Emmanuel Macron Confirms Third French Victim In London Terror Attack

Britain London Bridge Attack

The latest arrest comes as the city works to recover from the brutal attack in which the three armed men rammed a van into a crowd of pedestrians on London Bridge and fatally stabbed seven people at nearby Borough Market.

The other two French victims were named as waiter Alexandre Pigeard (27) and chef Sebastien Belanger (36).

In the footage, which was confirmed to be legitimate by the Metropolitan Police Service, a man can be seen fleeing one of the terrorists, who is swinging a knife at him.

Italian authorities said Zaghba had been stopped and questioned in Italy but had not been charged with any crime.

Police killed all three attackers.

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.

Associated Press writer Nicole Winfield in Rome contributed.

"People are going to look at the front pages today and they're going to say 'how on earth could we have let this guy or possibly more through the net?"

Butt had appeared in a television documentary called "The Jihadis Next Door", as one of a group of men who unfurled an Islamic State flag in a park and who had connections with known radical preachers.

Butt's family said Wednesday they were "shocked and appalled" by his actions.

"We strongly condemn these actions".

"He was under heavy police surveillance and everything could have led him to prison", said Ms Collina, who was "happy" that her son seemed to be "under police control".

A total of 21 people have been arrested so far in the investigation into the suicide bombing.

"I am deeply shocked, saddened and numbed by the actions of my ex-partner who has killed and injured so many innocent people", O'Leary said in a statement.

"My thoughts are with the people who died in the attack, but also with those that were injured and are recovering in hospital, including the three other officers that were injured, and all the members of the public who rushed to help".

The attack came just five days before Thursday's general election and has dominated the debate since.

Police have not identified the third attacker.
