London attack: Police find body in Thames



Police searching for French national Xavier Thomas, 45, who has been missing since the London terror attack, have recovered a body from the Thames.

 
Scotland Yard said the body was recovered from the river near Limehouse on Tuesday at 19:44 BST.


Mr Thomas's next of kin have been told, police said, but formal identification has not yet taken place.


The BBC also understands Sara Zelenak, a 21-year-old Australian from Brisbane, is among the dead.



She was working as an au pair in London, and was seen fleeing from the knifemen during the attack.
Police have named Youssef Zaghba, a 22-year-old Moroccan-Italian man who lived in east London, Khuram Butt, 27, from Barking, and Rachid Redouane, 30, who also lived in Barking, as the men who carried out the attack.


They drove into pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing people in Borough Market on Saturday.
