The Moroccan-Italian man identified as the third London attacker told Italian authorities "I'm going to be a terrorist" when he was stopped at Bologna Airport previous year trying to travel to Syria, it has been reported. British police on Tuesday named the third London Bridge attacker as an Italian national of Moroccan descent, and Itali.
Counter-terror agencies are already facing intense scrutiny after it was revealed another member of the terror gang, Khuram Shazad Butt, 27, had been known to security services.
The terrifying assault that resulted in the death of 7 people took place on Saturday when three masked men drove a van into pedestrians on the bridge before jumping out of the van and stabbing random people, the Police statement mentioned.
Seven people were killed and dozens wounded in the attacks by three assailants near London Bridge. Eighteen people remain in critical condition.
Italian media reports suggest Italian authorities had warned British and Moroccan police about the dangers he posed, after he was stopped at Bologna airport in 2016 attempting to make his way to Syria.
But an announcement - made before the Manchester and London Bridge attacks - that they planned to make some of the elderly pay more for their care saw that lead start to shrink, and the trend has continued.
According to news website Politico, however, Italian authorities had passed on information about Zaghba to British security services.
Zaghba was stopped at Bologna's airport trying to fly to Turkey in March previous year over concerns he was intending to travel on to Syria, according to reports.
Italian authorities informed their British counterparts in April a year ago about Zaghba's efforts to join Isis.
Butt was known to police and was "openly fundamentalist", NPR's Eleanor Beardsley reports from London. He was seen in the programme among a group of men unfurling the black flag of Isis and then in a confrontation with the police.
Police said they were still working to establish the identity of the third attacker. "I'm sure the police will look into what they knew, what they could have done, what they did do and if anything could have been done differently", the mayor said in a BBC interview.
Italian police seized his phone and several SIM cards but did not arrest him because he had not committed a crime.
Butt had been investigated in 2015, was known by neighbours to be an extremist and was featured previous year in a documentary on Britain's Channel 4 called "The Jihadis Next Door". Redouane had claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan. Ireland's national broadcaster RTE reported that Redouane had an Irish residency card and had lived in Dublin. The search in Ilford, just north of Barking, is seeking to determine whether the group had accomplices.
Butt was investigated by officers in 2015 but they found no evidence he was planning an attack and he was "prioritised in the lower echelons of our investigative work", police said.
The Metropolitan Police said on Tuesday that the 22-year-old had yet to be formally identified but detectives were confident it was him and had informed his family.
They also published images of a white auto which investigators believe Abedi took items from to build the bomb.
Prime Minister Theresa May, who called the snap election in hopes of strengthening her mandate for discussions over Britain's exit from the European Union, has come under fire for the cuts to police numbers in recent years.
May has vowed to crack down on extremist content online, warning the public: "We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are".
