UK police name two London attackers, say one previously known to them

UK police name two London attackers, say one previously known to them

London's Metropolitan Police on Monday released the names and photographs of two of the men.

Butt was 27 and a British citizen born in Pakistan.

A second attacker was named by police as Rachid Redouane.

The events unfolded Saturday night around 10 p.m. when a van mowed down pedestrians along the London Bridge. He is expected to survive.

Anti-terror raids are continuing across east London as authorities try and determine if they acted alone.

Police raided a number of properties in Barking and Newham in the days after.

"A number of people have been detained and are at present being spoken to", the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

"We have to keep her name alive so it makes an impact in the world", said Mark Ferguson, Tyler's brother. "One whole day", she said. The three men also wore fake suicide vests.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn voiced support for those calling on May resign because of her role in reducing police staffing, but he said the best remedy was to vote her out. "Then I heard shooting and I saw an American guy get shot in the head".

Dick said the attack was "ghastly", but that Londoners are pulling together and refusing to be cowed by extremists.

In a Sunday tweet, Trump appeared to mis-characterise Khan's remarks by suggesting the mayor had said there was "no reason to be alarmed" about the attack itself.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan gave a short speech decrying the attackers who had brought carnage to the capital. "MSM is working hard to sell it!"




In a notable contrast to Trump's attack, the acting USA ambassador in London, Lewis Lukens, commended Khan for his "strong leadership".

The attackers rammed pedestrians with a van before launching frenzied stabbings in the market.

Tales of heroism emerged, with one British Transport Police officer taking on the attackers armed only with his baton before being stabbed in the head, face and leg.

One of the victims in Saturday's attack was identified as Chrissy Archibald, a Canadian who had moved to Europe to be with her fiance.

However, we have built up an extensive profile of Khuram Butt, his family life and career. She is not believed to be a New Zealander.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said a French citizen was also killed.

Network Rail said London Bridge rail and London Underground stations reopened at 5am but the rail station will be exit only.

Security had become a battleground issue ahead of Thursday's general election following the Manchester bombing last month, in which 22 people were killed as they left an Ariana Grande concert.

Chartered accountant Usman Saifi, 36, of Putney, south west London, was among a group of Muslims who mingled with the crowd wear bold blue t-shirts which read I Am A Muslim Ask Me Anything.

"Himes also warned that Trump is "damaging the national security of the United States". Masood was shot dead by police. Abedi died at the scene.

"Our thoughts (and) prayers are (with) the victims, courageous first responders (and) all the people of London", Pence wrote.
