Terror attack at London Bridge leaves seven dead; police raids continue

The BBC on Monday reported police as saying they were aware of the identity of the three attackers, but would not be releasing details about them at this stage.

Seven people were killed when the three knife-wielding men mowed down pedestrians on London Bridge before going on a stabbing spree at the nearby Borough Market on Saturday evening.

"We were all stuck!" said Marcia Rainford, who said she was sealed into her building complex with her mother and two children. May said the vote would take place as scheduled Thursday because "violence can never be allowed to disrupt the democratic process".

She died in her fiance's arms after being struck by the speeding van on London Bridge.

Police say investigations are continuing into the identity of the third attacker.

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

"I don't wish to enter into a row between those two individuals who are I think are probably perfectly able to stick up for themselves", he said of Trump and Khan. The attackers were then confronted by the firearms officers and eight police firearms officers discharged their weapons.

No fee has been agreed for the Egypt global , but more talks between the two clubs are scheduled to take place, sources added. It does not necessarily represent the position of Liverpool Football Club. "They had opened talks in October 2013".

Butt was investigated by authorities in 2015, but they were unable to find evidence that he was planning an attack and was "prioritised in the lower echelons of MI5's investigative work".

The investigation into Butt was started in 2015, "however, there was no intelligence to suggest that this attack was being planned and the investigation had been prioritised accordingly", Mr Rowley said. IS has urged supporters to weaponise vehicles in attacks against the West. "One witness said he saw a woman stabbed '10 or 15 times" by the men, who he said shouted, 'This is for Allah'.

Mr. Butt was the attacker who wore an Arsenal shirt and was later pictured dying on the street with a fake suicide belt strapped to him. Investigators were working to determine whether others assisted them, Rowley said. A bystander was wounded in the process.

Twenty-one of the injured are still in a critical condition, according to health officials. An unidentified French citizen is also among the fatalities.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said a Canadian was among the dead.

Metropolitan police say they have searched multiple locations and have detained "a number of people". "He's one of our neighbours. He was a very nice guy".

Although she said no direct link can be drawn between the three terrorist attacks that have struck the United Kingdom in the past three months, she warned "terrorism breeds terrorism". Several days later it was lowered again to "severe", meaning an attack is highly likely.
