London Bridge attackers had 'planned to use 7.5 tonne lorry'


Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Cressida Dick speaks during an interview with The Associated Press at New Scotland Yard, in London Saturday, June 10, 2017.

Donald Hyslop, Borough Market chairman of trustees, said: "Borough Market is not just a collection of stalls, restaurants and pubs; it is a community of people".

Although the Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the London Bridge attack, police have said there was no evidence that the perpetrators - Pakistani-born Briton Khuram Butt, Italian Youssef Zaghba and Rachid Redouane, who had links to Libya, Morocco and Ireland - were directed by anyone else, either in Britain or overseas.

Sufia Alam, manager of the Maryam Centre at the East London Mosque, said the organisation has had reports of Muslim women being verbally abused on buses following the attack.

London Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism Command conducted a raid in east London that resulted in the arrest of a 28-year-old man on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.

Theresa May To Form UK Govt With Right-Wing Irish Democratic Unionist Party
European Union leaders fear that May's majority loss would delay the talks, which are due to begin June 19. But this isn't the first time that a United Kingdom election has led to a period of political uncertainty.

Police said Khurum Butt, the ringleader, made a booking with a haulage company, but the rental was cancelled when he failed to make the payment on time.

Thirty-six people remain in London hospitals, with 18 in a critical care.

The intended truck was smaller but similar to the one used in the Nice attack previous year that killed 86 people and injured hundreds in the resort town in the south of France. Police discovered 13 wine bottles containing flammable liquid with rags stuffed in them, essentially Molotov cocktails, and blow torches to ignite them, potentially meant for another wave of attacks. Where have they come from?

Spain's Foreign Ministry says a British autopsy concluded that Ignacio Echeverria, the Spaniard who confronted assailants during last weekend's attacks in London, died after being stabbed in the back.

And on March 22 this year, five people were killed when a man rammed his auto into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in London before stabbing a police officer outside parliament.

Champions Trophy: Best OPPO moments from England-Australia match
However, Stokes (102*) combined with Morgan (87) to pull England back from the abyss and put them on course for a win. Finch nonetheless had his highest one-day global score in more than a year, from only 64 balls with eight fours.

Although he was under low-level investigation by MI5 and counter-terrorism police, Butt was able to get a job working at Westminster Underground Station as employers are not made aware of security services' concerns when performing criminal record checks. At 1838 GMT they left and two hours later the van reached London Bridge which they drove along twice before targeting pedestrians on the sidewalk on their third run. Once across they turned around and travelled back the way they came, before turning around at the top and setting off on their final deadly journey, ploughing into pedestrians as they went.

Another said: "They (the attackers) can't harm what London is. It is this knife that police have released images of today".

Butt was also arrested for fraud last October but was about to be told by prosecutors he would face no further action.

Dick said it was common for Islamic State to make claims about attacks that it had not been directly involved in.

They are also warning the public of other similar attacks and want to hear from anyone suspicious of behaviour around the use of hire vehicles, fuel, knives and mobile phones.
