London attack: what we know about Khuram Shazad Butt

One of the men believed to have carried out the deadly weekend attack in central London was a known radical Islamist who was filmed unfurling a black flag resembling the one used by the Islamic State group and raised the suspicion of a neighbor after allegedly trying to lure local youngsters to join his jihadist campaign.

"Work is ongoing to understand more about (the attackers), their connections and whether they were assisted or supported by anyone else".

Khuram Shazad Butt was 27 and a British citizen born in Pakistan, police said in a statement.

"However, there was no intelligence to suggest that this attack was being planned, and the investigation had been prioritized accordingly", police said.

One of the attackers, Butt, had appeared in a documentary "The Jihadis Next Door" and was known to investigators but police said he was not believed to be plotting an attack. He and Butt both lived in Barking.

"Khuram Shazad Butt was known to the police and MI5", police said in a statement Monday, referring to Britain's main domestic intelligence agency.

CNN's Melissa Bell spoke to residents there who recognized a familiar face among the three dead attackers, identifying him as one of their neighbors and describing him as a family man who kept to himself.

He said hours after the latest terrorist carnage to strike the UK: "Terrible, bad news from London". Redouane was not known to the authorities, according to the police.

"As an individual he was a cool, calm guy".

"The acts of these three men on Saturday night was cowardly, was evil and I'm angry and furious that these three men are using to justify their actions the faith that I belong to", he said. Police arrested several people and are widening their investigation after a series of attacks descr. However, police were investigating what appeared to be Molotov cocktails in the back of the van, Sky News reported.

It had been set at "critical" in the days after the Manchester concert bombing on May 22 that killed 22 people - reflecting a judgment that an attack might be imminent because accomplices with similar bombs might be on the loose.

Hannah Stuart, author of Islamist Terrorism, a definitive analysis of United Kingdom attacks and offences, said: "Al-Muhajiroun is obviously very well known to both the police and to MI5". "We have given increased powers to the police to be able to deal with terrorists, powers which Jeremy Corbyn has boasted he has always opposed", she said.

The London attack, carried out by three knife-wielding men in a rented van, is apparently unconnected to the Manchester bombing. In a letter posted outside Tuesday, the Ummah Fitness Centre said staff would "help the police in any way we can".

One acquaintance, who said the man was a "wonderful guy", recalled the man playing football in the park with him and his children.

"It's just a fact that, over the last seven years, we as a city have lost 600 million pounds from our budgets".

"Our city has suffered two very bad terrorist attacks since I was elected as mayor - and we must do everything possible to stop there being any more", he said. "Two years ago, one of my children came home and told "Mummy, I want to be a Muslim so I can go to heaven", she said.

The Conservatives' lead over Labour has narrowed markedly from 20 points or more when May called the election in April to a range between one and 12 points now, although they are still widely expected to win a majority.

Another of the attackers has been named by police as Rachid Radouane, 30, from Barking.
