"We continue to work with the United Kingdom authorities who have asked that we await official confirmation of the identities of the victims, and for the families to be officially notified, before we release their names".

Four of the seven people confirmed dead in the attack have so far been identified, with French waiter Alexandre Pigeard, 27, the latest to be named.
