London attack suspects named by United Kingdom police


A vigil will be held on Monday evening near London Bridge in honour of the victims of the attack, which took place at around 10pm, while a minute's silence will take place at 11am on Tuesday.

Another of the attackers has been named by police as Rachid Radouane, 30, from Barking.

She also spoke fondly about her brother, calling him "generous and caring". "This is a passing time for us".

"Khuram Shazad Butt was known to the police and MI5". "The other [suspect], Rachid Redouane, was not known".

"It was wrong what he was doing", Gasparri said. "I got very angry". He said the vehicle was seen going the wrong way down a one-way street and was later seen speeding off, followed closely by a small red auto.

A second attacker was named by police as Rachid Redouane.

Mimbo said Butt had grown a longer beard and worn traditional Islamic dress more often over the two years he had known him, but showed no sign of radicalisation.

Authorities also faced scrutiny over what they knew about the alleged perpetrators of the attack in which the three men rammed a van into pedestrians on London Bridge and went on a stabbing spree in nearby Borough Market. The three men also wore fake suicide vests.

"The police are working hard to establish the identity of all those who were tragically killed or injured in the event on Saturday night", May added. Twelve others taken into custody have since been released.

Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, when asked if he would call for May's resignation because of cuts she made to policing when home secretary, said "indeed I would".

Nickie Aiken, leader of Westminster Council, said she believes the Westminster Bridge barriers should be permanent installations.

"There's an election on Thursday, that's the chance", he said, citing an "appalling" cut in police staffing levels.

The Brahmins" Associations have raised objections over the use of Namakam and Chamakam that are used in praising Lord Shiva. A leading daily reported, "These days, filmmakers are showing the Brahmin community in a very negative and poor light.

May faced a barrage of questions Monday on deep cuts made to police numbers in the United Kingdom while she was Home Secretary.

But May defended her government's stance on the issue, saying that her Conservative government had protected police budgets.

In that spirit, her fiancé, Tyler Ferguson, and his family said they plan to start a charity in her name. "One witness said he saw a woman stabbed '10 or 15 times" by the men, who he said shouted, 'This is for Allah'.

It was the third attack in as many months where suspects had been on the radar of British authorities.

Metropolitan Police said 12 people have been detained in connection with Saturday's attack, though two of them were since released.

On March 22, five people were killed in London after Khalid Masood rammed his auto into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before fatally stabbing a policeman outside Parliament.

It was lowered once intelligence agencies were comfortable that this wasn't the case.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan gave a short speech decrying the attackers who had brought carnage to the capital.

Both men lived in Barking, an ethnically diverse part of east London where police carried out several raids on Sunday and Monday.

To applause and cheers, Khan described himself as "a proud and patriotic British Muslim" and coldly slapped down those who invoked Islam to justify acts of murder.

Before holding a minute's silence, Khan, the first Muslim to be elected mayor of a major west European city, said: "I want to send a clear message to the sick and evil extremists who commit these ugly crimes".

Richard Barrett, former global counter-terrorism chief at MI6, responding to her comments in a column saying that May had overseen the development of the Prevent counter-terrorism strategy, yet the terrorist threat "is indisputably greater now than it was in 2001".
