Police name London terrorists

The attackers were shot dead by police.

At least half a dozen polling companies show leads of anywhere from one to 12-point leads for the Conservatives over Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said on Tuesday he saw no reason to cancel Donald Trump's state visit to Britain after the USA president criticized Mayor Sadiq Khan's response to the London Bridge killings.

Khuram Shazad Butt was 27 and a British citizen born in Pakistan, police said in a statement. He was known to police and the domestic spy agency MI5 but, with resources scarce, had not been deemed enough of a threat to warrant close monitoring, police said.

Trump accused Khan - London's first Muslim mayor - of offering a "pathetic excuse" for comments that the U.S. president earlier misconstrued about policing in response to Saturday's attack, which left seven people dead.

Her family said she died in the arms of her fiance, Tyler Ferguson, on London Bridge. She said more must be done to combat "bigotry and hatred".

Hundreds of people joined a vigil in central London late Monday for the victims of the attack as Mayor Sadiq Khan said the city "will never be cowed by terrorism". He was not a police or MI5 subject of interest.

During a round of media interviews, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson faced a barrage of questions about whether there had been security failures and about past police cuts. If we recognize this is a jihadist insurgency, then we have to recognize that we have to succeed in being able to isolate the jihadist insurgents from the communities they seek to recruit.

Islamic State, which is losing territory in Syria and Iraq to an offensive backed by a US -led coalition, said its militants were responsible for the attack, though it is unclear what links the attackers had to the group.

Earlier Monday, Prime Minister Theresa May said she thought Khan was doing "a great job", after President Trump derided and misrepresented the London mayor's attempt to calm Londoners after the attack.

They said of Mr Khan: "He has risen above this crisis of death and destruction, as mayors continue to do, to alleviate fear, to bring comfort to his people of London and to give support to the first responders who continue to protect, defend and provide emergency care to his people of London".

He was shot and killed by police.

"Specialist officers are working with families of victims and the Coroner to identify those who were killed in Saturday's attack at the appropriate time", the statement added.

"The government's argument remains clear: that national security in the digital age requires bulk data retention and targeted access to the full spectrum of modern communications technology, and that new legislation "dramatically increases" safeguards on privacy and oversight", said Dr. Joel Faulkner Rogers, an Associate Fellow at the London-based Royal United Services Institute and the academic director at pollsters YouGov, in a blog. Twelve people who were arrested in Barking on Sunday in connection with the attack have been released without charge.

The second suspected attacker was believed to be Rachid Redouane, 30, who had "claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan" and used a different name and date of birth.

He lived in a flat in Barking, east London, with his wife and two children. On Monday, James' sister, Melissa McMullan, told Sky News, "This morning we received news from the police that my brother's bank card was found on one of the bodies from Saturday night's brutal attack".
