Report of multiple casualties in incident on London Bridge”

UPDATE 7:10 p.m.: LONDON (AP) -Police declare vehicle, knife incidents on and near London Bridge "terrorist incidents".

BBC has confirmed through police sources that more than one person died on the London Bridge.

London Ambulance Service took at least 20 people to six hospitals after treating a number of people at the London Bridge.

The witness, who was doing a night photography class on London Bridge, said he saw the van veering on and off the pavement on the bridge.

He added that "it did not look like an accident", adding it was clear that police "thought they were responding to something far more serious than a road traffic accident".

Police say they are working with Royal Naval Lifeboat Institution to evacuate public from the London Bridge incident.

London police help escort people away from the scene of an apparent attack near London Bridge. But they said later that turned out to be an unrelated stabbing.

Route 66 Casino, a casino operated by Laguna Pueblo, announced Tuesday that it was canceling a July 22 performance by Griffin. In a music video, Snoop Dogg shot a Trump-look-alike clown with a toy gun that released a flag that said "bang".

The BBC reports police are searching for three suspects who could be armed, according to Reuters.

Details were emerging in the early hours of the United Kingdom's Sunday morning about what we now know are two "terrorist incidents" in central London.

London Bridge is closed in both directions and the London Bridge rail station has also been closed.

On social media, people reported being told to go into bars and restaurants and and take cover under tables, as fears spread of attacks similar to those that have taken place in Paris and Brussels, as well as in Manchester just a week ago.

British prime minister Theresa May is being briefed on the incidents, along with US President Donald Trump.

The U.K. has already been reeling from the May 22 attack in Manchester at a Ariana Grande concert that killed 22 people.

A witness told Reuters she saw people with apparent knife wounds on the bridge.

She said that among the injured was a French woman who told her she did not know where the two people who had been with her were.

It is also confirmed that there have been several injuries as a result of a van hitting pedestrians on the capital's landmark bridge. According to new reports, an eyewitness has reported a man entered an eatery in the Burrough Market and stabbed at least two people.

At nearby Borough Market there were reports of three men jumping out of a van with long knives who then began stabbing people.

"More police came over, I guess they were on radio or something because in around like two or five seconds they shot all the three men down".

Pence also tweeted, "Our thoughts & prayers are w/ the victims, courageous first responders & all the people of London". That witness said the van hit five to six people.

After ramming the vehicle into a barrier outside the Houses of Parliament, the driver, 52-year-old Khalid Masood, got out and stabbed a police officer to death before being gunned down by responding officers.

Mark Roberts, a witness, told CNN that he was on the bridge when the white delivery van came barreling down the road.
