Police in Britain have identified the three men who went on the rampage at London Bridge on Saturday night, killing 7 people and injuring about 50. The attackers were shot dead by police, after mowing down their victims with a van and stabbing them at random inside pubs and restaurants. Britain's most senior anti-terrorism officer, Mark Rowley, said 8 special officers had fired an unprecedented 50 bullets at the men who were wearing fake suicide belts.

The police have made 12 arrests in East London, where they are continuing to search properties. They've also carried out controlled explosions. It's emerged that foreign nationals were among those killed. One was French, another Canadian. 36 of those injured are still in hospital, with 21 in a critical condition.

The American star, Ariana Grande, whose show in Manchester was hit by a suicide bomber two weeks ago, has been back on stage again in the English city to play a huge benefit concert for victims of the attack along with some of the biggest names in music. Artists have been telling the crowd of some 50000 people that hatred and fear will not be allowed to win.

In other news, tens of thousands of people have attended a candle-lit vigil in Hong Kong to mark the 28th anniversary of the Square Masscare in Beijing. Hong Kong is the only place in China where people are allowed to mark the incident.

The Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has told a summit of West African heads of state that strengthening relations with African countries was a priority for Israel. However, the King of Morocco canceled his plans to attend, because Mr. Netanyahu would be there.

And the Prime Minister of Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina, says her government intends to plant mangroves to expand what's already the world's largest mangrove forest, the Sundarbans. She said it would help preserve the biodiversity of the Sundarbans, a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site.
