Hillary Clinton defends London mayor after Trump tweets

Zaghba, who was said to be born in Morocco to a Moroccan father and an Italian mother, was stopped at Bologna's Marconi airport on March 15, 2016, while he tried to take a flight to Turkey. He was allegedly on his way to Syria and was carrying only a backpack.

"A very high priority for us is to try to understand whether they were working with anybody else", she told BBC television.

British police and security services had previously investigated one of the Islamist militants who carried out Saturday's (June 3) attack in London, but with resources scarce, he was not deemed enough of a threat to warrant close monitoring, police said on Monday.

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said police and MI5 had downgraded the investigation because "there was no intelligence to suggest that this attack was being planned".

Australian media reported that Boden was 28 and from Loxton in southern Australia. Another Australian woman, Sara Zelenak, has been reported missing since the attack.

On Monday night police identified the second of the two attackers as Rachid Redouane, 30, who had claimed to be Moroccan or Libyan, and also went under a different name - Rachid Elkhdar - with a different date of birth that made him five years younger.

Meanwhile, just over a mile away on Barking Road in East Ham there was heavy armed police presence but Scotland Yard was unable to say whether it was linked to the earlier arrests.

It was lowered once intelligence agencies were comfortable this wasn't the case.

Khuram Shazad Butt and Rachid Redouane were named on Monday.

Ordinary Londoners also helped to chase the attackers away. Ambulance workers, many of whom treated the wounded in Saturday's attack, gathered outside their headquarters alongside Mayor Sadiq Khan.

Dozens of people gathered in driving rain at the end of London Bridge, where a growing mound of flowers sits beside a police cordon. Then after having abandoned the vehicle, they began stabbing passers-by.

The three marauding knifemen, clad in fake bomb vests, flung the van doors open and leapt into the streets, lunging at passersby with long blades.

The Islamic gym where Butt worked out said Tuesday they had seen nothing of concern during his time there. "We've lost thousands of police staff", he said.

On Saturday night, three men drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge.

Butt's neighbors also said that he had previously worked for a branch of the fast food chain KFC, as well as London transport operator Transport for London (TfL). "London stands in defiance against this cowardly attack and our city and our people and our values and our way of live", he said.

The friend described seeing Echeverria for the last time lying on the floor after confronting one of the assailants.

One neighbour, Assim Uddin, said Mr. Butt had recently become more devout, cleaning up his appearance and swapping casual clothes for more traditional garments. Authorities suspect Butt was radicalized in the United Kingdom and not in Pakistan, the newspapers said.

Hannah Stuart, author of Islamist Terrorism, a definitive analysis of United Kingdom attacks and offences, said: "Al-Muhajiroun is obviously very well known to both the police and to MI5".

Twelve people arrested as part of the investigation have since been released without charge.
