Trump slams London mayor, uses terror attacks to promote his

Twelve people have been arrested in Barking in east London and raids are going on elsewhere. More homes in the area were being searched.

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said eight firearms officers discharged an "unprecedented" 50 rounds after storming into Borough Market and finding three men having stabbed members of the public and wearing what appeared to be suicide vests.

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

Armed only with just a baton, the unnamed officer tackled the attackers and suffered injuries to his head, face and leg.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said on Twitter that "we are all shocked and angry today - but this is our city".

"You will also see increased physical measures in order to keep the public safe on London's bridges", Asst.

A spokesman for Khan responded, calling Trump's tweet "ill-informed". Trump tweeted Saturday after the attack.

On Sunday, he revisited his frequent campaign against "political correctness" and said the U.S. must "get down to the business of security for our people".

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

Vowls also saw people pelting the attackers, and said he joined in himself. K., we will be there", he said, adding, "WE ARE WITH YOU. "We are working with our inter-agency partners and foreign counterparts to gain further insight into reported attacks against civilians on London Bridge and in the surrounding areas".

"It was horrific", he said.

It was the third attack in Britain in less than three months.

He said that he helped a man and his partner, even taking the woman into his arms because she was too upset to walk properly.

"I believe in many ways the Muslim-American community is better integrated into our society".

"Our officials will continue to provide every assistance they can to Australians affected by this shocking attack and to their families", he said.

After the London attack in March, he said the same thing about safety in the city.

For the second time in two weeks, Britain's election campaign paused Sunday for grief and reflection in the aftermath of a deadly attack - and the issue of security vaulted back to the top of the political agenda. It follows a separate incident in March when pedestrians were hit by a vehicle on Westminster Bridge, and an attack in May in which concertgoers in Manchester were assaulted by a suicide bomber. The Islamic State said a "soldier" from the group carried out the attack.

Geoff Ho, business editor for the Sunday Express newspaper, said he was stabbed in the neck after he tried helping a bouncer targeted by the attackers. ISIS claimed responsibility but that claim can not be verified.

The attack began shortly after 10 p.m. Saturday, in what quickly became a terrifying night in Central London, as the sirens of police cruisers and ambulances wailed into early morning.

Opinion polls have shown Corbyn's Labour catching up fast with May's Conservative Party, putting into doubt her gamble that a snap election would boost her majority. May said the vote would take place as scheduled Thursday because "violence can never be allowed to disrupt the democratic process".
