Trio detained by anti-terror police in east London following armed raids

Lamar Ellis | 13 June, 2017, 07:36

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.

"Detectives investigating the terrorist attack in London Bridge on Saturday, 3 June, can confirm the number of people that were killed as a result of the attack is now eight", a spokesman said.

Two of the men were arrested during an operation on a street in Ilford, east London.

Butt, a father-of-two who appeared on Channel 4 documentary The Jihadis Next Door, was also reported to the anti-terror hotline in 2015 for showing signs of "extremism or radicalisation".

In the assault, three masked men drove a van into pedestrians on the bridge before jumping out and stabbing people at random, police said.

Assistant Commander Mark Rowley said: "Inquiries are ongoing to confirm the identity of their accomplice".

Yesterday the third attacker was named as Youssef Zaghba, an Italian national of Moroccan descent, who was living in east London. He was not charged, but local police monitored him carefully and said they had tipped off Britain when he subsequently moved to London.

Those arrested were aged from 19 to 60.

The three, who were not connected to the weekend attack on London Bridge, are being questioned at a south London police station. "There are three deaths and eight wounded on the French side", Macron was quoted by Fox News as saying.

Police said there would be "increased physical measures on London's bridges to keep the public safe".

Reaction to the attack has dominated the final days of campaigning before Thursday's general election, with opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and others criticizing May for cutting police numbers by roughly 20,000 during her tenure as home secretary.

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the main opposition party, called on May to resign over the issue, saying earlier that "you can not protect the public on the cheap", and promising to recruit another 10,000 police officers if he is elected into power.
