  • London bridge attackers named: Khuram Shazad Butt and Rachid Red

The attackers' identities are known but have not been disclosed.

Khan, London's first Muslim mayor, said that the city stood in defiance against the "cowardly attack on our city, our people, our values and our way of life".

"For an officer who only joined us less than two years ago, the bravery he showed was outstanding and makes me extremely proud", said British Transport Police's Chief Constable Paul Crowther.

Police in London have named two of the three suspects in the van and knife attack near London Bridge that left seven people dead.

Both Butt and Redouane had been living in Barking, east London, police say. Redouane claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan.

On Sunday, a spokesman for the London mayor said he was working with the police, emergency services and government to coordinate the response to the attack, and had "more important things to do" than to respond to Trump.

Jibril Palomba said he and his wife anxious because the man, whom they knew as Abu Mohammed and recognized in photos of the attack, gave their children candy and preached about Islam. A Canadian and a French national were among those who died, while the 48 injured included people of many nationalities.The national health authority said 18 people remained in a critical condition.A parliamentary election takes place on Thursday and May's spokeswoman said the government was working closely with police on security for the vote.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.London Mayor Sadiq Khan, of the opposition Labour Party, was among those who raised the issue."It's just a fact that, over the last seven years, we as a city have lost 600 million pounds from our budgets".

The other attacker was named as Rachid Redouane, 30. He also used the name Rachid Elkhdar. She has not been heard from since the attacks and typically rang her mother every day.

"At 22.08hrs on Saturday, 3 June, a hired white Renault van travelled north to south on London Bridge and mounted the pavement, which collided with pedestrians before they abandoned the vehicle".

President, every day we are having a gun debate because every day 90 people in our country die from gun violence. The courts are slow and political!" he said, attacking the judiciary in a way that is rare in American politics.

Eleven people are being held after police raids in Barking on Sunday. "One of them had been reported to police because of his extremist views and may have previously been confronted by officers". Work to inform the next of kin of the victims is ongoing.

Seven people died on Saturday and dozens were injured, 21 of them critically, in the attack. May said Monday that 11 remained in custody and one was released without charge.

"We spoke about a particular attack that happened and, like most radicals, he had a justification for anything - everything and anything".

She said the U.K.'s national threat level remained at severe on Monday, which "means that a terrorist attack is highly likely".

She told BBC Breakfast the investigation was moving very quickly and the priority now was to establish if anybody else was involved in the plot.

Eight officers fired an "unprecedented" 50 rounds at the three attackers, said Mark Rowley, head of national counter-terrorism policing. However, there was no intelligence to suggest that this attack was being planned and the investigation had been prioritised accordingly. Redouane was not known to the authorities, according to the police.

Khan and Police Commissioner Cressida Dick toured the site of the attack and praised the quick police work that they said prevented further deaths.

May's Conservative Party's lead over Labour has narrowed markedly from 20 points or more when she called the election in April to a range between one and 12 points now, though the Conservatives are still expected to win a majority.
