London June 06 (TNS): The third London Bridge attacker has been named as Youssef Zaghba, a Moroccan-Italian man.

Pakistan-born Khuram Butt, 27, and Rachid Radouane, 30, both from Barking were the other two attackers.

Meanwhile, another victim has been named as Australian Kirsty Boden, who her family said ran towards London Bridge in an effort to help people.

Seven people were killed and 48 injured in the attack which began at 21:58 BST on Saturday night.

NHS England said 36 people remained in hospital, with 18 in a critical condition.

Ms Boden’s family described her in a statement as an “outgoing, kind and generous person”.

“We are so proud of Kirsty’s brave actions which demonstrate how selfless, caring and heroic she was, not only on that night, but throughout all of her life,” they added.

Butt and his two accomplices drove a hired van into pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing people in the area around Borough Market.

All three men were shot dead by police within eight minutes of receiving a 999 call.

Butt had featured in a Channel 4 documentary The Jihadis Next Door, broadcast last year.

Radouane was a chef who also used the name Rachid Elkhdar and police said he claimed to be Moroccan-Libyan.

All 12 people arrested on Sunday after the London attack have now been released without charge.

On Tuesday, counter-terror officers were searching a property in Ilford, east London, after entering the address at around 01:30 BST. No arrests had been made, police said. Courtesy BBC

  1. With everything that seems to be developing inside this specific subject matter, your perspectives tend to be rather stimulating. Even so, I am sorry, but I can not give credence to your whole idea, all be it exhilarating none the less. It appears to me that your opinions are actually not completely validated and in reality you are generally your self not really completely convinced of the point. In any case I did appreciate reading through it.
