Police name two London attackers as Khuram Butt and Rachid Redouane

The Telegraph and other news outlets reported that Archibald was struck by the van driven by the attackers and died in her fiancé's arms.

No arrests had been made, police said.

Butt and his two accomplices drove a hired van into pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing people in the area around Borough Market in an attack which began at 9.58pm BST.

British police investigating Saturday's attack are working to establish whether the militants were supported by anyone else, the head of the city's police force said on Monday.

He is alleged to have been an associate of the hate preacher Anjem Choudary and appeared in a 2016 Channel 4 documentary about British Islamic extremists, The Jihadis Next Door.

Redouane was 30 years old and had claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan.

Butt was previously known to police and the domestic spy agency, MI5.

Khan hits back later when asked by Britain's Channel 4 News if he thought Trump's state visit to the United Kingdom should be called off.

London's police chief has said the attackers have been identified, but the names have not been officially released.

The Metropolitan Police opened a casualty bureau for those anxious about the whereabouts of people they know.

Mr Rowley said there had been no intelligence to suggest Butt was planning a terrorist act and no evidence that he had committed any terrorist offences. "I see no reason to rescind it", he said Monday, according to Reuters.

Rowley added: "At any one time MI5 and police are conducting around 500 active investigations, involving 3,000 subjects of interest".

"One of the individuals who was stabbed in the attack came into the pub and so I was getting messages from them and you're just trying to figure out who's where, is everyone OK", Cook said.

One acquaintance, who said the man was a "wonderful guy", recalled the man playing football in the park with him and his children.

May hit back by criticising Corbyn, a pacifist who has opposed some security legislation in parliament and expressed reservations in the past about police responding to armed attackers with "shoot-to-kill" tactics. The telephone numbers are 0800 096 1233 and 020 7158 0197.

A vigil was held at Potters Field Park near London Bridge also yesterday to remember the victims.

Khan had said on Sunday morning that people would see an increased police presence on the streets of the capital and should not be alarmed by that. We will defeat you. "You will not win".

One person was heard wailing as first responders treated a bloodied victim who was laying on the ground.

A book of condolences will open on Tuesday at Southwark Council's headquarters in Tooley Street.

Prime Minister Theresa May came under pressure from the media and the opposition Labour Party on Monday over cuts to police funding during the years when she was interior minister.

British police have named the third London attacker as Youssef Zaghba, a Moroccan-Italian who is reported to have been stopped at an airport in Italy on suspicion that he was bound for Syria.

"The Conservative plans mean another £400m of cuts to the Met", he said.

One sign simply stated: "Terrorism has no religion" while another read 'Shaken but strong....and so so sorry that this happened in my city, my home - a Londoner'.

Foreign secretary Boris Johnson insisted police numbers "remained high" and that the security services did an "incredible job at keeping people safe".
