British counterterrorism investigators searched two homes Monday and detained "a number" of people in the investigation into a van and knife attack in the heart of London that left seven people dead.

Police said they seized a huge amount of forensic material in two early morning raids in east London on 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 attackers were shot dead by the police at the scene. London's police chief has said the attackers have been identified, but the names haven't been released. One has since been released without being charged. She wouldn't say whether authorities were familiar with the men before the attack. "From Saturday until now my focus has been dealing with the aftermath of the horrific attack".

"Our British counterparts told us they don't think he was radicalised here, and we think it is probably more likely that he was trained in Syria", one said.

May referred to the three terror attacks in the United Kingdom during the last three months, saying "we can not deny that the threat from Islamist extremism is one of the gravest we face".

"While formal identification is yet to take place, detectives believe he is 22-year-old Youssef Zaghba, from east London".

"What they miss, in cutting numbers of police on the beat, as it were, is that community intelligence", analyst Clarke told the BBC.

Security has become a key issue in the run-up to Thursday's general election.

A statement from the Elysee later announced: 'The attack which struck London, days after that which took place in Manchester, is a new abominable and cowardly attack against our free society.

Her main opponent, Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, backed calls for her resignation over the police cuts. May insisted that her record was sound, saying that she had introduced a raft of anti-terror legislation as Home Secretary.

One of the London Bridge attackers was 27-year-old Khuram Butt, a British citizen born in Pakistan. Volunteer your time and labour or donate to a homeless shelter.

The family of 32-year-old Briton James McMullan said they believed he, too, had lost his life. "We got blocked in". Luckily she had a full fridge.

Mr Johnson did say he thought Mr Khan was "entirely right" to make a statement after the attacks in which he sought to calm and support Londoners. Khan and Dick were briefly heckled by a man who called for more police to be put on the streets. The Telegraph reported that he worked at Westminster tube station, just a stone's throw from Parliament, itself the victim of a terror attack in March that killed five people. Tim Farron, leader of Britain's Liberal Democrats, said Trump's attack on the mayor showed he had little regard for the "special relationship". It's unclear whether the president has conveyed his requests to the Justice Department, which he oversees, in a forum other than Twitter.

A White House spokeswoman followed up.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan's speech roused the quiet crowd of thousands into hearty applause of agreement when he spoke of his disgust of - and defiance at - the horror of Saturday's events. "Mainstream media is working hard to sell it".

Khan, the first Muslim to be elected mayor of a major Western European city, was among those who denounced the ideology behind the recent attacks.

The country's official terror threat level remains at "severe", one notch down from the highest.

The president has stepped up his calls for implementing the travel ban following the weekend attacks in London. She has been gone for 48 hours and no one has seen or heard from her. Her family in Castlegar, British Columbia, says Archibald "would have had no understanding of the callous cruelty that caused her death".

Delcros' sister Nathalie wrote an emotional plea on Facebook, where she said everyone is "terribly worried" about his wellbeing.

Although Ferguson and first-responders tried to save her life, the young woman died in Ferguson's arms. The person hasn't been identified. He tweeted that view Sunday and again on Monday.
