Police identify 3rd London attacker as terror investigation continues

A second French citizen has been confirmed killed in the London Bridge attack, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Wednesday (Jun 7).

NHS England, the British health authority, said Wednesday that of the dozens of victims hospitalized after the attack, 10 people remain in critical condition.

And now he has been identified as one of the three men who carried out Saturday's van and knife attack.

The Metropolitan Police say the body was found Tuesday downstream from the bridge. The mother was said to reside in Bologna.

Last year, Zaghba was stopped at the airport in Bologna on his way to Istanbul and was put on an EU-wide database but was not prosecuted.

According to the reports, the British and Moroccan secret services were notified of Zaghba's status as a potential militant.

Searches of the residential address in Ilford, as well as a business address in Ilford are ongoing. Zaghba's Italian citizenship prevented such an expulsion, Italian daily Repubblica said.

In Italy, a senior police official told The Washington Post that Zaghba had been suspected of associating with a terrorist group. "At any one time MI5 and police are conducting around 500 active investigations, involving 3,000 subjects of interest".

But is obvious that you need to combine a lot of things, and a lot of things have to put together to have that record. Wawrinka surrendering the first set ultimately didn't affect him but the same couldn't be said about Thiem.

The paper adds that Italian authorities alerted British and Moroccan authorities about his trips to the Middle East.

United Kingdom authorities are yet to comment on that claim.

The investigation into the assault on London's nightlife by Khuram Butt, Rachid Redouane and Youseff Zaghba continues with armed police making a further three arrests on Thursday night in east London.

Butt, 27, a British citizen who was born in Pakistan, featured in a controversial Channel 4 documentary previous year called The Jihadi Next Door, and was known to the intelligence service who investigated him in 2015. One of those they were most concerned about was Butt.

Meanwhile, London police have taken down much of the security cordon they initially placed around the crime scene, leaving only Borough Market and some areas nearby still closed. The documentary has also been removed from Channel 4's webpage. Whatever happened, there are now serious questions for the authorities to answer about what went so badly wrong.

The terror trio began their attack by mounting the pavement on London Bridge and ploughing into pedestrians.

Xavier Thomas, 45, is thought to have been struck by the terrorists' van on the bridge and witnesses reported him being thrown into the water.

Forty eight people were injured.
