Rachid Redouane, 30, and Khuram Shazad Butt, 27.

All 12 people arrested on Sunday after the London attack have now been released without charge. Police were searching an address in Ilford, also in the east of the city, on Tuesday morning.

Police said there would be "increased physical measures on London's bridges to keep the public safe".

They were shot dead at the scene by officers within eight minutes of police receiving the first emergency call. Identification is pending for most of the dead.

Saturday's attack, claimed by the Islamic State group, followed a similar car-and-knife assault by a lone attacker on Westminster Bridge on March 22 that killed five people and injured more than 50.

Security has become the number one issue and both main parties issued statements on Tuesday portraying their own positions on policing and intelligence as the most robust.

He appeared in a Channel 4 documentary entitled "The Jihadis Next Door" about British extremists that was broadcast past year, British media reported.

The surveillance camera footage shows the first police auto rolling forward as the attackers lunge at a man to stab him late Saturday night. Rachid Redouane, 30 had claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan.

Mr Verhofstadt was referring to Ms May's decision to hold another election in a failed attempt to solidify her mandate. The party's opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage places it at odds with modernizing Conservatives.

"What we need to do is make sure that we ask these questions and the police and the security services respond and answer the legitimate questions we all have", Khan added.

Butt featured in a Channel 4 documentary previous year about Islamist extremists with links to the jailed preacher Anjem Choudary.

"Khuram Butt worked for London Underground for just under six months as a trainee customer services assistant, leaving in October previous year", the TFL said in a statement.

More than 130 imams and Muslim religious leaders have said they will refuse to say funeral prayers for the perpetrators of Saturday's attack in London. "Tell them Chrissy sent you", her family said in a statement.

Butt, who police consider the attack ringleader, had been on bail after being arrested for fraud in a case in October of a year ago, police said.

Haydon said since last Saturday they had taken 262 statements from people from 19 different countries and numerous global inquiries were ongoing relating to the attackers and the victims.

His house had been raided this year by police as part of a disruption tactic used during active counter-terrorism investigations.

"It looks as if it is pretty much a contained plot involving the three of them, which is supported by the forensic evidence we've got back so far", Haydon said.

Qatar's neighbours have also criticised it for allegedly supporting groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. Qatar's neighbors have also given its citizens 14 days to leave and instructed their own nationals to return.

One of the victims in Saturday's attack was identified as Chrissy Archibald, a Canadian who had moved to Europe to be with her fiance.

"Our family is hurt by what he did", Dar said in the town about two hours east of Pakistan's capital.

France's foreign minister has announced that a French citizen was among those killed in the London attacks and that another remains missing.

The Met have set up a casualty bureau on 0800 096 1233 and 020 7158 0197 for people concerned about friends or relatives.

"Our work necessarily involves making hard judgments about how to prioritize the resources available to us at a time when the facing a severe and high tempo terrorist threat", police said. "Kirsty - we love you and we will miss you dearly".

A book of condolence, already signed by Prime Minister Theresa May, will also open on Tuesday at Southwark Council's headquarters in Tooley Street.

British Prime Minister Theresa May faced a barrage of questions Monday on deep cuts made to police numbers in the United Kingdom while she was Home Secretary. Former Manchester community police officer Damian O'Reilly told then Home Secretary May at the 2015 Police Federation conference that "changes that have been imposed have caused community policing to collapse".

And now he has been identified as one of the three men who carried out Saturday's van and knife attack.
