8:02 am
>> after eight minutes, police killed the three suspects. here you see one of the assailants wearing what police say is a fake suicide vest. >> all of this comes less than two weeks after the horrific attack at the ariana grande concert. you're looking at the venue where in just hours, grande will perform a benefit concert. that concert going on. >> security very tight there. president trump reacting overnight, making a case for his travel ban. he said america needs it as an extra level of safety. we have team coverage this morning. george stephanopoulos is standing by. we start with terry moran at the london bridge for us this morning. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, paula and dan. it happened just behind me here. about a block away. that's borough market, and beyond it london bridge. the borough market, one of the truly distinctive, festive places of this great city. and last night,
8:03 am
terror. last night, this whole area filled with people just enjoying a summer saturday night. yet, in moments, coming face to face with terror. >> the police told us to run. >> go, go! >> it was mass panic. >> reporter: overnight, panic in the streets of london. chaos and carnage strike a summer saturday night. a deadly terrorist attack carried out in two locations. >> there was a police car. and there were sirens going off everywhere. >> reporter: the assault began shortly after 10:00 london time. a white van swerves, leaves the roadway, and starts plowing into pedestrians on the london bridge. >> we heard a crash almost. >> a loud noise. >> a lot of loud noises. >> reporter: that van coming to a stop just past the end of london bridge. steps away from the bustling borough market. police say at least three men leave the van and race toward the area. armed with long blades, they start slashing and
8:04 am
witnesses say the attackers were shouting this is for allah. >> i saw loads of people run away from the market. there were people lying on the ground. >> he went up and stabbed this girl i don't know how many times. ten times, maybe 15 times. >> get away! >> reporter: eyewitnesss to the horrifying events describing the panic as londoners scrambled to safety. >> down, down! >> we didn't know where the shooting was coming from. so we all just laid down on the floor of the cab. >> would you please leave the area? for your own safety! >> reporter: terrified crowds hustled to safety. told by police to keep their hands on their heads. officers swarming the scene, pinning down the attackers. and then in hail of gunfire, the police shoot and kill all three male suspects within eight minutes of that first call. the assailants were wearing a hoax suicide belt. seven innocent people left dead. another 48 badly injured, including a police officer.
8:05 am
we must pull together and united we will take on and defeat our enemies. >> and back now with terry moran live from the uk. we heard from theresa may right there. she's come out with forceful words this morning. tell us more about what she's saying. >> reporter: that's right, dan. prime minister theresa may said things must change. she's talking about the law. she's talking about giving more resources to security services. to beef up the monitoring of the people who end up on the watch list. she may talk about longer sentences for people who fall afoul of terrorism laws and lesser laws even if they're somehow suspected of being a danger to society. there's sorrow here. frustration. anger. the third attack in the country in the past three months. all that said, there's a special heritage and history here in london and in britain in the
8:06 am
face of violence. in the face of terror, going back through the i.r.a., back to world war ii. it's the stiff upper lip. it's for real. it is one way that people here get through these moments. as they said in world war ii, london can take it. >> they also said keep calm, carry on. terry moran, thank you very much. >> thanks, terry. this is the third terror attack in the uk since march. what is going on? we want to bring in abc's chief investigative reporter brian ross. brian, this is the third attack since march, terry just mentioned that. can you put that in context with the others? >> it's a small comfort. unlike the planning and training it took for the manchester attack, this is a low-tech terror attack. it's the kind isis has been urging its followers to carry out. get a vehicle and then use knives. we saw this on the truck attack in france. at ohio state university in this country. and most recently, in march on the westminster bridge in london
8:07 am
that one of the bombers was wearing a fake suicide vest? >> it caused panic last night, for sure. it seemed to certainly guarantee that the attackers would be shot dead by police. the police training in these cases is, if you see someone with a suicide vest, three shots to the head. we also know that isis has been telling followers in their twisted version of islam, to become a martyr in the month of ramadan, which we're in, has greater benefits. >> is there significance to the timing of the attack? but also, what is going on in the uk? >> well, the british prime minister this morning revealed they have foiled five more attacks since the westminster bridge take in march. as police carry out a series of raids this morning, they suggest they have identified some of the three terror suspects. she said there's no known connection between last night's attack and any of the others. rrorism.that terrorism breeds the british have 500 active w.or cases under way right an incredible note that shows the l
8:08 am
trying to stop these truck attacks going forward. >> terrifying way of saying it. terrorism breeds terrorism. chief investigative correspondent brian ross, thank you for coming in on a sunday morning. we appreciate it. as we mentioned at the top of the show, president trump responded to the attack overnight. tweeting -- we need to be smart, vigilant, and tough. we need the travel ban as an extra level of safety. let's bring in george stephanopoulos, who will host "this week" later this morning. right here on abc. george, good morning. >> good morning. >> let's talk about this tweet. the recent terror that we're seeing in the uk, is there any way politically or legally it's likely to help trump pass there travel ban? >> it could galvanize support. among the public or his supporters. not going to make much difference in the courts. the white house has asked the supreme court to review the lower court decisions to put the travel ban on hold. they may decide to release that ban and allow the travel ban to go forward, as they consider the underlying arguments.
8:09 am
remember, this would be the first case that the president's appointee, judge neil gorsuch is going to be deciding on. i don't think they'll be affected one way or the other by this attack in london. >> i want to talk about the relationship between the uk and the u.s. it was seemingly strained after the manchester bombing when american intelligence agencies leaked information to the american press. we have a serious terror problem. as brian just mentioned, five foiled plots in the last two weeks. how do you think this relationship is working? was this just a hiccup? >> i think it was just a hiccup. we would hope that our relationship with our closest ally, great britain, particularly on intelligence matters, would not be hindered by this. especially because of hard feelings. this does come in the wake of the president's trip to europe where the president did take on our european allies, not just on this but on the issue of the paris climate accord, the issue of nato. there has been tension there. i don't think it will hinder cooperation on issues related to terror.
8:10 am
>> george stephanopoulos, really appreciate your time on a sunday morning. i want to remind everybody, george has a big show this morning. he'll speak with susan rice about all of this. he'll go one on one with scott pruitt, epa administrator, and former vice president al gore about the president's decision to withdraw there the paris climate agreement. coming up later this morning on "this week." right here on abc. >> george and brian, thank you. here in the u.s., the department of homeland security is saying it's closely monitoring the situation and warning any americans in the uk to maintain security awareness. >> abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas is in washington with that part of the story. pierre, how are american authorities responding to the london attack? >> reporter: paula, good morning. homeland security officials say there's no specific threat to the u.s. law enforcement officials in some major cities are stepping up security. in new york city, expect to see heavily armed tactical teams. deployed at major landmarks. the governor has directed police to step up patrols in high-profile locations.
8:11 am
across new york, including airports, bridges, and tunnels, and mass transit systems. there is no specific threat. there's always concerns about copy cats in the immediate aftermath of an event like we saw in london. of particular concern are the low-tech attacks involving knives and vehicles used to kill. there's been a steady spate of notices to warn law enforcement agencies to be aware of those attacks. everyone is aware of those large truck massacres in europe. and now two vehicle attacks in london in recent months targeting pedestrians. dan? >> we want to get you to weigh in on something we've been discussing on the set. there have been tensions between the u.s. and uk after the manchester leaks. so, as far as you can tell, how are u.s. agencies working with their british counterparts? as they launch this investigation into the latest attack. >> reporter: dan, uk officials did have hard feelings over the release of those details and stopped sharing information with their american counterparts for a brief period. ultimately, the job at hand wins out.
8:12 am
and in a situation like this, trying to find out as much as they can as fast as they can about the suspects is the priority. i suspect the uk security services will absolutely take advantage of the enormous intelligence resources that the u.s. has to offer. >> the so-called "special relationship" in tact. pierre thomas, thank you. this attack comes at the start of london's tourist season. moments ago, i spoke with american tourist brad myers who was at the scene overnight. brad, thank you for joining us. i know you're on a trip of a lifetime across europe. you happened to be on london bridge overnight. can you tell us what you saw and heard? >> sure. i was taking pictures on the london bridge, viewing the tower bridge, which is a picturesque bridge on the thames river. i went to the river walk, on the north side of the london bridge. went down the stairs. about two minutes later, i heard a loud noise behind me. and saw a
8:13 am
sidewalk where i had just been two minutes previously. it was going through the pedestrian crowd that was there. it continued on down. i saw at least one person jump into the water in order to avoid it. saw people trying to get out of the way. and possibly vehicles were hit, as well. >> a horrifying scene. can you talk about the aftermath? did you go back up there after you saw what had happened? >> i walked back up the stairs. saw that at least two people were being attended to. by at least three or four passers by were looking after them. about two minutes after that, the police rushed in from the north side of london. they ran through, just speeding past. and i assume they went to where the van was in order to apprehend that person. >> so it turns out that that decision of yours to go down, to take the stairs down two minutes before the van started plowin
8:14 am
this was a close call for you. >> yes, it was. it's a chilling prospect to think a minor circumstance could have changed and i could have been right there. i doubt i could have gotten out of the way, to be honest. >> we're glad you're okay. we appreciate your time on a stressful day for you. thank you very much. >> yes, thank you. >> an invebl eyewitness account from an american there. thank you, dan. the initial shock of the attack is giving way to a different mood in the city, a city now filled with resolve. james longman is in london with how people are reacting to this attack. good morning to you, james. >> reporter: good morning, paula. londoners are waking up to their new reality this morning. another attack in their capital city. but they're showing the same resolve that they've shown before. this morning, the city of london standing strong following a third terror attack in the uk
8:15 am
>> you hear westminster, manchester, you think it could be any time. it could be us. we saw a lot of groups of people coming away crying and looking shocked. >> reporter: london's mayor, sadiq khan, echoing the words of many london residents. >> there are no words to describe the grief and anger that our city is feeling today. i'm appalled and furious that these twisted and cowardly terrorists deliberately targeted innocent londoners and visitors to our city. >> oh, my god! oh, my god! >> reporter: the threat level remains severe. >> londoners will see an increased police presence. today and over the course of the next few days. >> get away! >> get back! >> reporter: witnesses say the police response was quick and efficient. >> i could see from the restaurant. i was looking at the door. i could see loads of police officers, weapons with guard. like, we're well-guarded. but, just -- i'm not sure if -- probably it's enough. but you never know, you know? >> reporter: still, in the wake of such tragic events, londoners
8:16 am
what is your sense being in london? the feeling of londoners when they're faced with these sorts of attacks? >> we have to carry on living. it's just life as usual. >> reporter: while many of the victims are being treated at this hospital, st. thomas', just down the road the from westminster bridge behind me. of course, that the scene of the attack back in march. >> james, there's a resolute people there in london. thank you for your reporting this morning. we're going have much more on the story coming up. we turn to weather and rob marciano. looks like severe weather? >> two spots. one across parts of the northwest. and parts of the great lakes. jet stream meandering farther north. now that we're into june. these are the areas we're going to see some action. to see. we saw some action across wisconsin and michigan. today from ft. wayne, indiana. north of columbus. cleveland, pittsburgh, buffalo. detroit maybe this morning. some rain to the northeast later on. boise. missoula, montana.

message straight to republican members of congress and putting on the pressure. the star witness expected thursday is fired fbi director james comey. the democrats are hoping that he can provide some answers on whether the president pressured him to go easy on fired national security adviser mike flynn. ron? >> okay, thank you, david. david wright outside the white house. in the philippines, officials releasing new video from inside the manila resort where 37 people were killed last week. the video shows the gunman, now identified as 43-year-old jesse carlos setting fire to casino tables before heading to a storage room filled with poker chips. the police say he had a gambling problem and was more than $80,000 in debt. in san antonio, an american airlines plane bound for dallas veered off the runway and got stuck in mud. causing the airport to suspend all flights inbound and outbound for four hours. finally, the airport opened a second runway that is still under construction.

manchester and the uk. matt, we keep hearing about and seeing attacks on what's called soft targets. what can we do to protect soft targets? >> you know this is the challenge. for security officials and police departments across europe and here in the u.s. it's very difficult if not impossible to protect all soft targets. pedestrian walkways, restaurants, bars. i agree with the chief. good intelligence is the key. understanding the intentions and capabilities of individuals at the earliest possible stage so they never get to the point of being able to carry out an take like we saw last night. >> so, chief, do we have to live with a certain amount of vulnerability? >> yes, i think so. and i think people have to be
