Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed deep grief over a knife stabbing incident at London Bridge that left two members of the public dead.
According to British media, a man wearing a suspected hoax explosive device stabbed two people to death in a terror attack on Friday before being shot dead by police on London Bridge.
Three more people were injured in the stabbing spree which revived memories of a three-man attack on London Bridge two years ago that killed eight.
Taking to Twitter, the Canadian PM wrote, “Canada stands with the UK after today’s suspected terrorist attack in London, and we’re grateful for the first responders and people who bravely intervened.”
“Our thoughts are with the victims and their loved ones”, he said.

Moreover, Scotland Yard has named the terrorist responsible for yesterday’s attack on London Bridge as 28-year-old Usman Khan.
Anti-terror police have raided a house in Staffordshire area which was linked to Usman Khan.
Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu confirmed that a man and a woman had been killed in the attack.
Usman Khan was a former prisoner convicted for terrorism offences and released last year, police said Saturday.
Police identified Usman Khan as the terrorist saying that were not actively seeking any other suspects in relation to the incident.
According to details, Usman Khan was living in Stafford and in 2012 was sentenced to indeterminate detention on the grounds of public protection with a minimum jail term of eight years.
However, in 2013 the sentence was overturned and Khan was sentenced for a 16-year fixed term.
