London: One of the London Bridge terrorists was carrying an identity card issued in Ireland when he was shot dead, security sources in Dublin said.

The revelation comes after reports one of the three men had also appeared in a Channel 4 documentary about jihadis in the UK.

The 27-year-old, said to be from Barking in east London, was pictured lying on the ground after police arrived on Saturday night and shot the attackers dead.

Seven people were killed and 49 injured when the trio drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing people in bars in nearby Borough Market.

Irish broadcaster RTE reported authorities found an Irish identity card on the body of one of the suspects, believed to be of Moroccan heritage, indicating he had previously lived in Ireland.
