'Terrorism Is Indefensible', UK Imams Refuse Islamic Funeral Prayers to London Attackers

The 48 injured included people from Britain, France, Spain, Australia and New Zealand, in what May called "an attack on the free world".

Police said they had to prioritise resources on suspects who were believed to be preparing an attack or providing active support for one.

British police named the third London Bridge attacker as an Italian national of Moroccan descent, and Italian officials said they had passed on their concerns about him to British intelligence officials past year.

Butt, 27, a Pakistani-born British citizen, worked for the Tube service as a trainee customer services assistant for just under six months, leaving in October previous year.

Redouane was 30 and "claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan". He also used the name Rachid Elkhdar, with a different date of birth.

Police on Tuesday named the third attacker in the weekend terror assault in London amid mounting anger, two days before an election, over how the jihadist killers had apparently escaped surveillance.

The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the brazen attack that started on London Bridge, then continued in the streets surrounding Borough Market. He is expected to survive.

Butt and Redouane were both from Barking in east London.

The attack, the third in Britain in three months, has raised questions over the government's ability to protect Britain following cuts to police numbers in recent years.

Prime Minister Theresa May warned that the country faced a new threat from copycat attacks. Dar, 18, said that intelligence agents were interviewing relatives. "One of the arrested men and one of the women were subsequently released". All others who had been arrested have been released without facing charges.

May has said the three attacks - including one on Parliament in March - weren't connected in any operational sense but were linked by what she called the "perverted ideology" of extremist Islam.

The attacks turned much attention in the election campaign to national security issues.

A statement from her family said she "believed strongly that every person was to be valued and respected".

Another neighbour said they enjoyed arguing about Arsenal and whether Arsene Wenger should remain manager. "Mainstream media is working hard to sell it".

Early Monday, Trump tweeted: "Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement".

According to the BBC, this attack differs from the one in Manchester Arena because creating a bomb requires sophisticated technical skill and operating vans and knives does not. Police stand guard on Ripple Road in east London, where officers have conducted raids after Saturday's deadly terror attack in the capital, Monday June 5, 2017.

Met Commissioner Cressida Dick is infamous for leading the July 22, 2005 operation that ended in the police execution of innocent Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes.

Of the 48 people taken to the hospital following the violence that started on London Bridge and continued in Borough Market, officials said Monday that "36 are now being cared for in London hospitals with 18 remaining in a critical condition".

Londoner James McMullan, 32, and 30-year-old Canadian Christine Archibald were the first victims killed in the attack to be named.

They said in a statement: "We grieve the loss of our attractive, loving daughter and sister".

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said a French citizen was also killed. He has been criticized for voting against counter-terrorism legislation and expressing reservations about police responding to attacks with "shoot-to-kill" tactics.
