Third London Bridge attacker identified as Youssef Zaghba, UK cops say

Third London Bridge attacker identified as Youssef Zaghba, UK cops say

Scotland Yard said Butt was known to police two years ago but with no intelligence suggesting an attack.

Among those radicalised by Muhajiroun were the suicide bombers who killed 52 people on London´s public transport system in July 2005, and the men who murdered soldier Lee Rigby in the capital in 2013.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn yesterday said he supported those calling for May to resign because of her role reducing police staffing during her tenure as home secretary, though he said the best remedy was to vote her out.

Seven people were killed in London late Saturday night after a van rammed into people on the London Bridge and continued on to nearby Borough Market, where police said three assailants got out of the van and stabbed multiple people.

Police said 22-year-old Youssef Zaghba lived in east London and that his family has been notified, adding that he had not been considered to be a "subject of interest" to either police or the intelligence services.

He is alleged to have been an associate of the hate preacher Anjem Choudary and appeared in a 2016 Channel 4 documentary about British Islamic extremists, The Jihadis Next Door. Rachid Redouane claimed both Libyan and Moroccan nationality.

A photograph of a man carefully balancing his mug of beer as he walked amid those fleeing the attack on Saturday night went viral online, inspiring thousands of memes and becoming for many a symbol of calm resistance in the face of terror.

Police have so far released no details about them, saying only that they know the identities and will release names "as soon as operationally possible".

"I think in the short term, we have to understand that the intelligence services - domestic and worldwide - do have to conduct a lot of surveillance".

"You have to be kidding me?!: Terror attacks are part of living in big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan", he tweeted.

"I want to send a clear message to the sick and evil extremists who commit these ugly crimes", Khan said. "You will not win", Khan said to applause. Another 48 were injured, 21 of whom are in a critical condition.

Seven people were killed and dozens wounded in Saturday's attack.

On Monday, senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway condemned what she called the media's "obsession with covering everything he says on Twitter and very little of what he does as president".

May has said the three attacks - including one on Parliament in March - weren't connected in any operational sense but were linked by what she called the "perverted ideology" of extremist Islam.

The country's major political parties temporarily suspended campaigning with only days to go before the general election.

Corbyn noted that for six years, police numbers fell while May was in charge of security as interior minister, implementing a budget-cutting drive.

More than 130 imams and Muslim religious leaders from Britain and other Western countries have said they will refuse to perform Islamic funeral prayers for the terrorists of the Manchester and London attacks and called on other imams to do the same.

May insisted London police were happy with their resources, while counter-terrorism budgets had been protected and the number of armed officers had increased.
