3rd French victim of London Bridge attacks confirmed

Counter-terror police arrested the pair during an operation on a street in Ilford, east London, Scotland Yard said.

The body was recovered near Limehouse, downstream from London Bridge, at around 7.45pm on Tuesday by specialist officers from the marine police unit.

Detectives from Met's Counter Terrorism Command, supported by armed police, swooped on properties in east London overnight.

The Metropolitan Police said they had reviewed security ahead of the vote, putting in place a "specialist and highly flexible operation" which can be deployed as needed.

Collina said she understood the anguish felt by the family and friends of those killed and injured in the attack and vowed to try to prevent other young Muslims from becoming radicalised.

London, Jun 8 British police investigating the deadly London Bridge attack arrested three men in new raids in east London, as a video released today showed the frenzied tense moments just before the attackers, including a man of pakistani origin, were gunned down by armed police officers.

One of the men, aged 27, was held on suspicion of the preparation of terrorist acts, while a 33-year-old was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply controlled drugs.

The arrests follow the detention on a 30-year-old man as detectives raided an address in Ilford in the early hours of Wednesday.

Eight people were killed and dozens injured when three terrorists drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing people in the area Saturday night.

The other two attackers were identified as Khurum Butt, a 27-year-old whose extremist views had been reported to police, and 30-year-old Rachid Redouane, also known as Rachid Elkhdar, a Moroccan pastry chef. We strongly condemn these actions. "Since discovering that it was Rachid that was responsible I have shed many tears for the people caught up in this horrific incident", O'Leary said.

Police have previously said eight officers who rushed to scene fired about 50 rounds, killing the three attackers.

The Italian mother of one of the London Bridge attackers said today her 22-year-old son became radicalised in Britain, falling under the spell of Islamic extremism and confiding to her that he had dreams of moving to Syria. "My thoughts and efforts now are with trying to bring up my daughter with the knowledge that someday I will have to try and explain to her why her father did what he did". "Innocent people are killed in this action".
