    PARIS (Sputnik) — A DNA test confirmed the death of a second French citizen, considered missing, in the London attack on June 3, the French Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.

    The victim was named as 36-year old Sebastien Belanger, who had been living in the UK capital for seven years, the ministry said.

    On the evening of the attack, Belanger was at a bar in London's Borough Market.

    Another French citizen, Xavier Thomas, 46, is still missing.

    The first victim of the attack was earlier identified as a 27-year-old French man from the Saint-Malo district in Brittany, who worked in a bar in the Borough Market.

    The attack in London claimed 7 lives and injured 48 people. The assailants' truck ran over pedestrians on London Bridge and headed to the Borough Market afterwards, where three terrorists started stabbing people in a local bar.
