London Bridge terrorist ‘entered UK under false name and date of birth’, inquest hears | London

One of the London Bridge terrorists entered the UK under a false name and date of birth by convincing authorities he was five years younger, an inquest heard.

Rachid Redouane, 30, gave the Immigration Service the false alias Rachid Elkhdar, a court heard, and said he was five years younger.

The Moroccan along with Pakistani-born Khuram Shazad Butt, 27, and Italian national of Moroccan descent Youssef Zaghba, 22, all died from multiple gunshot wounds in Borough market on June 3.

On Tuesday their inquests were opened and adjourned at Southwark Coroner’s Court.

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Moring then explained how and where each died stating in each case all were shot by the police at Borough Market.

He said a provisional autopsy gave the provisional cause of death of Butt as “multiple gunshot wounds.”

Explaining how Butt was identified DCI Moring said:

He was identified by two primary means, the first being a set of fingerprints and a DNA profile.

The fingerprints matched that of a man named Khuram Butt and the DNA profile also matched a man by the name of Khuram Butt, date of birth 20 April 1990.
