British police name third attacker as new search gets underway

11 Juin 2017

The three terrorists were shot dead by armed police eight minutes after they began the attack by driving a van across London Bridge.

The Metropolitan Police says the body was found on Tuesday downstream near Limehouse from the bridge. The next of kin of 45-year-old Xavier Thomas were informed.

Nathalie Cros Brohan, sister of Mr Thomas's girlfriend Christine Delcros, posted on Facebook this morning that the family "fear the worst".

His girlfriend, who was hit by the vehicle, is seriously injured in hospital.

People gather during an event for the victims of Saturday night's London Bridge terror attack.

They were walking over London Bridge when the three assailants in a van mowed down pedestrians on the bridge and then launched a stabbing spree in and around bars in nearby Borough Market.

Police on Tuesday identified the third attacker in the weekend terror assault in London amid mounting anger, two days before an election, over how the jihadist killers had apparently escaped surveillance.

The 30-year-old was held on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorist acts during a search of a property in Ilford and taken for questioning at a south London police station, Scotland Yard said.

Police killed all three attackers.

Police disclosed late on Monday that 27-year-old Khuram Butt, a British citizen born in Pakistan, was known to police and domestic spy agency MI5, but with resources scarce had not been deemed enough of a threat to warrant close monitoring.

Police have made more than a dozen arrests in the wake of the London Bridge attacks, but most have now been released without charge.

The report said Italy had put him on a watch list and flagged his presence to Moroccan and British authorities.

Collina said Zaghba was monitored by Italian intelligence agents each time he came to Italy to visit her after that initial run-in with authorities.

The leaders said they would not carry out the ritual that is normally performed for every Muslim, regardless of their actions. Both men lived in the Barking area of east London.

The attack, and prior attacks in Manchester and near Parliament in London, have prompted Prime Minister Theresa May to call for tougher counter-terrorism laws even if it means changing human rights protections.
