London Attack: Police ‘Know Identities Of Killers’

Must read

Police investigating Saturday night’s terror attack in London say they know the identity of the three attackers who killed seven people and injured 48.

The Metropolitan Police said their names would be released “as soon as operationally possible.”

Attackers drove into pedestrians on London Bridge at about 22:00 BST before stabbing a number of people in Borough Market. They were shot dead by police.

The so-called Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Police said on Monday morning that officers were searching two addresses in east London – one in Newham and another in Barking.

A “number of people” were detained.

It comes after 12 people were arrested in Barking on Sunday following raids at a flat – believed to be the home of one of the attackers. A 55-year-old man has since been released without charge.
