Families of London Bridge attackers speak of shock and condemn their actions

The Daily Mirror reported the man, one of three assailants who were shot dead after mowing down pedestrians with a van on London Bridge and going on a stabbing rampage at a nearby market on Saturday, has been identified by the police only as Abz.

The attackers were shot dead by eight officers who fired 50 bullets. A fitness enthusiast, Khuram Shazad Butt was already known for his extremist views among his neighbors and they have informed authorities that he was an extremist.

Mark Rowley, the Metropolitan police assistant commissioner, said the changes could cover police, MI5, communities, technology companies, the law and other policies.

According to the police, 27-year-old Butt was a British citizen originally born in Pakistan, while Redouane, 30, was both Moroccan and Libyan.

Barriers were not installed on London Bridge, which was reopened to the public in time for the start of the working week on Monday.

These emergency calls were quickly followed by reports of multiple stabbings in the popular Borough Market area on the south side of the bridge.

The terror attack marked the United Kingdom's third such incident since March.

The death toll from the attacks in London on Saturday night has now risen to eight, after another body was recovered from the River Thames. "But it is now clear that, sadly, victims came from a number of nationalities".

Mr Khan also renewed his criticism of cuts faced by the Metropolitan Police under the Tories, saying that under a new Theresa May government there would be fewer police officers and adding: "There's no doubt that fewer police officers means we are in more danger".

During raids by counter-terror police on Sunday morning, 12 people were arrested in Barking, east London - and properties in the area are still being searched.

The assault unfolded over a few terrifying minutes late Saturday, starting when a rented van veered off the road and barreled into pedestrians on busy London Bridge.

One eyewitness told BBC that the men shouted "this is for Allah" during the attack. Then two people approached another person and "began to stick the knife in. and then I froze and I didn't know what to do".

Because there have been calls made by a lot of very responsible people on this, who are very anxious that she was at the Home Office for all this time, presided over these cuts in police numbers and now is saying that we have a problem.

The Islamic gym where one of the London Bridge attackers trained said they saw nothing of concern during his time there.

Facebook on Sunday said it condemned the London attacks. It made the claim in a statement published by its Amaq news agency.

His neighbours said the Arsenal fan had been wearing the club's replica away shirt the day before the attack, matching the one worn by one of the suspects pictured lying on the ground with what appear to be canisters taped around his body.
