Police identifies third attacker of London attack

October 2012 Anjem Choudary protests in support of Abu Hamza's appeal against US extradition

Authorities suspect Butt was radicalized in the United Kingdom and not in Pakistan, the newspapers said.

Meanwhile, the Spanish government has confirmed that Ignacio Echeverría, 39, was killed in Saturday's attack.

Police on Monday named the other two attackers as Shazad Butt and Rachid Redouane.

Footage has emerged showing armed police shooting and killing the three London attackers as they run, knives raised, towards bystanders and officials. The Islamic State claimed responsibility.

The 27-year-old was one of three men who struck pedestrians on London Bridge with a rented van before stabbing diners and drinkers at bars and restaurants in Borough Market while wearing fake suicide vests. Many victims were sent to the hospital, and eight people died.

What did police know about Khuram Butt?

The family of an off-duty police officer, Charlie Guenigault, who has been hailed as a hero for running toward the attackers, praised his bravery and said he would likely do the same again if faced with the same situation.

Italian authorities said Zaghba was stopped at the Bologna airport in March 2016 and questioned, but never charged with a crime.

Several people had alerted police to Butt's extremist views and he also appeared a year ago in a documentary, "The Jihadis Next Door", in which he is shown unfurling a black-and-white flag associated with the Islamic State group.

Earlier on Tuesday, a poll conducted by Survation for ITV before the London attack, had the Conservatives' lead over Labour narrowing to just one point from six points in the same poll a week earlier.

Scotland Yard today made a new arrest as part of its investigation into the London Bridge attack carried out by three men including a Pakistani-origin terrorist last week. Forty-eight people were injured.

The trio were shot dead by the police. The U.S. Embassy in London said it was aware of reports that U.S. citizens were injured, and was not aware that any had been killed.

"We spoke about a particular attack that happened and like most radicals he had a justification for anything and everything and that day I realized I needed to contact the authorities", the friend said to the BBC. "MSM is working hard to sell it!"

Butt featured in a Channel 4 documentary past year about Islamist extremists with links to the jailed preacher Anjem Choudary.

White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump was not "picking a fight" with Khan and that it was "utterly ridiculous" that his criticism was because Khan is Muslim.

"From what I'm seeing, there is nothing that suggests at the moment that we got that wrong", Haydon said, referring to Butt.

Mr Pigeard, born in Paris, was one of three French victims among the eight people killed in London Bridge.

Eighteen people have been arrested in connection with last week's attack.
