Trump Argues for Travel Ban After Attacks Hit London

A van mowed down pedestrians as it sped down London Bridge in the British capital Saturday night, leaving bodies lying in the roadway, a witness to the incident told CNN.

Multiple witnesses reported a vehicle veering off the road and hitting several pedestrians; others also said they saw a man with a knife.

"A white van driver came speeding - probably about 50m/ph - veered off the road into the crowds of people who were walking along the pavement", she told BBC News.

Another witness, Will Heaven, said he saw people who appeared to have been hit, and one being put into an ambulance.

The US embassy in London tweeted: "Please avoid the area and monitor local news/@metpoliceuk for updates".

London Bridge underground station was closed at the request of the police.

In response to these incidents, police have posted a shelter-in-place graphic to Twitter, telling people in the areas to run or hide and to alert police when it is safe to do so.
