London Police Fired 'Unprecedented Number' of Bullets at Terrorists

Twelve people have been arrested in Barking in east London and raids are going on elsewhere.

A member of the public received non-critical gunshot wounds during the incident.

A bystander was also wounded by the gunfire, but the civilian's injuries were not believed to be critical.

6 pm: Here is Theresa May's response to the attack.

The attack comes as tech giants come under increased pressure in Europe over their policing of violent and hate speech.

The three attackers have been identified, but their names are not being released at this time. Three men left the vehicle and headed into the market, where they began stabbing people in pubs and restaurants while patrons and workers took cover and tried to help the wounded. She also says that the country's police has foiled five "credible attacks since the Westminster attack".

One of them was an off-duty officer and amateur rugby player who tackled one of the terrorists, suffering stab wounds.

Tales of heroism emerged in the aftermath, with one British Transport Police officer taking on the trio armed only with his baton before being stabbed in the head, face and leg.

Met Police Commissioner Cressida Dick praised the "extraordinarily courageous actions by officers on and off duty first on the scene" who "ran towards the danger". The three attackers were shot dead by police. "The US stands ready to provide any assistance authorities in the United Kingdom may request", she said in a statement.

Police tweeted a warning telling people in the area to run to safety, hide and then call police if it was safe to do so. May said the vote would take place as scheduled Thursday because "violence can never be allowed to disrupt the democratic process". "Defeating this ideology is one of the great challenges of our time". Eyewitnesses said they heard the men shout "this is for Allah", British media reported. "It looked to me that the van was aiming at the people". "Lots of people were screaming". Ho later turned up at a hospital's ICU, where he was unable to speak. Like many other taxi drivers, he immediately drove to the scene of the attack.

“There is no skepticism about blockchain in banking. It’s about cryptocurrencies” – Hermes Bank deputy GM J. Williams
Why? Firstly, I would like to make something clear: there is a big difference between blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. You could safely say that – at least for the coming years – blockchain will be one of the top technological trends.

British Prime Minister Theresa May on Sunday said "enough is enough", calling for more stringent measures to combat Islamist extremism. "There is - to be frank - far too much tolerance of extremism in our country".

Britain has weathered two other terror attacks in recent months. "If we don't get smart it will only get worse", he says.

The terrorists brought carnage to the streets of the capital, mowing down pedestrians with a van on London Bridge before stabbing a police officer and revellers around Borough Market with 12-inch knives. The death toll of seven didn't include the three attackers.

Some analysts see this as a last desperate bid by IS to its supporters, following multiple setbacks in the Middle East where its self-proclaimed caliphate is shrinking fast.

"He has more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump's ill-informed tweet that deliberately takes out of context his remarks urging Londoners not to be alarmed when they saw more police - including armed officers - on the streets". "There's no reason to be alarmed", he said.

Another man, named Gerard, said he saw the three attackers run through the market area attacking people in two pubs and a restaurant. At least one of the suspects appeared to be wearing a suicide bomb vest, though this was later confirmed by police to be fake.

He said May and Corbyn "will both say they are not playing politics with this, but they both are".
