One of the suspects in the London attack who was shot dead by police on Saturday was carrying an Irish identity card, the Press Association reported on Monday, June 5.

The Irish Times reported that the card was purportedly issued by Irish police. These ID cards, issued to vetted foreign nationals by the Garda National Immigration Bureau, include the holder’s name and date of birth, and are proof that the holder has legal residency in Ireland.

Gardaí and British police are working to establish beyond doubt that the dead man is the same person featured on the card found and that the card is genuine.


The man, who was of Moroccan origin, spent time living in the Rathmines area of Dublin in 2016.


Ireland’s Department of Justice said: “The expert threat assessment is that while an attack here is possible it is unlikely and that there is no specific information in relation to any threat to Ireland from international terrorism.”

But how was he vetted and how was he connected with London terrorists?

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
