POLICE IN THE UK have named two of the London attackers as Khuram Butt and Rachid Redouane.

The two, who were both from the Barking area of London, were shot dead as they carried out the attack which left seven people dead and dozens in a critical condition.

Police have said Butt was known to security services but there had been no evidence of “attack planning”.

Butt was 27 and a British citizen born in Pakistan, while Redouane was 30 and “claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan”, national counter-terrorism police chief Mark Rowley said in a statement.

Redouane had lived in the Rathmines area of south Dublin last year with his English partner who he married while here.  He was not being monitored by gardaí.
