Timeline: How events unfolded in London's latest attack

Six people were killed in a terror attack in London late Saturday before police shot dead three attackers, London Metropolitan police confirmed in the early hours of Sunday morning.

But Labour complained she was getting involved in political debate on a day when the parties had agreed to halt election campaigning until the evening - before leader Jeremy Corbyn denounced her record on dealing with the terror threat, accusing her of denying resources to the police and security services.

She later added: "The last thing we need is people overreacting or beginning to take out their frustrations on other people in other communities or in their own communities".

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.

Accounts emerged of people trying to barricade themselves in a pub while others tried throwing tables and other objects to fend off the attackers. It remained closed off Sunday as police urged residents and tourists to stay away. Terrorism struck at the heart of London, police said Sunday, after a vehicle veered off the road and mowed down pedestr.

A neighbour said one of the attackers had recently asked him how he could hire a van.

The president notes the attackers used a van to slam into pedestrians and then assaulted people with knives. "We have declared a major incident", the statement said.

Kimberley Del Toro said that her daughter had been unable to speak since sustaining the wound.

"As a country, our response must be as it has always been when we have been confronted by violence".

London Bridge and the adjacent train station, as well as nearby Borough subway station, were still closed.

Witness Shimma Ali, 32, said it was terrifying to see dozens of armed officers in the street.

Saturday night's attack came just days ahead of the election.

His injuries are not thought to be life threatening, but he is believed to be in a serious condition, the Telegraph reports.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said he was "appalled and furious that these twisted and cowardly terrorists deliberately targeted innocent Londoners" and tourists.

They continued: "Finally after much heartache and sadness we are in a position at last to bring our babies home where they belong".

"My thoughts are with everyone affected, and I'd like to thank the fearless men and women of our emergency services who were first on the scene and will be working throughout the night", Khan wrote via Facebook.

A large area on the south bank of the River Thames remained cordoned off Sunday, and police told people to avoid the area. Trump said in a tweet.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and Russian President Vladimir Putin were among those who sent messages of condolences and made statements of solidarity. "Our prayers are with all in London". Eight officers fired a total of 50 rounds at the attackers, police said.

"Two men said 'help me, ' they had gunshot or stab wounds on their backs and the blood was flowing", Ansah said.

Britain's official terrorism threat level was raised from "severe" to "critical" after the Manchester attack, meaning an attack may be imminent.
