The first suspect detained was an 18-year old who was picked up near Dover Port.

Police have interviewed 45 witnesses and are inspecting 77 images and videos sent by members of the public.

Also Sunday, anti-terror police raided a second house in Stanwell near Heathrow airport. Since ISIS claimed the attack, DEBKAfile’s counterterrorism sources report that Scotland Yard and MI5 suspect a terrorist network is at work in the country, which struck earlier this month in Manchester and has since gone into action inthe Greater London area. They have deduced that its cells are interconnected Lego-style. The fact that only two suspects have been rounded up since the Friday attack indicates that the investigation is still groping in the dark.

    Hamas has disowned responsibility for governing the Gaza Strip as of Monday, Sept. 18. DEBKAfile: This announcement by Hamas, after talks with Egyptian officials, aims at pushing Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, head of the rival Fatah, into takingover and placingGaza under PA rule, 11 years after the Hamas coup against Fatah.

    As a further incentive, Hamas leaders promised to call off all contacts with Abbas’ arch foe, Muhammad Dahlan, and torefuse the donations he has solicited for the Gaza Strip. It is not clear if Hamas is willing to give up on the United Arab Emirates donations which are funneled through Dahlan.
    It was noted in Jerusalem that the Egyptian government has refrained from briefing Israel on the deals its officials have negotiated with the extremist Palestinian group, as through the future of the Gaza Strip is not its concern.
