    • London Bridge Terrorist Entered UK as a Refugee With His Parents

    Was shown in documentary praying next to Islamist flag

    Paul Joseph Watson | - June 5, 2017

    One of the terrorists who carried out Saturday night’s deadly rampage in London arrived in the UK as a refugee with his Pakistani parents.“27-year-old Khuram Shazad Butt came to Britain as a child when his parents sought asylum from Pakistan,” reports Sky News.

    Manchester bomber Salman Ramadan Abedi was also the son of “refugees” who arrived from Libya.
    Butt also held misogynistic views, although don’t expect feminists to be kick up a fuss about it.

    “One woman, who didn’t want to be named, said he stared angrily whenever he saw women cycling on the estate. She described it as “sinister” and “sexist”.”

    Perhaps leftists will now demand that western women be banned from cycling so as not to offend potential terrorists.

    Butt also featured in a Channel 4 documentary called The Jihadis Next Door in which he was seen displaying an Islamist flag and praying with other Muslim men in a park.

    The same documentary features another individual who sardonically laughs when he says that his Islamist views being in line with ISIS propaganda is just a “coincidence”.

    When asked if he supports ISIS, the man responds, “no comment,” before subsequently admitting that he would be arrested if he properly answered the question.

    The fact is that at the bare minimum there are 3,000 such individuals roaming the UK who will never be arrested or deported for their jihadist views because Britain is a country where being politically correct is deemed to be more important than stopping terrorism.

    London attack: Third London Bridge attacker named

    • 26 minutes ago 6/6/17

    Image caption Khuram Butt, Rachid Redouane and Youssef Zaghba carried out the London Bridge attacks The third London Bridge attacker has been named as 22-year-old Youssef Zaghba, a Moroccan-Italian man.

    Pakistan-born Khuram Butt, 27, and Rachid Redouane, 30, both from Barking were the other two attackers.

    Meanwhile, another victim has been named as Australian nurse Kirsty Boden, 28, who her family said had run towards London Bridge to help people.

    Seven people were killed and 48 injured in Saturday night's attack - the three attackers were shot dead by police.

    Fresh arrest

    Zaghba, Butt and Redouane drove a hired van into pedestrians on London Bridge at 21:58 BST before stabbing people in the area around Borough Market.

    Armed officers killed all three within eight minutes of receiving a 999 call.
    The Metropolitan Police said Butt had been subject to an investigation in 2015, but there had been no suggestion this attack was being planned.

    Media captionKhuram Butt was shown in a documentary about extremists In other developments:

    • Theresa May says she expects a review will be launched by the police and security services following the attack, amid an election row over police numbers
    • The Metropolitan Police said a 27-year-old man had been arrested in Barking on Tuesday in connection with the investigation
    • A property in Ilford, east London, was also searched by police at about 01:30 BST, but no arrests had been made, the Met said
    • The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall visited injured members of the public at the Royal London Hospital
    • NHS England said 32 people remained in hospital, with 15 in a critical condition
    • A national one-minute silence was held in the UK in memory of those who were killed
    • All 12 people arrested on Sunday after the attack have now been released without charge

    The so-called Islamic State (IS) group has said its "fighters" carried out the attack.
    An Italian police source has confirmed to the BBC that Zaghba, who lived in east London, had been placed on a watch list, which is shared with many countries including the UK.

    In March 2016, Italian officers stopped Zaghba at Bologna airport and found IS-related materials on his mobile phone. He was then stopped from continuing his journey to Istanbul.

    Redouane was a chef who also used the name Rachid Elkhdar and police said he claimed to be Moroccan-Libyan. He married a British woman in Dublin in 2012 and lived in Rathmines in the Irish capital.

    What did police know about Khuram Butt?

    Butt worked as a customer services assistant at Transport for London Butt featured in a Channel 4 documentary last year about Islamist extremists with links to the jailed preacher Anjem Choudary called The Jihadis Next Door.

    The married father-of-two, who worked for London Underground as a trainee customer services assistant for nearly six months last year, could be seen in the programme arguing with police officers in the street, after displaying a flag used by IS in a London park.

    Two people in Barking, east London, had also raised concerns about Butt, BBC home affairs correspondent Dominic Casciani said.

    Metropolitan Police assistant commissioner Mark Rowley said an investigation into Butt began in 2015, but "there was no intelligence to suggest that this attack was being planned and the investigation had been prioritised accordingly".

    At any one time there are about 500 active counter-terrorism investigations concerning 3,000 people of interest.

    Who were the victims?

    Image caption James McMullan, Chrissy Archibald and Kirsty Boden were all killed in the attack So far three of those killed in the attack have been named.

    Ms Boden worked as a staff nurse at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital in London. Her family have described her in a statement as an "outgoing, kind and generous person".
    "We are so proud of Kirsty's brave actions which demonstrate how selfless, caring and heroic she was, not only on that night, but throughout all of her life," they added.

    The hospital said that Ms Boden was "an outstanding nurse and a hugely valued member of the staff team in Theatres Recovery, described by her colleagues as 'one in a million' who always went the extra mile for the patients in her care".

    Canadian national Chrissy Archibald, 30, was the first victim to be named. Her family said she had died in her fiancé's arms after being struck by the attackers' speeding van.
    And the family of 32-year-old James McMullan, from Hackney, east London, say they believe he also died.

    Mr McMullan's sister said he was believed to be among those who died, after his bank card was found on a body at the scene.

    A French national was also killed in the attack, according to foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian.

    The Met have set up a casualty bureau on 0800 096 1233 and 020 7158 0197 for people concerned about friends or relatives.
