Third London attacker named by police

Third London attacker named by police

The second attacker was named as 30-year-old Rachid Redouane, who police said claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan, and also went by the name Rachid Elkhdar with a different date of birth.

Police say he was not a "subject of interest" to police or the intelligence services.

Khuram Shazad Butt, aged 27, was a British citizen born in Pakistan, who was already known to police and MI5.

Earlier, Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera had reported that Zaghba had been stopped at an Italian airport because authorities believed he was on his way to Syria, and that Italian officials had warned British counterparts about him.

Police said they now had 10 people in custody after releasing two of the 12 people arrested on Sunday.

The disclosure means perpetrators in all three of the terrorist outrages to hit Britain this year had at some point appeared on the radar of security agencies.

British authorities on Wednesday arrested three more people in connection with last week's London Bridge attack, London's Metropolitan Police said.

Authorities also carried out two additional search warrants in east London, police said.

Seven victims were killed and dozens injured in the spree, which ended when armed police shot dead the knife-wielding extremists just eight minutes after the first emergency call.

Rowley said the security services had stopped 18 plots since 2013, including five since the Westminster attack two months ago.

"A small number of the highest priority investigations involve current attack planning, and these investigations command a significant proportion of our resource", police said.
