May: It's time to say enough is enough

"My friends and I have already agreed that we will go back to have a lovely meal and to double the tip. Evil, evil people", he told The Guardian newspaper.

"I saw this van going left and right, left and right, trying to catch as many people as he could", Alessandro told BBC radio. "It was really scary", he said. One French national was killed and four others injured, while one Canadian national was killed, according to their governments. And our security and policing plans for events are being reviewed.

Alex Shellum, who was in The Mudlark pub near London Bridge said he saw a young woman stagger in.

A photo showed one suspect lying on the ground with the canisters on his belt.

"The police were absolutely brilliant, they came in and explained the situation", patron Paul Connell told CNN".

Islamists have carried out scores of deadly attacks in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and the United States over the past two years.

A member of the public received non-critical gunshot wounds during the incident. Home Secretary Amber Rudd said Sunday that the level would remain at severe because police believe there are no perpetrators still on the loose.

Saturday's attack was the second to involve a vehicle driving into pedestrians on a bridge in London in just three months.

Jean-Yves Le Drian, France's foreign minister, said there were four French citizens injured in the London Bridge attack, one seriously. Of the more than 45 people injured in Saturday's attack, 21 are reported to be in critical condition.

"Sadly, six people have died in addition to the three attackers shot by police", Mark Rowley, Britain's top anti-terrorism officer, said.

The attack in central London came just weeks after a suicide bombing at a concert in Manchester left 22 dead and it recalled an attack in March when a man drove a auto into pedestrians near the seat of Parliament, killing five.

But less than 24 hours after the attack, there was also a palpable sense of defiance in the London Bridge area and beyond.

Less than two weeks ago, a suicide bomber killed 22 children and adults at a concert by USA singer Ariana Grande in Manchester in northern England. Grande and other stars performed Sunday night at a benefit concert for victims under tight security in Manchester.

"While we have made significant progress in recent years, there is - to be frank - far too much tolerance of extremism in our country", she said, without elaborating.

Corbyn announced that Labour would resume national campaigning Sunday evening.

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

"If we get to the point where we say, 'Privacy is not as important as staying alive, ' I think there will be some setup which will allow the government to breach privacy", he said.

"It is time to say enough is enough".

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.

Secondly, she said, new regulations were needed to reduce the space available to extremists online.

In a series of tweets that began late Saturday, Trump also pushed his stalled travel ban, mocked gun control supporters and pledged that the United States will be there to help London and the United Kingdom.
