Sadiq Khan condemns 'perverse ideology' of London Bridge attackers

06 Juin, 2017, 09:50 | Author: Come Portier

Khalid Masood, who launched a deadly assault in Westminster in March, had previously been investigated but he was a "peripheral figure" who was not being looked into at the time of his rampage.

Seven victims were killed and dozens were injured Saturday night in what Khan called a "barbaric" attack.

British police are stretched by the number of people they believe could potentially commit an act of terrorism. It wasn't clear if that man was Butt, Redouane or the yet-unnamed third attacker.

Trump said he had spoken with British Prime Minister Theresa May to express America's "unwavering support" and offer USA assistance as the British government works to protect its citizens and bring the guilty to justice.

The Metropolitan Police also said in a statement that specialist officers were working with families and the coroner to identify those who died in the attack.

All of it happened in just eight minutes, and though police have won praise for their response, it has led to a political fight certain to dominate the waning days before Thursday's national elections.

May faced questions from reporters on Monday over whether she regretted cutting police numbers by around 20,000 during her time as interior minister from 2010 to 2016.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said he supported those calling for May to resign because of her role reducing police staffing during her tenure as home secretary, though he said the best remedy was to vote her out.

May also said police and counter-terrorism operations are well-funded despite cuts to police staffing levels.

Through the latter he turned the lives of an upper middle-class African-American family into a groundbreaking TV sitcom. She was an assistant to his agent, Feden said. "At a certain point, he invited her over to discuss her career".

Trump accused Khan, the first Muslim mayor of the city, of offering a "pathetic excuse" for remarks that the USA president misinterpreted about policing in response to Saturday's attack that left several people dead.

May said Corbyn is unable to guarantee Britain's security at a time of such increased threats.

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

Most of the London Underground stations on Monday reopened in the neighbourhood where the attack took place, allowing normal life and commerce to resume after more than 24 hours of lockdown.

Thousands attended a vigil on Monday evening to honour the victims outside London's City Hall, close to London Bridge.

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said Butt was known to the security services, but there was no evidence of "attack planning" by him. Speaking to the Telegraph, Erica Gasparri said that she went to the authorities after her son came home and told her he wanted to be a Muslim.

A van drove into people near the London Bridge on Saturday night while stabbing incidents were reported from nearby Borough Market.

Police said they had seized a huge amount of forensic material in two early morning raids in east London Monday, as part of their efforts to determine if the three men who carried out Saturday's attack were part of a wider network.

The man, left, has not been named publicly but reportedly appeared in the documentary about British jihadists.
