Police ID 2 attackers in deadly London terrorist strike – ABC News
Two of the three attackers involved in the attack on London Bridge and Borough Market on Saturday night have been identified by Metropolitan Police.
While formal identification has yet to take place, detectives believe Khuram Shazad Butt and Rachid Redouane, both from Barking, east London, were involved in the attacks.
All three attackers were confronted and shot dead by armed officers within eight minutes of being called, police noted.
Earlier today, British Prime Minister Theresa May called for a “much more robust approach to dealing with extremism” after Saturday’s terrorist attack in London that killed seven people and injured dozens more.
The prime minister made the remarks in response to questions from reporters after a campaign speech in central London.
May hailed police actions in response to Saturday’s attacks, which she said “saved countless lives,” but said, “We have seen overall too much tolerance of extremism in this country,” and repeated her call for a commission to take up “the necessary task of stamping out extremism.”
May held an emergency meeting earlier today to organize the government’s response to the attack, the third deadly terrorist event to hit the U.K. in less than three months.
