Two of the London Bridge terrorists named as Barking residents Khuram Shazad Butt and Rachid Redouane
From the Barking and Dagenham Post
Police have named two of the London Bridge terrorists as Barking residents Khuram Shazad Butt and Rachid Redouane.
Butt, a 27-year-old British citizen born in Pakistan, and Redouane, who claimed to be Moroccan-Libyan, both lived in the borough.

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said Butt was known to the security services, but there was no evidence of “attack planning” by him. “Inquiries are ongoing to confirm the identity of their accomplice,” Mr Rowley added.
Brett Freeman, from Dagenham, was enjoying a night out with friends when he was stabbed four times after three men – later shot dead by police in Borough Market– drove into pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing members of the public. Dagenham-based football team May and Bakers tweeted: “Thoughts with our midfield general from last season. Speedy recovery Brett!”
The third man, as yet unnamed is a foreign national. According to the Guardian Rachid Redouane was a Moroccan-Libyan pastry chef who had until recently been living in Dublin, according to Irish police sources.
Rachid Redouane is thought to have settled in the Irish capital about five years ago but does not appear to have come to the authorities’ notice before Saturday night’s terror attack. He is thought to have been identified from a card that was found on his body that had been issued by the Garda National Immigration Bureau in Dublin.
