Police say 30 people, including a young boy, were injured during the attack on a rush-hour train packed with school children and commuters.

Prime Minister May said the public should not be alarmed by armed officers on the streets, a rare sight in Britain.

In a prerecorded statement, Prime Minister Theresa May condemned the "cowardly" attack "intended to cause significant harm".

Asked about his tweet calling for a tougher travel ban, Trump said "we have to be tougher and we have to be smarter".

It was reported that around 20,000 supporters of the German club had made the journey to north London for the group stage opener. Tonight's game takes place at the Emirates stadium while kick-off is scheduled for 20:05 (GMT).

Theresa May didn't like Trump's comments.

That followed other tweets the president made on the attacks where he called the terrorists losers.

Meanwhile, British police continue to search and investigate the incident classified as a terrorist attack, in which 22 people were slightly injured by the explosion of a homemade device in a London subway vehicle. "It keeps going and going, and we have to be very smart and we have to be very, very tough - perhaps we're not almost tough enough".

Authorities in London are still investigating the attack, and it's not immediately clear who was responsible or what Trump was referring to in suggesting that the perpetrators were known to authorities. "As London has proven, again and again, we will never be intimidated or defeated by terrorism", he said.

With each half-baked tweet that comes out of his phone, Donald Trump chips away at the credibility of the presidency as an institution.

The most recent attack before Friday was a van and knife attack on London Bridge in June. We need the courts to give us back our rights. Along with advocating for a "larger, tougher" travel ban, the President also suggested shutting down the internet.

The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments on October 10 on the legality of the bans on travelers from six mostly Muslim countries and refugees anywhere in the world. "We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!"

The ban was ordered to be in effect for 90 days, during which the administration would assess vetting procedures and whether they're secure enough.
