"These men have stayed just within the law for many years, but there is no one within the counterterrorism world that has any doubts of the influence that they have had, the hate they have spread and the people that they have encouraged to join terrorist organizations", Commander Dean Haydon, head of the Metropolitan police's counterterrorism command said after the Choudary and Rahman verdicts. The three attackers appear to launch themselves towards the officers before falling.
The discoveries, especially of the plan to hire a truck, suggested more could have been killed.
One of the three terrorists, slain by British police during a deadly attack in London last Saturday and having double Italian and Moroccan citizenship, had been flagged as a potential threat by Italian security services, Italian media reported Tuesday.
The question remains how the men met and knew one another but police said Saturday they did not suspect a wider plot. To increase the force of the impact they loaded it with bags of gravel and knew where to lay hands on so many bags of gravel.
Ms Collina said she would dedicate her life to fighting jiahadi ideology by "teaching real Islam to people and trying to convince families to fill the void that they might find in their children".
Police arrested several people and are widening their investigation after a series of attacks descr.
Pakistani-born Butt, 27, a keen fan of Arsenal soccer club, was known to the intelligence services but not thought to be actively plotting an attack.
It was not clear why he could not pay, or if he lacked the necessary licence to drive such a vehicle.
Transport for London (TfL) said the fines "should never have been issued". "The kitchen knives, each measuring 12 inches, are branded Ernesto and are ceramic, rather than metal". Tape was wrapped around the handles.
Police shot and killed the three attackers within eight minutes of receiving an emergency call, police said.
At least one of the three men was apparently interviewed by police over his beliefs, the Daily Mail reports, according to messages seen on a notepad held by an officer at Sunday's raids in Barking, east London.
Another suspect has been arrested in connection with the London Bridge attack.
An unnamed French national also died in the rampage, with two others missing, the French foreign affairs minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said.
"They were still fairly close to the van".
Shahid, 41, was a member of banned Islamic extremist group al-Muhajiroun and is said to have helped jihadis reach terror training camps in Pakistan. This was the safe house where the attack was planned, police said.
Investigators have spoken with 262 people.
United Kingdom police sources, however, say that he was not on the radar of the British intelligence agencies. When Bakri Mohammed was banned from the United Kingdom after the 2005 London bombings, Anjem Choudary, a British-Pakistani extremist with legal training, emerged as the group's leader in the UK. He was jailed a year ago for encouraging support of IS, which has been linked to numerous militant plots in Britain and overseas.
Butt had been on bail after being arrested for fraud in a case in October, police said.
"My view at the moment is that he then went to plan B and ended up hiring the van instead", Haydon said.
"I'm calling on all Londoners to pull together, and send a clear message around the world that our city will never be divided by these ugly individuals who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life", Khan said.
Police were also reviewing security at "iconic sites", crowded places and major events, and refreshing advice to theatres, bars, shopping centres and sports venues.
