As CNN reports, twenty-nine people were treated in hospital, seven of whom are still in critical condition.

Hundreds of detectives worked through the night with their investigation focused on the attacker's motivation, preparation and associates.

As it is known, an attacker acted alone yesterday and was inspired by international terrorism.

A candlelit vigil will be held Thursday evening on Trafalgar Square, not far from Westminster, to show solidarity and remember the victims, the office of London Mayor Sadiq Khan said in a statement.
