London attack: 12 arrested in Barking after van and knife attack

She said police know the identity of the three attackers but will not release them yet because of the ongoing investigation.

The knife-wielding assailants then took their attack to nearby Borough Market, where survivors described a hellish scene in an area packed with people enjoying a night out in bars and restaurants.

Born and raised in Castlegar, British Columbia, Archibald had later lived in Calgary, where she worked at a homeless shelter before moving to Europe to be with Ferguson. "She would have had no understanding of the callous cruelty that caused her death".

London police's Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley told a press conference the white Renault van used in the attack was recently rented by one of the attackers, and the three were wearing fake bomb vests. Seven people were killed and at least 48 others were sent to hospital.

Last June, after the deadly shooting attack on a nightclub in Orlando, Florida, Trump had tweeted: "Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don't want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance".

Gov. -Gen. David Johnston tweeted about the attack, calling it "evil and senseless".

"While our pain will never diminish, it is important for us all to carry on with our lives in direct opposition to those who wish to destroy us and remember that hatred is the refuge of small-minded individuals and will only breed more", she said.

"One case has been confirmed and the Australian concerned is in hospital, in the other case we are continuing to making inquiries", he said in a statement.

The Trump administration last week formally asked the Supreme Court, the highest court in the US, to allow the ban to take effect, arguing that restricting immigration by refugees and visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen is necessary to protect USA national security. "Londoners and people across the United Kingdom have always displayed strength and resilience in the face of adversity". A large proportion of those have involved suspects who set out to commit acts of violence similar to the attacks on Westminster Bridge and London Bridge. "This time will be no different". But they weren't able to save her, according to the family. "This is why Canada, and our allies, must be fully committed to confronting and destroying this terrorist threat".

Trump's tweets came a day after he touted his travel ban in the wake of the London terror attacks, while also pledging assistance to Britain.

Islamic State's statement from its Aamaq news agency claimed the group's "fighters" were responsible, the SITE Intelligence Group said Sunday.

Although the attackers were also dead, authorities raced to determine whether they had accomplices, and Prime Minister Theresa May warned the country faced a new threat from copycat attacks.

The killings were the second terrorist atrocity to hit the country in as many weeks after 22 were killed by a suicide bomber at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.
