Third London attacker said to have been flagged to UK police

(London Bridge Attack) UK Cops Name 22 Year Old Moroccan Italian Youssef Zaghbaas As Third Attacker

British police say Zaghba was an Italian citizen of Moroccan dissent, was living in East London at the time of the attack.

Collina added that she had spoken to Italy's anti-terrorism police previous year after her son was prevented from traveling to the Middle East, and that they were the ones to told her on Tuesday that her son had been one of the men who carried out the attack.

A man has been arrested on suspicion of terror offences by detectives investigating the London Bridge attack following an early morning raid at an address in east London.

The UK Metropolitan police confirmed the media reports. During the attack, seven people were killed and dozens more were wounded.

Daesh claimed Saturday's attack in which Zaghba, Butt and Redouane drove a hired van into pedestrians on London Bridge at around 10 pm before stabbing people in the area around the nearby Borough Market. The search in Ilford, just north of Barking, is seeking to determine whether the group had accomplices.

Jibril Palomba, who lives close to Butt's east London home, said he was anxious Butt had been radicalizing kids, telling them things like, "If you are not Muslim, you do not follow in the religion of Muslim ... you're basically going to hell".

The rampage was brought to an end when the trio were shot dead by armed police eight minutes after the first emergency call.

All three London Bridge terrorists have been identified as security services prepare to launch a review into the atrocity amid mounting questions for police and MI5.

Butt, who reportedly went by the name Abu Zaitun, was known to neighbours by the nickname "Abs/z" and was a llegedly an associate of radical hate preacher Anjem Choudary. A string of opinion polls over the past couple of weeks have pointed to a narrowing in the gap between her Conservative Party and the main opposition Labour Party.

Two more victims of the terror attack have been named today as French waiter Alexandre Pigeard, and Australian nurse Kirsty Boden, who died trying to help others injured in the attack.

Tillerson: Trump put 'pressure' on Netanyahu and Abbas to revive negotiations
Both sides are wary of being accused of resisting Trump's peace efforts or being cast as obstructing the resumption of talks. He is slated to meet separately with Netanyahu in Jerusalem and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem.

The mother, 68, was convinced her son was working in London, and did not know about any other initiatives on his part, sources said.

A third attacker is yet to be named.

Saturday's attack was the third in as many months involving suspects who had been on the radar of British authorities. Police have not released the identity of the third.

Police have said Redouane was not known to security services.

As interior minister from 2010 to 2016, May oversaw a drop of 20,000 in the number of police officers in England and Wales, which Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said should never have happened and warranted her resignation.

Much of the area around London Bridge remained cordoned off as commuters struggled to work in the driving rain.

A book of condolence, already signed by Prime Minister Theresa May, will also open on Tuesday at Southwark Council's headquarters in Tooley Street.

Between this and the fact that one of the other jihadis appeared on a TV show about jihadism, imagine the sort of threats United Kingdom intelligence must be dealing with to render these two obviously unsafe cretins a low enough priority by comparison to let them fall through the cracks.

"Our work necessarily involves making hard judgements about how to prioritise the resources available to us at a time when the United Kingdom is facing a severe and high tempo terrorist threat", police said.
