Earlier, Britain police named Pakistani-origin Khurram Butt and Moroccan-origin British Rachid Redouane as two of three accused of the attack.

Khuram Butt, a 27-year-old father of two, had been known to police.

The three terrorists were dead - eight minutes after they drove their van into London Bridge and started stabbing anyone they could find.

"Since then, every time he came back to Italy someone would wait for him at the airport and someone would come home here to talk to him, it was an intense job the one done by Italian police", she said. A third attacker is yet to be named.

Lord Carlile, a former counter-terror laws watchdog, told the Press Association: "In my view, we need to review what happened in his case, and learn the lessons so that the methodology of the response to known suspicions is improved". It was unclear if he was detained.

Mr Khan, 36, said the younger man had been radicalised by watching videos on YouTube, spoke of wanting to travel to Syria to fight and had an excellent knowledge of Islamic texts. "This has destroyed our family's pride".

One of those attackers, Khuram Shazad Butt, was a known extremist and had even appeared in Channel 4 documentary "The Jihadis Next Door".

He added that Khurram was himself responsible if he was involved in any terrorist incident, and my family and I should not be linked with the attack.

It had been set at "critical" in the days after the Manchester concert bombing on May 22 that killed 22 people - reflecting a judgment that an attack might be imminent because accomplices with similar bombs might be on the loose. He was also accused of training other terror suspects in Britain, though Shahid's whereabouts were not immediately confirmed late Tuesday.

London attacks: What we know
A witness told CNN two men entered a restaurant at Borough Market, just south of London Bridge, and stabbed two people inside. A large number of police officers were seen gearing up with helmets and riot gear, believed to be on the hunt for suspects.

Italian intelligence officials reportedly communicated this to their United Kingdom counterparts. During the attack, they shouted: "this is for Allah". "That's where the question of resources comes into play". His mother was said to have told police past year that he had asked her for money to travel to Rome before he left on his attempted trip to Syria. The couple is thought to have split. One police officer is seen kicking the body of one of the dead attackers. Twelve were later released.

Zaghba was reportedly working in a London restaurant and had not been seen in Italy since 2016. British officials could not immediately confirm the reports.

Immediately after he was arrested at Bologna airport in March 2016, Italian authorities put the name of the third London terror attacker, Youssef Zaghba, on the worldwide intelligence circuit, sources said Tuesday. Twelve have been released without charge.

Authorities are facing pressure to detail whether an alert was flagged about Zaghba when he came into the United Kingdom and whether he was stopped at the border.

He was intercepted at Bologna airport a year ago as he was about to board a plane for Turkey with security officials alerted by the fact that he was travelling with only a small backpack, his passport and a one-way ticket to Istanbul.

An intelligence official with direct knowledge of the situation said that the relative is an influential businessman in the Jhelum district of Punjab province.

"We did everything we could have done", he said.

"We did everything we could but there was not sufficient basis to prove he was a terrorist, he was a suspect based on types of behaviour". "He was someone who was suspicious because of his way of behaving". "You should not even look at anything a little bit odd on the internet, you should see the right people and do the right things and it seemed like he was doing it", according to audio of her group interview provided by the ANSA news agency. She said she tried to keep him away from radical friends, but "he had the internet and from there he got everything".

The number of police officers in England and Wales fell by nearly 20,000 between 2010 and 2016 - years when May, as home secretary, was in charge of policing.
