Police identify London attackers but names not released

Metropolitan Police advice to Londoners after the terror attacks

Saturday night's rampage by three knife-wielding assailants, who rammed a van into pedestrians on London Bridge and stabbed others nearby, was the third deadly terror attack in Britain in less than three months and came only days before a general election. "We have had to close police stations, sell police buildings, and we've lost thousands of police staff", he said.

Meanwhile, a former friend of one of the three terrorists claimed he had been radicalized while watching YouTube videos of the controversial USA hate preacher Ahmad Musa Jibril, and said he contacted the British authorities after becoming concerned over his friend's extremist views, according to The Telegraph, which said a neighbor also claimed she had contacted police in east London after the suspect tried to convert her children to Islam and radicalize them.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has appeared to let her guard down after she was filmed muttering a despairing remark to Malcolm Turnbull following an address to anxious Australians regarding recent United Kingdom terror attacks.

Among the injured being treated in hospital are those who confronted the attackers, including a British Transport Police officer who faced the men with only his baton.

The mayor had instead been telling London residents not to be concerned by a stepped-up police presence in the city following the attack.

"A number of people have been detained", police said in a statement after two early morning raids in east London.

One person has been released without charge, and police raids are continuing.

The first victim of the weekend's attack to be identified was named as "beautiful, loving" bride-to-be Chrissy Archibald, from Canada.

Met Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said "we need to look at our resourcing" in response to the emerging terrorism threat. She added that "additional security measures" had been installed on bridges.

The Arsenal football shirt he had been seen wearing around his neighbourhood the day of the attack matched a shirt worn by one of the suspects, who was pictured lying on the ground after the attack, fake gas canisters strapped to his torso. It also happened after the terrorist attack in Westminster and after the attack at Manchester Arena. "The country's leading TV current affairs programme should not be cancelled on Sunday before gen. election", tweeted political commentator Tim Montgomerie.

She said that her government would do more to deny this ideology the physical space to breed in the UK.

May also said Britain must do "more, much more" to fight Islamic extremism.

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the main opposition party, has slammed May for the cut in police numbers, saying that "you can not protect the public on the cheap", and promising to recruit another 10,000 police officers if he is elected into power.

According to official data, officer numbers decreased every year that she was in the post, from 2010 to 2016.

During that time, police numbers have dropped by roughly 20,000 officers, and the number of armed officers has fallen as well. They want to sow fear and division.

Everybody needs to go about their lives as they normally would.
