(Adds reported link to attacker, description)
LONDON, June 4 Police raided a building in east
London that was the home address of one of the three attackers
who killed seven people in the city centre, Sky News reported on
Sunday, citing unnamed sources.
Police said they were looking into media reports linking the
raid to a Saturday night attack in which three people drove a
van into pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing revellers
nearby. Police did not confirm the two incidents were related.
Sky News also reported that four men and one woman had been
detained during the raid in Barking, east London, which was
launched at 0700 by armed police.
A Reuters witness described a heavy police presence and a
cordon around a block of flats as residents of other flats in
the building looked out from their windows onto the scene.
An eyewitness to the raid told Sky he heard several bangs
during the operation and was later told they were controlled
explosions used to gain access to the building.
