Third London Bridge attacker named

Rowley added: "At any one time MI5 and police are conducting around 500 active investigations, involving 3,000 subjects of interest".

The second alleged attacker was identified by police as Redouane, who alternately used the surname Elkhdar, and claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan.

The source said Zaghba's Italian mother lives in the northern Italian city of Bologna, confirming a report on the website of newspaper Corriere della Sera.

Italian authorities said Zaghba had been stopped and questioned in Italy but had not been charged with any crime. He was allegedly on his way to Syria and was carrying only a backpack.

His mother apparently then returned to Italy and lived in the Bologna area.

Despite finding ISIS propaganda videos on his cell phone, authorities failed to uncover enough evidence of links to terrorism to prosecute him and he was released.

Butt was previously known to police and domestic spy agency, MI5 and was a British citizen who had been born in Pakistan, the police said.

The identities of the two attackers announced Monday fit a pattern. A new search was underway Tuesday in Ilford, just north of Barking.

Police early Wednesday arrested a 30-year-old man in east London in connection to the attack and are searching his home.

Saturday night's rampage, in which Butt, Zaghba and Rachid Redouane drove into pedestrians on London Bridge before slitting throats and stabbing people in the bustling Borough Market area, was Britain's third Islamist attack in as many months.

Saturday night's attack injured dozens, including four police officers. The announcement came on the eve of Britain's general election. In particular, there are questions over whether investigators had the resources to look into complaints such as those leveled by Butt's neighbors about his attempts to radicalize children and whether crucial opportunities were missed.

Step 2 for France's new president: consolidating power
President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of last year's Paris accord, a government spokesman said on Wednesday. France's new president, Emmanuel Macron, is relentless in his efforts to one-up his USA counterpart, Donald Trump.

"However, there was no intelligence to suggest that this attack was being planned", the Metropolitan Police said.

Butt had worked for the London Underground for six months a year ago as a trainee customer services assistant, Transport for London told the BBC.

"You do not commit these disgusting acts in my name", he said to applause at a vigil on Monday.

"What they miss, in cutting numbers of police on the beat, as it were, is that community intelligence", Clarke told the BBC.

According to a poll published Tuesday by the group Survation, May's lead over Labour has shrivelled to just over a single point - 41.6 percent to 40.4 percent.

But with Britons due to vote in a national election on Thursday, her decision to reduce the number of police officers in England and Wales by nearly 20,000 during her six years as interior minister from 2010 to 2016 shot to the top of the political agenda. Redouane is thought to be from Barking, in east London.

Transport for London, which oversees the capital's transport network, has advised commuters to make alternative journeys as the station will be busy.

The country's official terror threat level remains at "severe", one notch below the highest.

It was the third terrorist attack in the United Kingdom in as many months, and came less than two weeks after a suicide bomber killed 22 people at a concert in Manchester.

May declined to say whether the third attacker was monitored or subject to an exclusion order when he returned to the United Kingdom after being stopped in Italy, and declined an opportunity to apologise for any failures by the intelligence agencies.
