British police know identity of London attackers

06 Juin, 2017, 10:16 | Author: Marc Bacque

London police chief Cressida Dick said that, while some of the recent attacks in Britain had global dimensions, they had a largely domestic "centre of gravity".

Police said on Monday they had released all 12 people arrested in the neighbourhood on Sunday without charge.

On May 22, Salman Abedi, a British-born suicide bomber, killed 22 people and injured scores of others at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester in northwestern England.

With the London attack dominating attention, a reduction in the number of police officers in England and Wales by nearly 20,000 during May's six years as interior minister from 2010 to 2016 shot to the top of the election agenda.

"In darkness we have a choice, to make the world a better place or let hate win", said one tweet.

On Saturday night, terrorists drove a truck into a crowd on London Bridge and then exited the vehicle to stab and slash victims nearby at Borough Market.

Police said 11 people had been detained in a series of raids following the attack, in which seven people were killed and 48 others injured.

May did not answer repeated questions from reporters on the cutbacks but said counter-terrorism budgets had been protected and police had the powers they needed.

May's main opponent, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, backed calls for her resignation over the police cuts.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack on Sunday night, although they provided no evidence for their involvement or details of the attack. Her family said she died in her fiancé's arms after being struck by the speeding van. Dick said Monday the attack was "ghastly", but that Londoners are pulling together and refusing to be cowed by extremists. Trump tweeted Monday morning. Trump also lashed out at his own Justice Department for seeking a "watered down" version of the travel ban he signed in March instead of a broader directive that was also blocked by the courts. The White House did not immediately respond to requests for that information.

The articles, the posting of the video, and the text that accompanied it - which labelled London Mayor Sadiq Khan an "embarrassment" - all came in the context of a high-profile dispute between Khan and Trump. MSM is working hard to sell it! Police are focusing on the city's many downtown bridges in an effort to deter any copycat attacks, reports the Independent.

Khan said in an interview that the "threat level remains at severe" but that there is "no need to be alarmed" by the more visible police presence on the streets.

Peter Choate, an assistant professor in social work at Mount Royal University, knew Archibald from her time there as a student. "In a split second his entire life was ripped away from him", wrote Cassie Ferguson Rowe, Ferguson's sister. She had worked successfully in the extremely tough environment of a Calgary shelter where the residents are permitted to be intoxicated when entering the facility.

May served as home secretary for six years before becoming prime minister last year, a period in which the number of police dropped by about 20,000 officers.

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

Police have foiled 18 terror plots since 2013 and are managing 500 active investigations involving around 3,000 individuals at any one time, according to two security sources who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about ongoing investigations.
