Third London attacker identified

Youssef Zaghba Khuram Shazad Butt and Rachid Redouane

"We did everything we could have done, but there weren't elements of proof that he was a terrorist", he added.

Mr Thomas had been missing since he was caught up in the attack with Ms Delcros. Seven were killed and almost 50 wounded.

Saturday's rampage followed a suicide bombing that killed 22 adults and children at a pop concert in Manchester two weeks ago, and an attack in March when five people died after a auto was driven into pedestrians on London's Westminster Bridge.

Ms Delcros was seriously injured by the van, although her condition in hospital has stabilised, her family said.

Relatives of Australian Sara Zelenak have confirmed she was another of the victims of the weekend attack.

Meanwhile, and in what it said was an unprecedented move, the Muslim Council of Britain said more than 130 imams and other religious leaders had refused to perform the traditional Islamic funeral prayer for the attackers. Echeverria's brother Joaquin told the AP that a diplomatic process had begun for relatives to see the victim's body and to eventually take it back to his native Spain. They stressed that while they believe they know the attackers' identities, "formal identification is yet to take place". They have not been identified or charged. Twelve people arrested earlier have since been released without charge.

The third terrorist involved in the London Bridge attack has been identified as 22-year-old Youssef Zaghba, an Italian national of Moroccan descent who was living in London.

The Home Office has not commented as there is an ongoing police investigation, while Scotland Yard has said Zaghba, who lived in east London, was not a police or MI5 subject of interest. But he changed, she said, when he went to Britain about a year ago and was seduced by radical views propagated on the internet. "From his face, from his look, I could see there was a radicalization, as you say".

The terror attack which hit London on Saturday claimed seven lives.

Shahid allegedly provided al-Qaida terror training to Mohammed Siddique Khan, one of the four suicide bombers who killed 52 people during London's morning rush hour in 2005.

Despite a rapid response to Saturday's deadly attack, which saw armed officers shoot dead all three suspects within eight minutes, opposition parties have called for May's resignation for her cuts to police numbers.


Butt and Redouane, who claimed to be Moroccan-Libyan and also used the name Rachid Elkhdar, lived in Barking, while Zaghba is reported to have worked at a restaurant in London.

Youssef Zaghba had been flagged to British intelligence services after telling Italian police "I'm going to be a terrorist" when he was reportedly stopped trying to travel to Syria.

Both Butt and Zaghba were known to British law enforcement, raising questions about whether anything could have been done to prevent the assault.

Italian officials said suspicions about him had been shared with British authorities. He was also stopped at London's Stansted airport in January, but let go.

Collina said she understood many British imams want to send a strong signal and have said they are not prepared to give her son a Muslim funeral.

Then, his passport and cellphone were sequestered after he tried to board a flight for Turkey with a one-way ticket and a small backpack.

There was not enough evidence to arrest or charge Zaghba when authorities questioned him at the Marconi airport on March 15, 2016, Bologna prosecutor Giuseppe Amato said Tuesday.

Collina said she told her son, "At this point you should be ideal". But she put much of the blame for her son's radicalization on Islamic propaganda found on the internet. "It's something that has no sense, for any religion, or any ideology", she said, choking back tears and calling her son's actions a "deviation of terror".

According to AGI, the British and Moroccan authorities were notified of Zaghba's status as a potential militant by DIGOS.

Britain has been experiencing a number of violent attacks in the past few days.

The latest opinion poll on voting intentions, by Survation for ITV, had the Conservatives' lead over Labour narrowing to just one point from six points in the same poll a week earlier.
