'We don't scare,' USA defense secretary Mattis says after London attack

Seven people were killed and at least 48 injured in terror attacks on London Bridge and Borough Market.

Police believe they know the identity of the three attackers and have taken 12 people into custody in a series of raids across east London in an investigation involving thousands of officers, she added.

Her response reflects the sweeping response from Australian citizens who are regularly inundated with despairing news of savage acts committed against innocent members of the public in the name of religion, with three high profile incidents in the United Kingdom in recent months.

"It is now clear that, sadly, victims came from a number of nationalities".

Condemning the terror attack, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said: "I am appalled and furious that these twisted and cowardly terrorists deliberately targeted Londoners and visitors to our city who were just enjoying their Saturday night".

London police are working on the hypothesis that the authors of the attack could have belonged to a larger terrorist cell.

She also said Britain must do "more, much more" to fight Islamic extremism, which she called "an evil ideology" that perverts Islam and perverts the truth.

"At around 4.15 on Monday. officers from the Met's Counter-Terrorism Command investigating the London Bridge terror attack entered two further addresses - one in Newham and another in Barking. If we don't get smart it will only get worse", Trump said.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack on Sunday night, although they provided no evidence for their involvement or details of the attack.

In an appearance on NBC's "Today Show", Conway said people should pay attention to what the president is doing, saying people in England had tried to inform authorities about the terrorists before the attacks happened.

Le Drian said that in addition seven French nationals were taken to hospital, four of whom were in a critical condition, while another French national was unaccounted for. Three men exited the vehicle and began a stabbing rampage.

Mr. Trump's latest missive at Khan was part of several Monday morning tweets from the president.

The parties are to due to set out their security credentials, while Prime Minister Theresa May has been chairing a meeting of senior ministers and security chiefs at the government's emergency Cobra committee this morning.

"A lot of people are saying, this is actually the way to go, but it's very hard to do and very under-resourced as well", he said.

Earlier, Mr Trump criticised London's mayor Sadiq Khan after he sought to reassure people about a stepped-up police presence on city streets.
