fridays london bridge attack we can bring in a young son yeah a counterterrorism consultants at the modern. security consulting group thank you very much for being with us at this hour here on- fronts t twenty four now british police say that they're working around the clock to find out what happens at this friday. but they are clearly treating this as terrororism. ys good evening well everything points to it- the type e of attack d. d. course to take the key factor being they do use- of a fake suicide belt usually this is a tactic that is going to two very well known- terrororist groups. i think-n in t the wake of the attack and you're not going on this occacasion i think more evidenc- came up that says certainly- there. s. frame this as being a terrorist attack. no group or individual has yet to come forward to claim responsibility but what are your own thoughts about who could be behind this.
3:37 pm
well that. that's the problem is that- t this type of attatack where as of a few years ago- with. a fair amamount of certainty you could point to one group or another hasas been- cocoopted by by. pretty muchh every type of extremism right now and so it could have been the far right it could have been- of course the- your religious based extremism. so this is no longer. an attack or in the modus operandi did date is only link to one type of group or one type of extremism it's coopted by everyone- but the- of course the use of a fake suicide belt. could point- towards the and religious space- type of group however i did still sorelely in say informatation so console scars that we can't really point ten point with accuracy it's that type of group. now for those viewers who are watching who want to tenchi familiar with this kind of probe just what will investigators be doing in the coming hours. and days to
3:38 pm
find out what this man's motives were. well as your correspondent mention of course it will be about- verifying all the electronic devices- every type of electronic communication could have been found. all the clues that can be found where that person- was living. and working depending on on that- clothes that were found. also any any person of. interest contacts and partners a former co workers to try to define just know that that's where it just how far to web reaches who's involved. and more importantly just. to try to find out. if the level of. a van threat is the threat level still higher in relation to this case was he part of a broader network that could be preparing something else was he- involved are. preparing something on his own with minimal support and those are the biggest closed as well half or the biggest elements that will have to be cleared. over the next hours and days. this is also of course a very big test for the british prime
