London attack: The men had planned to hire a lorry, say police

The Metropolitan police said they believed they now knew the identities of all those who were killed and there were "no outstanding or missing people".

Commander Dean Haydon said the attackers were each armed with a pink ceramic 12-inch knife and wore fake suicide belts composed of plastic water bottles wrapped in duct tape.

British police and security agencies are facing growing questions over how Zaghba and Butt slipped through the net.

At least two of the men were known to British intelligence and law-enforcement officials, raising questions about whether anything could have been done to prevent the assault.

A second source said Italian authorities had flagged him up to British authorities after he moved to England past year. He was also stopped at London's Stansted airport in January, but let go.

Golden State Warriors Kevin Durant not simply along for Finals ride
DUB Nation is an astonishing 15-0 this postseason, a mere win from an historic 16-0 National Basketball Association record. That achievement sort of became moot when they flopped and became the first team to cough up a 3-1 Finals lead.

An armed officer can be seen aiming a gun at the other terrorists as they lie on the ground. Authorities said he aroused suspicion because he tried to board a flight to Turkey with a one-way ticket and a small backpack. But he successfully got them back after a court determined there wasn't enough evidence to arrest him.

He said Zaghba was always tracked by Italian intelligence officers while in the country and that United Kingdom authorities were informed.

Valeria Collina was quoted by Italian weekly news magazine L'Espresso as saying she last spoke to her son Thursday and now realizes it was a goodbye call. "It's something that has no sense, for any religion, or any ideology", she said, choking back tears and calling her son's actions a "deviation of terror". The parents lived for a time in Morocco before separating when the mother returned to Italy and re-established herself in Bologna.

She said she didn't approve of his London friends and never felt comfortable in the London neighborhood where he lived. He was known to security services and even featured in a television documentary entitled "The Jihadis Next Door". They said they were unaware of the other two men. His cousin, 18-year-old Bilal Dar, told The Associated Press that Butt's uncle was taken in for questioning.

"He is thought to have been skateboarding in a park when he stopped to defend a woman who had been injured in the attack near Borough Market".

The Penguins pounded the Predators on Thursday night in the kind of game where the winning team looks virtually unbeatable. Subban (76) during the first period in Game 5 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Final, Thursday, June 8, 2017, in Pittsburgh .

Zaghba was reportedly working in a London restaurant and had not been seen in Italy since 2016.

The narrowing in the polls started before the Manchester and London attacks and appeared to be largely linked to an unpopular policy announcement regarding care for the elderly. Turnbull said there are "very real concerns" about their wellbeing.

May pledged that MI5 would carry out a review after being repeatedly challenged about how the Home Office, police and intelligence services dealt with the information relating to the attackers.

London mayor Sadiq Khan, a Labour party member, said a future Conservative-led government would introduce further cuts.

"It is seeking to project its influence and maintain its relevance by inspiring, encouraging, and - though there does not appear to be evidence of this in the latest United Kingdom plots to date - directing attacks in Europe and elsewhere", he said.

"I understand and agree with their choice because it is necessary to send a strong political message", Collina said.
