Third London attacker said to have been flagged to UK police

British police searching for a French man missing since the London Bridge attack say they have recovered a body from the River Thames.

Late on Sunday, three attackers drove south across London Bridge, mowing down pedestrians before stabbing bystanders in the nearby Borough Market area.

London, Jun 8 British police investigating the deadly London Bridge attack arrested three men in new raids in east London, as a video released today showed the frenzied tense moments just before the attackers, including a man of pakistani origin, were gunned down by armed police officers.

He did not identify the victim, but British police said the next of kin of 45-year-old Xavier Thomas were informed.

Wonder Woman's No Man's Land Scene Was Almost Cut
Perhaps that's exactly why this superhero movie didn't include one - it might just be that Wonder Woman is its own movie. But I don't think that we want to feel that we're forced to do something just because we didn't in the past.


Forensics officers were seen carrying boxes into the property in Wingate Road, which is a street away from the Ummah Fitness Centre, where the Times said the three London Bridge terrorists were filmed outside five days before the attack. He, along with Khuram Butt and Rachid Redouane killed seven and injured 48 others on Saturday night.

The Islamic State terror group has claimed responsibility for the massacre, which sparked fears that Britain is in the grip of a wave of copycat incidents. While working his "seasonal job" in London, he continued to speak to his mother back home.

Police forces across the country said safety was being reviewed, with an increased presence expected as people cast their votes.

The Revolutionary Guard Corps vowed to take revenge for the attacks, and said that there is a definitive link to the visit of U.S. Syria's Foreign Ministry also condemned the attacks, which it said were backed by various governments that it did not specify.


The Spanish government and the siblings of Ignacio Echeverria, a 39-year-old banker, also received confirmation Wednesday that he was one of the eight people killed.

One man in Barking had reported concerns about Butt to the anti-terrorism hotline in 2015 and another woman had said he was trying to radicalize her children and she was scared of him.

Scotland Yard confirmed the identity of the 22-year-old, from east London, and said he was not a police or MI5 "subject of interest", despite Italian media reports suggesting he was.

They then jumped out of the vehicle and attacked members of the public in and around bars in Borough Market before all three were shot dead by armed police.
