Dramatic footage released showing deadly London attacks


Butt was the supposed ringleader of the London Bridge terror attack who was photographed on the ground wearing an Arsenal football shirt with canisters strapped to his body.

The information offered so far by British authorities on Echeverria's death has been "sufficient and correct", said Ana Echeverria, the youngest sister of the victim.

Footage seen by the Times showed the three terrorists, Butt, Rachid Redouane and Zaghba, meeting outside a gym in Barking, East London, days before the attack.

His family said: "While our pain will never diminish it is important for all of us to carry on with our lives in direct opposition to those who would try to destroy us".

Eight people died and 48 were injured in the attacks, including four unarmed policemen who had attempted to tackle the terrorists to the floor.

Public anger has grown at how the men were able to carry out an attack despite alarms being raised to the authorities, particularly after police revealed the Manchester bomber Salman Abedi was also known to intelligence services.

The British Transport Police officer, whose name was not disclosed, was stabbed in the head, face and leg and is still hospitalized after Saturday's attack.

The video shows a man crossing a deserted street in the market. "I'm so sorry I couldn't do more and I want you to know I did everything I could".

Among those also in custody are a 27-year-old man and 29-year-old man, both from Ilford, who were arrested on Wednesday night on suspicion of preparing terrorist acts.

The three were taken into custody at a south London police station under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act.

The officer, who had been on the job for less than two years, was one of the first on the scene.

The attack took place on Saturday when three men drove into pedestrians on London Bridge, before abandoning the vehicle and stabbing people in Borough Market.

Police have not identified the third attacker.

In a separate investigation, counter-terror police made a series of arrests in Ilford, east London, on Wednesday night in connection with the London Bridge atrocity.
