    Leaders around the world were quick to condemn the terror attacks that left seven people dead and dozens injured Saturday night in the heart of London. Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called for "resolute solidarity" with Britain in the face of the "shocking" attacks. 

    European Union President Jean-Claude Juncker said he was monitoring the situation "with horror" and sent condolences to victims and their families. French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted that "France is more than ever at the side of the United Kingdom." 

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel released a statement that said, "We are united beyond all borders in horror and sorrow, but also in determination." She also reaffirmed her support for Britain and fighting "every form of terrorism."

    Pope Francis offered prayers for the victims during Sunday Mass, that "grants peace to the whole world and heal the wounds of war and of terrorism, which also last night, in London, struck innocent victims."
