London Mayor Sadiq Khan on London attackers: "The ideology they follow is perverse and poisonous and has no place in Islam."
In an interview with the BBC, the mayor had told Londoners not to be “alarmed” by an increased police presence in the city.
Khan ignored repeated attacks on him by U.S. president Donald Trump.
“There can be no justification for the acts of these terrorists and I am quite clear that we will never let them win nor will we allow them to cower our city or Londoners,” the mayor said in the interview. “Londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days. No reason to be alarmed.”
