For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
The Department of Homeland Security is closely monitoring the ongoing situation in the United Kingdom.
We are working with our interagency partners and foreign counterparts to gain further insight into reported attacks against civilians on London Bridge and in the surrounding area.
U.S. citizens in the area should heed direction from local authorities and maintain security awareness. We encourage any affected U.S. citizens who need assistance to contact the U.S. Embassy in London and follow Department of State guidance.
The Secretary has been fully briefed on the incidents and the ongoing response. At this time, we have no information to indicate a specific, credible terror threat in the United States.
We are in contact with and stand ready to assist our friends and allies in the United Kingdom as they respond, investigate, and recover.
Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by these incidents.
