Police name London Bridge attacker, previously convicted of terrorism offenses

Published: Updated:

British police named the man who stabbed two people to death in London on Friday in what the authorities called a terrorist attack as 28-year-old Usman Khan, who had been previously convicted of terrorism offenses and released from prison last year.

“This individual was known to authorities, having been convicted in 2012 for terrorism offenses,” said Britain’s top counter-terrorism police officer Neil Basu in a statement.

“He was released from prison in December 2018 on license and clearly, a key line of inquiry now is to establish how he came to carry out this attack,” he added.
