[T]he Met’s Counter Terrorism Command has released the name and photograph of the third attacker shot dead by police following the terrorist attacks on London Bridge and at Borough Market on Saturday.

While formal identification is yet to take place, detectives believe he is 22-year-old Youssef Zaghba, from east London. The deceased’s family have been informed.

He is believed to be an Italian national of Moroccan dissent. He was not a police or MI5 subject of interest.

All three men involved in the attack were confronted and shot dead by armed officers within eight minutes of the first call.

The other two were named yesterday (Monday, 5 June) by detectives as: Khuram Shazad Butt, 27 (20.4.90), from Barking, was a British citizen who was born in Pakistan; and Rachid Redouane, 30 (31.7.86), from Barking, had claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan. He also used the name Rachid Elkhdar, with a different date of birth of 31.7.91.

Detectives would like to hear from anyone who has any information about these men that may assist them with the investigation. They are particularly keen to hear about places they may have frequented and their movements in the days and hours before the attacks.

Detectives have also arrested a man at an address in Barking this morning, Tuesday, 6 June.

[M], a 27-year-old man, was arrested under the Terrorism Act at approximately 08.05hrs today.

A search warrant is being executed at an address in Barking.

Enquiries ongoing.

Twelve others arrested under the investigation have all been released without charge.
