Police shot the attackers dead just eight minutes after the first call from the public.

The attackers, identified as Khuram Butt, Rachid Redouane and Youssef Zaghba, were fatally shot by police. This was the safe house where the attack was planned, police said.

They have released images of the leather belts, which were strapped with disposable plastic water bottles wrapped in silver masking tape.

The British Red Cross's Saturday Night for London fundraising drive to support the victims of the attacks has raised over £700,000 since Sunday, and is backed by Borough Market where the knifemen attacked people enjoying a night out.

Writing in the Sunday Express where he is the business editor, Ho started his account of the horror evening just eight days ago: "I close my eyes and I can still see and hear, crystal clear, everything from that night". They used that van to run over people on London Bridge before leaving the crashed vehicle and stabbing people in Borough Market, police have said.

The London Bridge terrorists, who had a stash of Molotov cocktails in their van, wanted to use hostages as human shields in a bloody siege, police have revealed.

Commander Dean Haydon, head of Scotland Yard's Counter Terrorism Command, said: 'We've been working round the clock to understand what these men did in the lead up to the attack, but we need to know more about these unusual knives.

Forty-eight people have been taken to hospital after a terror attack in central London in which six people died, the London Ambulance Service said Sunday.

"London will not be cowed by extremists who have killed 35 people in three separate attacks in Britain, but police will ask for more resources to tackle the security threats", she added.

But in some cities, like New York City, the " March Against Sharia " crowd was met by a larger group of counterprotesters. All of which thrilled the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which helped organize numerous national counterprotests.

All three of the attackers were armed with pink ceramic knives, believed to have been bought from a Lidl store.

"According to the Forensics police officers, they found two blowtorches and "13 wine bottles with rags wrapped around them and believed to be filled with a flammable liquid" in their van after the attack had taken place".

The assailants lie dead after being shot by police.

The van also had office chairs and a suitcase.

Police are still appealing for witnesses as they piece together details of the attack.

Inspector Jim Cole, 41 based at nearby Peckham police station, said he and his team managed to move about 200 people to the safety of a pub.

According to the newspaper, the United Kingdom security services and counter-terror police are now examining the attacker's motives in trying to get a job.

Butt was also arrested for fraud last October but was about to be told by prosecutors he would face no further action. "I have to fix this", he said.
