Police reveals the identity of all three London terrorists

Police reveals the identity of all three London terrorists

They included seven women and five men who were arrested following the attack, while a 55-year-old man and 53-year-old woman arrested at the same address in Barking have been released.

All 10 people still being held as part of the investigation were released without charge on Monday.

The Met Police late Tuesday morning named Youssef Zaghba as the third attacker.

The police had on Monday night named Butt and Rachi Redouane as two of the three attackers who were responsible for killing seven people and injuring almost 50 others at London Bridge and Borough Market on Saturday night.

Butt had appeared in a documentary, "The Jihadis Next Door," and was known to investigators, but police said he was not believed to be plotting an attack.

Both Butt and Redouane lived in Barking, east London, but it is not yet known how the two men knew each other - with work to understand more about the trio and their connections under way.

Twenty-two people, including children, were killed when Salman Abedi set off a bomb as revellers left an Ariana Grande concert.

The first victim named was Canadian Christine Archibald, 30, who died in her fiance's arms after being hit by the speeding van on London Bridge.

Daesh had claimed responsibility for London attack, as it did for the Manchester bombing almost two weeks ago, in which 22 were killed.

The attack, the third in Britain in three months involving suspects who had been on the radar of British authorities, has raised questions over the government's ability to protect Britain following cuts to police numbers in recent years.




The officers - believed to be from Pakistan's Inter Service Intelligence agency (ISI)- were seen outside the premises thought to belong to Nasir Butt, a well-known businessman in the area, it said.

Her opponent, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has surprised many by rising in the polls, said May should resign over her cuts to police funding and accused her of trying to keep the United Kingdom safe "on the cheap". "You will not win", Khan said to applause.

London police chief Cressida Dick said that, while some of the recent attacks in Britain had global dimensions, they had a largely domestic "center of gravity".

Another neighbor, Michael Mimbo, told Reuters that Butt supported the north London football team Arsenal.

The so-called Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

"I will try, from this moment on, to do all I can to make sure these things are not repeated".

He said: "Two years ago I spoke at an anti-radicalisation, anti-extremist conference in the European Union headquarters in Brussels".

Prime Minister Theresa May, who has already signed it, said in her message that British values are "superior to anything offered by the preachers and supporters of hate".
