London Bridge attacks – Counter Terrorism police appeal for information

The Met’s Counter Terrorism Command has now released the names and photographs of all three attackers shot dead by police during the terrorist attacks on London Bridge and at Borough Market on Saturday.

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

The three have been named 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.
  • Youssef Zaghba, 22, from east London. He is believed to be an Italian national of Moroccan descent. He was not a police or MI5 subject of interest.

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.

The police are asking that if you have any information about these three , no matter how insignificant you might think it is, please contact the anti-terrorism hotline on 0800 789 321. It may be a vital piece of information.

Media reports indicate that Khuram Shazad Butt worked for Transport for London on the London Underground at stations including Westminster, Canada Water and West Kensington last year, but failed his probation period over poor attendance.
