President Trump Criticized for Tweet About London Mayor Following Terror Attack

British Prime Minister Theresa May said Sunday that police had recently foiled five other plots.

Attacking people after abandoning the van, they headed to Borough Market where the pubs and restaurants were packed with Saturday night crowds, many watching the Champions League final between Juventus and Real Madrid in Cardiff.

The three attackers drove a hired van into pedestrians on London Bridge on Saturday night then ran into the bustling Borough Market area where they stabbed numerous people.

"We can not allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed", May said outside of 10 Downing Street this morning, "yet that is precisely what the internet, and the big companies that provide internet-based services provide".

The BBC is reporting that more than one person is dead after a vehicle plowed into pedestrians on London Bridge.

"I am heartbroken that a Canadian is among those killed", Trudeau said in a statement.

Trump's tweets have been heavily criticized by a number of British politicians, who are now preparing for the country's general election which is scheduled to take place on Thursday.

A man pictured calmly taking his pint of beer with him as other people fled past him during Saturday's deadly attack in London has been cast as an unlikely hero who encapsulates British humor and defiance. On March 22, five people were killed in London after Khalid Masood rammed his auto into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before fatally stabbing a policeman outside the Houses of Parliament.

Emergency officials said 48 people, including two police officers, were treated at hospitals across London.

Senator Mark Warner, a Democrat and the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told CNN that it "troubles" him to see the kinds of tweets Trump has put out in the aftermath of the London attacks.

The proximity of the attacks and the timing seem to suggest they were coordinated, but police have not confirmed that.

"I could see a whole lot of police cars, they were quite loud and were driving quite quick and it was pretty obvious something had happened ... then suddenly it was all over the news", she said. The attackers, who had a machete and large knives, began slashing at patrons, witnesses said.

Also Sunday morning, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressia Dick urged people in London to remain vigilant but said police believe they have the incident "under control".

The U.S. State Department condemned what it called "the cowardly attacks targeting innocent civilians" in a statement, and echoed Trump's readiness to provide any assistance that British authorities request. "The situation these officers were confronted with was critical - a matter of life and death - three armed men wearing what appeared to be suicide belts". Some critics say Facebook has not done enough to combat extremist propaganda or fake news from being shared. Two weeks ago, a suicide bomber blew himself up at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, in northwest England, killing 22 people and injuring dozens more.

The Islamic State has not claimed responsibility for the attacks but hours earlier a terrorist group's propaganda outlet asked would-be jihadists to carry out vehicle and knife attacks.

Richard Angell, who was in a restaurant, said he looked out and saw "a guy who is throwing a table at somebody, and it's very unclear about what is happening".
