Police arrest 3 more in London Bridge attack investigation

The third man, 29, was also arrested on suspicion of the preparation of terrorist acts and all three have been taken for questioning while detectives search the residential address and a business premises.

In total 15 men have arrested as part of the investigation, with 12 of those released without charge.

He said Zaghba was always tracked by Italian intelligence officers while in the country and that United Kingdom authorities were informed.

The father to a one year-old daughter had been living in Ireland just before the attack before moving back to Morocco following his 2012 marriage to United Kingdom citizen Charisse O'Leary.

Eight people were killed in the attack, including a Frenchman whose body was found in the river Thames on Tuesday, and 48 people were hospitalised.

Of the other two attackers, British officials say only one - Butt - was on law enforcement's radar, though he was not under suspicion of actively planning an attack.

A second source said Italian authorities had flagged him up to British authorities after he moved to England past year. Butt did not fall into that category when they last investigated him.

Earlier on Wednesday, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said he had spoken to the families of both Boden and Zelenak after Julie Bishop confirmed two Australians had been killed in London.

Scotland Yard seems to believe Zaghba has been in the capital for awhile, describing him as "of east London".

He said: "I am truly moved and overwhelmed by all the support and comments that I've received, not only from people in this country but across the world".

More details were not immediately available.

The trio used a van to deliberately target pedestrians on London Bridge, before beginning a stabbing frenzy in nearby Borough Market. Witnesses told the BBC that van hit "five or six people, ' then the attackers exited the vehicle and pursued others in a "rampage" in which hundreds ran for their lives".
