Alleged London Attacker Was a Known Radical Islamist

Hedge was one of at least 48 people who were wounded in the attack carried out by three men in the London Bridge area that also left seven people dead and anxious friends and relatives frantic to find out about others still missing.

The Metropolitan Police also said in a statement that specialist officers were working with families and the coroner to identify those who died in the attack.

London Bridge was targeted last Saturday, June 3, by attackers who ran a white van over pedestrians and stabbed people in bars in Borough Market, CNN reported.

On Sunday Prime Minister Theresa May visited some of the 48 people taken to hospitals across the capital after the attack.

SITE Intelligence Group reported that ISIS is claiming responsibility for the attack in London Bridge.

"There's an election on Thursday; that's the chance", he said, citing an "appalling" cut in police staffing levels.

May said there was no clear evidence that the three attacks were operationally connected. Butt did not fall into this category when they last investigated him.

He said many people were "very anxious that she was at the Home Office for all this time, presided over these cuts in police numbers, and now is saying that we have a problem".

"We have given increased powers to the police to be able to deal with terrorists - powers which Jeremy Corbyn has boasted he has always opposed", she said. And amid all of this, U.S. President Donald Trump has launched a Twitter war against London Mayor Sadiq Khan, labelling him weak on terrorism.

The knife-wielding attackers appeared to be leaving the restaurant where Candice Hedge was hiding under a table when one of them spotted her, returning to slash her throat, the 34-year-old waitress' father told an Australian newspaper.

Campaigning resumed Monday after being suspended for a day.

Islamic State, which is losing territory in Syria and Iraq to an offensive backed by a US-led coalition, said its militants were responsible for the attack. "As a proud and patriotic British Muslim, I say this: You do not commit these disgusting acts in my name", he told the crowd.
