made a strongly-worded - and inevitably political - statement in front of her 10 Downing St. office, arguing that "things need to change" in the fight against worldwide terrorism. Her most specific and unnerving comment was, "We need to work with allied democratic governments to reach worldwide agreements that regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning". "All we feel here tonight is love, resilience, positivity", said Pharrel Williams, who performed alongside Miley Cyrus.
