The surveillance camera footage shows the first police vehicle rolling forward as the attackers lunge at a man to stab him late Saturday night.

Officials said assailants plowed into pedestrians on London Bridge using a van, then drove to Borough Market, where they attacked people with knives.

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. Butt and Redouane both lived in Barking, east London.

Police have previously said eight officers who rushed to scene fired about 50 rounds, killing the three attackers. But he changed, she said, when he went to Britain about a year ago and was seduced by radical views propagated on the internet. They said they were unaware of the other two men.

Italian authorities said Zaghba had been stopped and questioned in Italy but had not been charged with any crime.

Along with Rachid Redouane, 30, the men died in a hail of police gunfire after spending eight minutes laying waste to the nightlife of south London.

In a statement, they wrote: "As a family we are shocked and appalled by the actions of Khuram and his associates".

The information offered so far by British authorities on Echeverria's death has been "sufficient and correct", said Ana Echeverria, the youngest sister of the victim.

"When they asked him what he was going to do in Istanbul, rather than saying "tourist" he said 'terrorist, '" Collina told The Associated Press and other media, calling that a "mental lapse" and not a sign of intent. But he successfully got them back after a court determined there wasn't enough evidence to arrest him.

Several people had alerted police to Butt's extremist views and he also appeared previous year in a documentary, "The Jihadis Next Door", in which he is shown unfurling a black-and-white flag associated with the Islamic State group.

According to the paper, the images were captured near Butt's gym, the Ummah Fitness Centre in Ilford, east London, and show Redouane placing his phone on the floor, before the men move down the road for 10 minutes. "My thoughts and efforts now are with trying to bring up my daughter with the knowledge that someday I will have to try and explain to her why her father did what he did".

"He wanted to go to Syria, yes".

Police have made more than a dozen arrests in the wake of the London Bridge attacks, but most have now been released without charge.

"Something very sad, very hard, is becoming more handsome and grand, making us appreciate even more our brother, our family, our friends and our country", said Ana.

Scotland Yard has confirmed that Butt was known to police and MI5 but said there was "no intelligence to suggest that this attack was being planned" and the probe "had been prioritised accordingly".
