Video shows the moment police shot London Bridge terrorists

The latest tragedy came last Saturday when, again, terrorists used a white rental van to mow down several people, this time on the London Bridge.

The British man who died in the London Bridge terrorist attack would not have wanted the country to become divided by hatred, his former girlfriend has said.

Khuram Shazad Butt, 27 and born in Pakistan, was known to the police and MI5, the domestic intelligence service.

After three deadly attacks in less than three months, police said they could hardly keep tabs on 3,000 people on the terror watch list and 20,000 who have been on the intelligence radar in the past, even with sweeping new surveillance laws, particularly for online communications. Police and MI5 - the UK's security and counterintelligence agency - were familiar with him, but there was no intelligence to suggest the weekend attack was being planned, Met Police said. He was working at reception of a local fitness center.

"We renew our call for the next elected government to make the urgent appointment of a counter-extremism co-ordinator serving under the prime minister to co-ordinate the government's counter- extremism policy across all departments".

He appeared in a Channel 4 documentary entitled "The Jihadis Next Door" about British extremists that was broadcast a year ago, local media reported.

- Neighbors in Barking told CNN that they had recognized Butt as one of the three dead attackers from Saturday night.

All those arrested on June 4, as part of the London attack investigation, have been released, according to a statement released by London Metropolitan Police on Monday, reports TASS.

DUP enters into discussions with Conservative Party
While the DUP has always been Eurosceptic, it does not want to see a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic. In the past, Corbyn has been a supporter of the left-wing Sinn Fein Party and the pro-independence Irish Republican Army.

Butt was reported to anti-terror police over fears he was attempting to radicalise schoolchildren, according to reports.

He said of Butt: "We will probably discover information on covert communications that were (not in) our knowledge that if we had access to those communications it may have changed our judgment".

The final attacker was named as Youssef Zaghba, a 22-year-old Italian national of Moroccan descent and lived in east London.

The announcement came as United Kingdom authorities faced new questions over how one of the London Bridge attackers was let into Britain despite being on a security watch list.
