"It is time to say enough is enough", she said in a televised statement outside her Downing Street office, where flags few at half-mast.

"They would have known we would shoot them on sight with those vests on", he said. None of the dead were identified by name.

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said: "Armed officers responded very quickly and bravely, confronting three male suspects who were shot and killed in Borough Market". Though he was seriously injured, the officer is now stable and recovering.

The death cult claimed "a detachment of its fighters" were responsible for the attack where a van was driven into pedestrians over the bridge and people were stabbed in Borough Market.

May called for internet companies to regulate extremism, but said "safe spaces in the real world" needed to be rooted out, too.

Seven died and nearly 50 people were hospitalised.

The spokesman said Khan "is busy working with the police, emergency services and the government" to co-ordinate the response to the cowardly terrorist attack.

A picture of the man was posted on Twitter by Howard Mannella, who tweeted: "People fleeing #LondonBridge but the bloke on the right isn't spilling a drop". The proximity of the attacks and the timing seem to suggest they were coordinated, but police have not confirmed that.

The Rt Rev Alan Williams, Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brentwood, said: "I heard with horror about the bad attack in London last night, which sadly comes so soon after the bombing in Manchester". It says "a unit of Islamic State Fighters carried out London attacks yesterday".

"We need to work with allied democratic governments to reach global agreements to regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning".

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

Warner said Trump has had more than 90 days to review the procedures for admitting people from certain countries.

"We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people", Trump wrote on Sunday morning.

Meanwhile, the major political parties have suspended national election campaigning after the London Bridge terror attack.

New figures from NHS England show that of 48 people taken to hospital on Saturday night, 36 are now being cared for in central London hospitals.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with victims and their families at this time". Police said the event would go ahead as planned though security would be increased. Neighbors at the site of one raid in Barking said a man who lived there resembled one of the attackers shown in news photographs. Britain's official terrorism threat level was raised from "severe" to "critical" after the Manchester attack, meaning an attack may be imminent. "We will of course keep you updated on that", he said.

Mr Khan also accused Mr Trump of being "ignorant" about Islam and making both the USA and United Kingdom "less safe".

The London ambulance service said at least 20 people had been taken to six hospitals across the city.

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.

Armed police rushed to the scene where shots were heard and authorities urged Londoners on Twitter to "run, hide, tell" if they were caught in the attack.
