THE ELIZABETH FRY apartments look like any other public housing complex in suburban London. The drab gray buildings overlook a quiet tree-lined street, where residents carry groceries or walk their children home from school.

Yet these flats in Barking, a blue-collar neighborhood in London’s East End, were home to a dangerous member of an Islamist death cult: Khuram Shazad Butt. The 27-year-old British national of Pakistani descent led the three-man jihadi cell that killed eight people in the June 3 ramming and knife attacks at London Bridge and Borough Market. Police shot Butt and his two accomplices dead outside a pub, and a day later, the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) took responsibility for the assault. We still don’t know how the men planned the attack, but we do know they shared a desire to kill and maim innocent people in the name of their warped version of Islam. We also know that two of them, Butt and Rachid Redouane, a 30-yearold Moroccan-Libyan, came from Barking—a suburb of 76,000 people that has come under intense focus in the aftermath of the attacks.
