While a formal identification is yet to take place, investigators believe he is 22-year-old Youssef Zaghba from East London.

So far four of those killed in the attack have been named as Australian Kirsty Boden, Canadian national Chrissy Archibald, James McMullan, from Hackney, and French national Alexandre Pigeard.

Nathalie Cros Brohan, sister of Thomas's girlfriend Christine Delcros, posted on Facebook on Wednesday morning that the family "fear the worst".

Two men were arrested on a street in Ilford and the third was apprehended at an Ilford residence when police searched the home, authorities said.

Thomas is one of three French nationals feared dead after Saturday's attack.

Khuram Shazad Butt, 27, and 30-year-old Rachid Redouane were named as two of the suspects, London's Metropolitan Police said Monday.

"Officers from the Met's Counter Terrorism Command, supported by officers from the Territorial Support Group, entered the address in Ilford at around 0130hrs".

Apple introduces HomePod smart-speaker and variety of upgrades
That's an unusual departure, as Apple usually reveals at least a few new tvOS software features at its developer conference. The " HomePod " speaker unveiled Monday is similar to devices from rivals, some of which have been on the market for years.

Since the attack, 17 people have been arrested, 12 of whom have since been released without charge.

Redouane was 30 and "claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan".

They were walking over London Bridge when the three assailants in a van mowed down pedestrians on the bridge and then launched a stabbing spree in and around bars in nearby Borough Market.

The fact that Butt was known to authorities before to the attacks has called into question Prime Minister Theresa May's record.

"We got blocked in". A CNN report has since claimed that he was on the watchlist of Italy after being "stopped at the Bologna airport by Italian airport police in March 2016 as he was trying to board a plane bound for Istanbul".

Butt, 27, was a British citizen born in Pakistan who was known to security services, while Italian authorities said they warned the United Kingdom that 22-year-old Zaghba was a "possible suspect".

The father-of-two, who reportedly appeared on Channel 4 documentary The Jihadis Next Door, was investigated in 2015 but was part of a probe "prioritised in the lower echelons of our investigative work", Mr Rowley said.
