Police in Britain has identified the man who stabbed two people to death and left two others injured in London on Friday, November 29.
Authorities have describe the attack by 28-year-old Usman Khan, an ex convict of terrorism offences as a terrorist attack.
A statement by Britain’s top counter-terrorism police officer, Neil Basu, said, “This individual was known to authorities, having been convicted in 2012 for terrorism offenses,” ABC News can report.
“He was released from prison in December 2018 on license and clearly, a key line of enquiry now is to establish how he came to carry out this attack.”
Reports indicate that the suspect was jailed for eight years in 2012 for plotting to bomb the London Stock Exchange and build an Islamic terror camp – but was released last year and had an ankle tag on when he committed the crime on Friday.
On June 3 2017, London Bridge was the scene of an attack when three militants drove a van into pedestrians and then attacked people in the surrounding area, killing eight and injuring at least 48. The attack focused attention on cuts to policing since the governing Conservatives took power in 2010.
