Australia confirms 2 citizens dead in London Bridge attack

Another Australian woman, Sara Zelenak, has been reported missing since the attack.

"My lovely daughter Sara Zelenak has been confirmed dead", she wrote on Facebook, alongside photos of Sara smiling at the airport before her flight in March.

"Sara Zelenak is confirmed dead they found her body and has DNA tests confirmed thank you for all the overwhelming love and support from everyone".

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said he had spoken to Ms Zelenak's family.

A tribute note signed from the "Boro Bistro family", left at the scene of the attack, said in French "Alex, I hope that the place where you are now will be even more lovely and peaceful than the desert of Jordan". Boden wrote. "At risk of sounding cliche, life is short and we should all use the time we have wisely".

Meanwhile, the royal family has shared their condolences saying their hearts go out to the victims, their families and friends.

A man cries as he kneels in front of a flower memorial for victims near the London Bridge area of London, Tuesday, June 6, 2017.

The Australian Government remains in close contact with the victims' families, who have requested privacy. This is not a course we will follow despite our loss.

"This is the last thing that anybody expects to happen to their children when they're in London".

Fears had been growing for 21-year-old Sara who had not been seen since being separated from a friend as she tried to flee the terror attack.

"As a family we are shocked and appalled by the actions of Khuram and his associates", his family said in a statement.

"We are heartbroken by these awful crimes and this bad loss".

They were walking south over London Bridge at around the time the attack started.

Tara reportedly broke down as she described her "absolutely beautiful" niece as "the girl next door" and a "very special, kindred spirit".


On Tuesday, police also named 22-year-old Youssef Zaghba - a Moroccan-Italian - as the third man involved.

Family, friends and her former Moreton Bay College school community were notified on Wednesday afternoon Ms Zelenak, who had been working in London as an au pair, was among the dead.

According to his sister, Ms Archibald died in the arms of her fiancé, Tyler Ferguson.

A minute's silence is due to be observed in Britain at 11 a.m. local time (1000 GMT) in memory of the seven people who died during the attack late Saturday.

"Where (the) policemen were stabbed three months ago, she was there the day before in the exact same spot", Ms Wallace told 97.3FM radio in Brisbane.

"I mean longer prison sentences for those convicted of terrorist offences, I mean making it easier for the authorities to deport foreign terrorist suspects back to their own country, " she said.

"She would have had no understanding of the callous cruelty that caused her death", they said.

'You bought so much joy into our lives, to me an Bea for so long and also to Mum and Dad, who took you under their wing like no other.

"I'm so excited to go to Paris!' because she hasn't been".

She had been leaving London Grind, a popular restaurant, moments from the scene of the attack, with her friend Pri Gonçalves, when the attack began. "She's been gone for 48 hours and no one has seen or heard from her", Wallace told News Corp on Monday.

The BBC said the chef's aunt had confirmed his body was identified by his mother and brother on Wednesday.

The school will hold a memorial in their former student's memory, and said they will set up a tribute to her in the quadrangle.

Two more Australians are recovering from injuries sustained in the horror incident.
