What we know about the London Bridge attackers

What we know about the London Bridge attackers

Ho's office is five minutes walk from London Bridge where Saturday night's terror attack happened. Redouane had claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan.

Inquiries are ongoing to confirm the identity of their accomplice, police said.

"The attack began at about 10 p.m., local time, when a van crossing London Bridge veered into pedestrians, crashing outside the Barrowboy & Banker Pub".

Police say 38-year-old David Ahner was arrested on May 26 and charged with three counts of theft over $5,000.

Neither attack seemed to be the result of any long-term planning nor, despite the claim of responsibility by Islamic State, any serious foreign direction.

Authorities in Manchester last month deemed a bombing at the Manchester Arena a terror attack as well.

The Metropolitan Police said officers entered properties in Newham and Barking and "a number" of people had been detained and spoken to.

GSLV Mark III Success Another Feather in Indian ISRO
Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mark III (GSLV-Mk III) will be launched into space at 5.28 p.m. along with GSAT-19. This dream, which India initially saw back in the 90's has finally come to fruition after more than twenty-three years.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump continued a long-running feud with London's mayor on Monday, criticizing him on Twitter for the second day in a row in the wake of the deadly van and knife attack in the city.

"Our thoughts are with those who are caught up in these terrible events", she said.

"We in this country have faced a terrorist threat throughout my life - it changed and morphed and we will change and adapt to what appears to be a new reality for us", she said.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Monday that Trump was not "picking a fight with the mayor of London at all".

"Questions are arising as to how much the police knew about the three attackers", NPR's Eleanor Beardsley reports from London. "I think, again, the President's point is something he said, frankly, back - It's been nearly two years now, a year and a half ago, when the President talked about how we have to be more committed to national security". May hit back by criticising Corbyn, a pacifist who has opposed some security legislation in parliament and expressed reservations in the past about police responding to armed attackers with "shoot-to-kill" tactics. May referred to the three terror attacks in the United Kingdom during the last three months, saying "we can not deny that the threat from Islamist extremism is one of the gravest we face".

In a statement, the prime minister thanked first responders.

Siti Farhana Sheikh Yahya, 24, said there was more reason than ever to show solidarity against acts of terror. Police raids are continuing. "Their names would be released as soon as operationally possible", the department said in the early hours of Monday. Eighteen people remained in a critical condition. Met Police said two of the 12 arrested have been released.
