British Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday said the three terrorists responsible for the London attack have been identified and their names would be revealed soon, even as police conducted fresh raids in two more places.
Redouane, 30, who also lived in Barking, claimed to be Moroccan-Libyan. He also used the name Rachid Elkhdar, with a different date of birth.
Police have said they need a major re-think about how to counter such plots by people who had come onto their radar but were not considered a serious threat. The modus operandi of the attacks shows they are highly localised and carried out by radicalised individuals with little or no centralised networks, sophisticated weapons or bombs. He is expected to survive.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan accused Donald Trump on Monday of seeking to divide communities in Britain after the U.S. president criticized his leadership following a terror attack in the city. "A number of people have been detained and are at present being spoken to", the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.
Trump said he had spoken with British Prime Minister Theresa May to express America's "unwavering support" and offer USA assistance as the British government works to protect its citizens and bring the guilty to justice. She called it "an evil ideology" that perverts Islam and perverts the truth.
Armed police arrived and shot the attackers dead within eight minutes of the first emergency call.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny said the man, who was living in the Irish capital with his Scottish Muslim-convert wife, was not thought to have been under surveillance. The mayor had instead been telling London residents not to be concerned by a stepped-up police presence in the city following the attack.
Trump added that the media "is working hard to sell it!"
The attackers rammed pedestrians with a van before launching frenzied stabbings in the market. All three were shot and killed by police, who went on to arrest at least twelve other people.
