Khuram Butt and Rachid Redouane named as London Bridge terrorists - everything we know about them


The ringleader of the London Bridge terror attack who was photographed on the ground with canisters strapped to his body was today named by police as Khuram Butt
Butt, 27, of Barking, East London, is believed to have led the trio of terrorists who ploughed into pedestrians using a hired van, before stabbing revellers in pubs and bars on Saturday night.
Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said Butt was known to police and MI5 but said there had been no evidence of "attack planning" and he had been deemed as a 'low priority.'
A second man Rachid Redouane, 30, also from Barking was named by police as one of the other two attackers.  Redouane was unknown to police.  The third man is not a UK citizen. 
Today it emerged that Butt had appeared in the Channel 4 documentary The Jihadis Next Door, which warned of the rise of extreme Islam in London.
