Two of the men shot dead by the British police following the London bridge and Borough market attack have been named. Khuram Shazad Butt (aged 27) and Rachid Redouane (aged 30) both lived in the same area in East London where police carried out further raids.
British police stated that one of the men Khuram Shazad Butt, had been investigated previously but was not deemed enough of a threat. Police also stated that the third attacker has also been identified but would not release his details at this stage.
Neighbours of attacker Khuram Shazad Butt said he was a very sociable character and seemed like an ordinary family man who did not show any signs of radicalism. Another neighbour said Butt had grown a longer a beard and started wearing traditional muslim clothes more often over the two years he had known him.
The second attacker Rachid Redouane, went by the alias Rachid Elkhdar and claimed to be Moroccan or Libyan, police said.
Police said on Monday they had released all 12 people arrested in the neighbourhood on Sunday without charge.
