From El Pais -

The British police had records on the perpetrators of the assault in London
The perpetrators of the attacks in  London had police records

Un bebé se salva con una prótesis creada con una impresora 3D
A baby was saved with a prosthesis created with a 3D printer

David Cameron: "It is a betrayal of the United Kingdom and of Islam"
