World leaders have condemned Saturday's terror attack in London which left six people dead and more than 30 injured.

US President Donald Trump tweeted: "Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the UK, we will be there – WE ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS!"

Mr Trump also called for his travel ban on visitors from six predominantly Muslim countries to be upheld by US courts, where it is being challenged.

President Emmanuel Macron said France was more than ever at Britain's side.

"In the face of this new tragedy, France is more than ever at Britain's side. My thoughts go out to the victims and their loved ones."

Two French citizens were injured in the attack, one seriously, Mr Macron's office said in a statement.

Commonwealth leaders also rallied round the UK.

"Awful news from London tonight. We're monitoring the situation," said Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Twitter.

Australia's Malcolm Turnbull said: "Prayers and resolute solidarity are today as always with the people of Britain in the face of the shocking terrorist attacks in London."

"New Zealand's thoughts are with the victims of today's attack," said Prime Minister Bill English. "Too many lives are being taken by terrorists set on inflicting pain and suffering on innocent people."
