Police shot dead wounded Muslim terrorists as they writhed on the street after London Bridge attack

Police shot dead wounded London Bridge terrorists as they writhed on the street moments after one of them wiped victims’ blood off his knife with his BEARD, inquest hears

The leader of the London Bridge attackers ran his knife under a tap to clean off the blood after stabbing two kneeling victims, then wiped it on his beard before continuing his attack, an inquest has heard.

Khuram Butt, 27, Rachid Redouane, 30, and Youssef Zaghba, 22, ploughed into pedestrians on the bridge then attacked random members of the public with pink 12in ceramic knives.

Footage released today shows their white hire van crossing the famous bridge seconds before it mounted the pavement.
