Former wife of London attacker speaks out

LONDON -- The former wife of one of the London Bridge attackers says she is "deeply shocked, saddened and numbed" by her ex-partner's actions. 

Charisse O'Leary issued a statement on Wednesday saying she and 30-year-old Moroccan pastry chef Rachid Redouane had a daughter together and split up about six months ago. 

O'Leary condemned Redouane's role in the attacks that "killed and injured so many innocent people" and says she did not support his beliefs.

She said: "My thoughts and efforts now are with trying to bring up my daughter with the knowledge that someday I will have to try and explain to her why her father did what he did." 

Police shot and killed Redouane and two accomplices during Saturday night's rampage, which claimed the lives of eight people and wounded nearly 50 others. 

British police arrested 12 people on Sunday in connection with the attack. 

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISISclaimed responsibility for the incident.
