Even though Mr Khan has roundly condemned the attack and said there was no reason for people to be alarmed by the sight of armed police officers, Mr Trump had said: "At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!'"

A man who lived next to a London apartment raided by police after the deadly car-and-knife terror attack said he believed his neighbor - who recently asked him about renting a van - was one of the suspects and thought he had seen him on television.

The three male attackers were gunned down by armed police in a barrage of bullets within eight minutes of the officers receiving the first report of the atrocity.

Britain's election campaign resumed in earnest on Monday with Prime Minister Theresa May's opinion poll lead narrowing and the focus firmly on her security record after an attack by marauding jihadists killed seven people in the heart of London.

Police have not released names of the victims of the attack, but foreign officials from Canada, France, Australia and Germany have said members of their countries were among those killed or injured. They said people were fleeing the area in panic.

A spokesman said Khan "has more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump's ill-informed tweet". "He was a very nice guy".

"I was terrified, of course", he said. "He held her and watched her die in his arms". He had then seen his girlfriend running towards him, holding her bleeding neck. Amid the violence and fear were stories of compassion and heroism.

"However, there was no intelligence to suggest that this attack was being planned and the investigation had been prioritized accordingly", police said.

"Doctors are happy with how he's come out the other side", they wrote.

Vowls also saw people striking back at the attackers and said he joined in.

"She is going to be OK in that way - I don't know about how she is going to be emotionally - but she is OK with everything that has happened". You've just got to get on with it.
