Several People Injured After Van Mows Down Pedestrians in London

Police also say they're responding to another incident in the Vauxhall area, over a mile away.

Nick Brandon of British Transport Police said the force had received reports of "multiple" casualties.

The British Prime Minister's office said May was being regularly updated on the situation, and the White House said President Trump has been briefed. To the people of Britain: "you are in our thoughts and prayers", Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne tweeted.

Several people were reported injured in three incidents on Saturday night - in London Bridge, in nearby Borough Market and Vauxhall - with armed police of Scotland Yard deployed in the area teeming with tourists and residents enjoying the weekend night out.

At 10.08 p.m. BST Saturday night (5.08 p.m. ET), London Metropolitan officers responded to reports of a vehicle colliding with pedestrians on London Bridge.

British Prime Minister Theresa May described the attacks as "dreadful".

Twenty casualties in terror attacks on London Bridge
Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed the "terrible incident in London" was being treated as "a potential act of terrorism ". Police in riot gear filled the streets and told pedestrians and reporters to run and leave the area as fast as possible.

Multiple ambulances were sent to the scene with the first team arriving within six minutes, according to the London Ambulance Service.

52-year-old Khalid Masood mowed down people injuring as many as 40 on the Westminster Bridge in a terror attack on London and stabbed a police officer to death as he tried to enter the U.K. Parliament. The number of people being treated at hospitals was revised upward to more than 30, but, we don't know the extent of their injuries. Police say they're responding to an incident there and another at Borough Market, a busy area of pubs and restaurants nearby.

Responding officers shot and killed three male suspects, police say. Plenty of people have tweeted out images and videos from the various scenes, however, highlighting what things look like in close proximity to the trio of reported incidents.

An eyewitness tells Sky News he saw people who seemed to have been run over and people being placed in an ambulance covered in blankets. She said police were shooting. Police officers yelled at people to run from the area.

The force has tweeted a warning telling people in the area to run to safety, hide and then call police if it is safe to do so.

"We don't yet know the full details, but this was a deliberate and cowardly attack on innocent Londoners and visitors", Khan said.

Kabul Funeral Bombing: Full Story & Must-See Details On The Deadly Blast
At least six people have been killed in three explosions at a funeral in Afghanistan's capital Kabul , the interior ministry said. This followed a powerful truck bomb attack in the city on Monday that killed 90 people and wounded more than 450.

He told BBC Radio 5Live: "It veered to the right and people were trying to run away from it". "And then there were nearly hundreds of people coming inside".

London Bridge, which crosses the River Thames in London, was closed in both directions.

Witnesses report a vehicle hitting pedestrians and injured people on the ground.

The incidents in London come less than two weeks after 22 people were killed in the northern city of Manchester when a suicide-bomber detonated explosives as fans were leaving a concert by pop singer Ariana Grande. After that attack, Britain's official threat level from terrorism was raised to "critical", meaning an attack may be imminent.

British police say they are dealing with an "incident" on London Bridge.
