Police Release The Names Of Two Suspected Terrorists In The London Attacks

He said: "Today we mourn the loss of innocent lives". He claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan and had also used Elkhdar as a surname, police said.

She said authorities are "unable to formally identify him until the coroner's report begins tomorrow".

London police arrested 12 people in the Barking district of east London in connection with the attack and raids were continuing there, the force said. All three attackers were shot dead by police.

One of the suspects was reported to police for extremist views by a neighbor in 2015. Twelve others taken into custody have since been released.

British voters go to the polls on Thursday in a general election.

Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn criticised May for cutting police numbers and repeated his pledge to recruit 10,000 new police officers, including armed officers.

The Prime Minister was repeatedly challenged over her record as home secretary when she presided over cuts that have seen 20,000 fewer police officers on the country's street.

"We've chose to come from our mosque as a community, to say that none of this that has happened resonates with what we understand as Islam, and that we are very sorry for what has happened", she said.

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

At an election campaign event in London, Mrs May said: "Cressida Dick has said that the Metropolitan Police are well resourced - and they are, she has said they have very powerful counter-terrorism capabilities - and they do".

The carnage is the third such terror attack on British soil in three months and the second in London involving the use of vehicles as weapons. "Given the recent attacks, it looks like people were on the radar but somehow they were still able to carry out attacks". Redouane was not known to the authorities, according to the police.

The prime minister said the attack was driven by the same "evil ideology of Islamist extremism" behind the May 22 Manchester suicide bombing that left 22 people dead, and the Westminster attack in March, which killed five.

"No intelligence agency in a democratic state can have the resources or powers to monitor such a large number of suspects indefinitely".

She said providing more firearms for London police wouldn't be a sensible solution to the increased tempo of attacks, saying the strategy of having special mobile units of heavily armed officers is effective. Some residents cooped up inside all day on Sunday emerged from their homes for the first time since the attacks.

Pedestrians were struck by a van on London Bridge before attackers stabbed a police officer and revellers around Borough Market with 12in knives. Khan spoke those words in a television interview Sunday in the context of reassuring Londoners about an increased police presence they might see. "If you know Tyler, please be there for him now, and later when what happened sinks in, he's going to need us all".
