London attack: More detentions in hunt for accomplices

"We will change and adapt to what appears to be a new reality for us", she said.

Imams and religious leaders from across the country and a range of schools of thought came together to issue a public statement condemning the recent terror attack in London and conveying their pain at the suffering of the victims and their families.

Seven people were killed on June 3 and 48 injured when Butt and two other men drove a white van into crowds on London Bridge, and then got out and stabbed people in restaurants and bars in Borough Market.

"We spoke about a particular attack that happened and like most radicals he had a justification for anything and everything and that day I realized I needed to contact the authorities", the friend said to the BBC.

Police arrested 12 people in London's Barking district following the attack, though one was later released.

On Sunday, more than 24 hours after the attack occurred, the Islamic State terror group claimed responsibility for the attack.

"The British police and the MI5 began investigating Butt intensively as part of a major drive to dismantle and destabilise al-Muhajiroun, a grouping of extremists in the U.K. supportive of the ISIS", U.K. counter-terrorism officials told CNN.

The Italian daily Corriere della Sera reported Tuesday that Youssef Zaghba had been stopped in Italy while trying to go to Syria in 2016.

Police have also been guarding the capital's main bridges in order to stave off any potential copycat attacks.

Many people are now questioning whether it is safe to travel to London in light of the attack on the busy London station.

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". He also urged residents to remain calm, even as police presence in the city is heightened over the last several days, telling Londoners there was "no reason to be alarmed" by the increase in security.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said questions would need to be asked about what the police knew about Butt. However, police added there was no intelligence to suggest an attack was being planned.

"They chased me, one of them did", he said.

"The three attackers were shot dead".

Armed police officers arrived at the scene within eight minutes of receiving the first emergency call, and paramedics arrived just two minutes later to treat wounded individuals.
