Stocks to Retreat From Records at the Open After London Terror Attacks

British Prime Minister Theresa May on Sunday blamed "evil" Islamist ideology and vowed to crackdown on extremist content online worldwide, warning that attackers were "copying one another". Police moved quickly and killed the attackers, but seven people died in the rampage, and dozens were injured, 21 of them seriously.

"We believe we are experiencing a new trend in the threat we face, as terrorism breeds terrorism", she said.

Islamic State has claimed responsibility for three attacks in Britain since March, and Ms Dick described the recent wave of violence as "unprecedented in my working life". We need the courts to give us back our rights.

New barricades on bridges were among additional security measures put in place around the British capital as the United Kingdom terrorism threat level remained at "severe".

Police said three men drove a white transit van at high speed toward London Bridge just after 10 p.m. local time, deliberately targeting pedestrians before continuing to the busy restaurant and pub district of Borough Market, which was packed with revelers enjoying the unusually warm summer Saturday evening.

On Monday, police detained "a number" of other people in the investigation.

May said after a meeting of the government's emergency committee that the threat level in the United Kingdom remains "severe" - meaning another attack is highly likely. One person has since been released without charge.

But he said authorities took no action.

The political tempo picked up again with Ms May saying opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn was unfit to handle security and Brexit.

Mr Corbyn conceded that Thursday's general election was "perhaps the best opportunity" to remove Mrs May from her post, but asked by ITV News if he backed calls for Mrs May to resign, he said: "Indeed I would, because there's been calls made by a lot of very responsible people on this who are very anxious that she was at the Home Office for all this time, presided over these cuts in police numbers and is now saying that we have a problem - yes, we do have a problem, we should never have cut the police numbers".
