United Kingdom police name third attacker as new search gets underway

Youssef Zaghba, the third man identified as one of the authors of Saturday's deadly attack in London, was intercepted a year ago en route to Syria and signalled to Britain as a possible militant, Italian authorities said Tuesday.

The Metropolitan Police Service's Counter Terrorism Command have released the names and photographs of the three men who carried out the terrorist attack on London Bridge and Borough Market this past weekend.

The third man suspected of carrying out Saturday's deadly attack in central London was an Italian-Morrocan who was arrested past year on suspicion of trying to reach Syria.

Police on Tuesday identified the third of London Bridge attackers who killed seven people as an Italian.

Zaghba was born in Fez, Morocco, in January 1995.

Scotland Yard has named the other two terrorists involved in the London Bridge attack as Khuram Shazad Butt and Rachid Redouane. Despite his appearance in the documentary Butt was a trainee within the London's metro system and was only asked to leave after his poor attendance record.

The Islamic gym where one of the London Bridge attackers trained said they saw nothing of concern during his time there.

His mother said her son used to show her videos of Syria and wanted to go "because it was a place where you could live according to a pure Islam". "That does require obviously vigilance but it does require proper resources and therefore cutting police numbers and not funding sufficiently those that are involved in security is a problem", he said. "[His] house was also raided and family members questioned", the source said.

"Our family is hurt by what he did", Dar said.

During his time in Britain, Butt once worked for Transport of London as a customer service clerk but failed his probation after a few months on the job after attendance issues.

The Italian authorities have told the media how Zaghba said he was "going to be a terrorist" but his mother insists that was a misunderstanding.

London police have said all 12 people held since the attack late on Saturday from the Barking neighbourhood, have been freed.

"We need to look at how the terror threat is evolving, the way that terrorism is breeding terrorism and the increased tempo of attacks".

"He or his attack has no connection with Pakistan", police clarified.

British officials said that Khuram Shahzad Butt, one of the 4 attackers who launched a van and knife attack in central London.

An investigation established that he was not risky enough to be arrested, they said.

Zaghba is not the only London attacker with multiple red flags in his background.

Butt was investigated by officers in 2015 but they found no evidence he was planning an attack and he was "prioritised in the lower echelons of our investigative work", police said.

It had been set at "critical" in the days after the Manchester concert bombing on May 22 that killed 22 people - reflecting a judgment that an attack might be imminent because accomplices with similar bombs might be on the loose.
