Trump renews attack on London Mayor

He said, "The mayor is focused on dealing with Saturday's horrific and cowardly attack and working with the police, the emergency services and the Government to keep London safe".

One of the neighbours, Ikenna Chigbo, said he recognised Butt from a photo issued by British police following Saturday night's attack in the capital which killed seven and injured almost 50.

Redouane was 30 and "claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan".

Redouane's age was not immediately known because he gave two different dates of birth.

After the London Bridge attack, Trump criticized the mayor of London for his comment.

Prime Minister Theresa May, the Conservative Party leader, was asked earlier on Monday about Trump's criticism of Khan.

Mr Khan had said people should not be alarmed by an increased police presence on the streets.

The attackers rammed pedestrians with a van before launching frenzied stabbings in the market.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick told the BBC that police seized a "huge amount" of forensic material and evidence from the van and in the raids.
