UK police name third attacker as new search gets underway

Who was London attacker Khuram Butt?

It was reported that he was stopped by Italian police in March a year ago at Bologna's airport trying to get to Syria via Turkey, and that this was communicated by Italian intelligence to their United Kingdom counterparts. It was thought he was bound for Syria.

The surveillance camera footage shows the first police vehicle rolling forward as the attackers lunge at a man to stab him late Saturday night.

Police on Monday named the other two attackers as Shazad Butt and Rachid Redouane. Youssef Zaghba, it appears had been known by authorities.

Redouane, 30, also used the name Rachid Elkhdar, claiming to be six years younger.

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

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said that the country's intelligence agencies had questions to answer.

"I am going to be a terrorist", he told officials after he was stopped.

May called the election in an effort for her party to receive a larger majority as she begins negotiations for Britain to leave the European Union.

The inquiry was "prioritised in the lower echelons of our investigative work", Rowley was quoted as saying by the BBC.

The commission said in a statement: "It is ultimately for the (Acting) Returning Officers to make decisions on what arrangements are appropriate". "We will probably discover communications during that period that we couldn't access that would have change the situation", the spokesperson said.

Counterterror analysts say they are surprised that Butt remained a "low priority" for the security services despite his close connections to Sajeel Shahid, a 41-year-old who ran an all-Muslin gym in east London and was named in a NY court case as having helped to set up weapons training in Pakistan for the July 7 suicide bombers.

Police said they are still trying to identify the third attacker.

An intelligence official with direct knowledge of the situation said the man is an influential businessman in the Jhelum district of Punjab province.

The operation took place overnight and searches are ongoing at the properties, the force said. "[His] house was also raided and family members questioned", the source said. The 12 people arrested shortly after the attack had already been released without charge.

But London Mayor Sadiq Khan, describing himself as "a proud and patriotic British Muslim", slapped down those who invoked Islam to justify acts of murder. Butt had appeared in a documentary, The Jihadis Next Door, and was known to investigators, but police said he was not believed to be plotting an attack.

He appeared in a Channel 4 documentary called "The Jihadis Next Door" previous year and was once asked to leave a mosque in east London for being disruptive.

Transport for London has confirmed that Butt worked as trainee customer services assistant for six months a year ago. Butt was linked to al-Muhajiroun, the banned extremist group whose leader, Choudary, was jailed a year ago for encouraging support for Islamic State.

Armed police responded and within eight minutes had shot dead all three attackers.
