British police name Youssef Zaghba as 3rd London Bridge attacker

British police name Youssef Zaghba as 3rd London Bridge attacker

Police said 22-year-old Youssef Zaghba lived in east London and that his family has been notified, adding that he had not been considered to be a "subject of interest" to either police or the intelligence services.

The third London Bridge attacker was named today as Youssef Zaghba, a 22-year-old Moroccan-Italian.

Italian news reports said authorities sequestered Zaghba's cell phone and passport when he was stopped at the airport, but that he successfully got them back after a court determined there wasn't enough evidence to accuse him of any terrorism-related crime. A year ago it received 3 billion queries from police and border officials across Europe.

Redouane had not been known to the security agencies.

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for its "fighters" carrying out the attack.

Police have said Redouane was not known to security services.

The nearby London Bridge station was operational though one of the exits that leads to the cordoned off area on Borough High Street remained closed.

Between this and the fact that one of the other jihadis appeared on a TV show about jihadism, imagine the sort of threats United Kingdom intelligence must be dealing with to render these two obviously risky cretins a low enough priority by comparison to let them fall through the cracks. The couple, who were visiting London for the weekend, were walking south over London Bridge around the time the attack started, according to police.

Italian authorities put him on a watch list and flagged his presence to Moroccan and British counterparts, according to the Corriere della Sera newspaper.

Police phoned his mother who, according to the source, said she had been anxious about her son because he had talking about jihad.

Redouane was never under surveillance by Irish authorities, and Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald urged caution in speculating about his movements.

British counterterror chiefs say that while Butt was investigated in 2015, he was deemed a low risk.

What happened? How can he possibly be on a Channel 4 programme and then committing atrocities like this?' And that is a question that will need to be answered by MI5, by the police, as the investigation goes on.

His mother, Valeria Khadija Collina, a convert to Islam who is separated from the attacker's Morocco-based father, told Italian weekly L'Espresso that she thought her son had been radicalised by a combination of online propaganda and contacts in London.

After the airport stop, Italy's Internal Intelligence Service passed on details to the liaison officer for the U.K.'s foreign security agency - MI6 - in Italy, who also relayed the information to MI5, two Italian security sources said.

The media outlet reported that Italian intelligence had made Zaghba's presence and movements known to both Moroccan and United Kingdom authorities.

His name was also added by the police in Bologna to an European Union security database. The U.K. Home Office declined to comment when asked if this was the case.

He spent a total of 10 days in Italy in the past year and a half, the Bologna prosecutor said.

At the time of the London Bridge attacks, Zaghba had been working in a London restaurant and was in touch with his mother.

He was born in the Moroccan city of Fez in 1995. "They were in Morocco for many years and the young man can only have returned while travelling between Morocco, where he lived, and London", the mayor said. The son stayed with his father until January 2016. At that point he began flying regularly between London and Bologna.
