London police arrest another attack suspect

Britain London Bridge Attack

Worldwide desk - Police have released names and photographs of three suspected London Bridge attackers who were shot dead eight minutes after they used a van and knives to kill seven pedestrians.

London police said earlier they had recovered a body from the Thames in their search for Xavier Thomas, a 45-year-old missing since Saturday's attack.

"They were walking south over London Bridge at around the time the attack started", police said.

The trio used a van to deliberately target pedestrians on London Bridge, before beginning a stabbing frenzy in nearby Borough Market.

All three men were shot dead at the scene of the attack by officers within eight minutes of police receiving the first emergency call.

Met Police said Marine Police Unit specialist officers recovered the body Tuesday night near Limehouse, about 2 miles away from London Bridge.

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




At a press briefing with questions mounting about what the authorities knew, Rowley said: "Butt was known to the police and MI5".

Rachid Redouane, who police said claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan, also went by the name Rachid Elkhdar with a different date of birth.

Mr Thomas's next of kin have been told, police said, but formal identification has not yet taken place. All others who had been arrested have been released without facing charges.

On Monday, British police identified that man, Khuram Shazad Butt, a 27-year-old Pakistan-born Briton, as one of the assailants, saying he was known to authorities, though they had no evidence he was planning an attack.

The attack, the third in Britain in three months, has raised questions over the government's ability to protect Britain following cuts to police numbers in recent years. In a clip of the documentary, Butt can be seen praying to a black Islamist flag in London's Regent Park, The Independent reported.

Security has become the number one issue and both main parties issued statements on Tuesday portraying their own positions on policing and intelligence as the most robust.
