LONDON (Reuters) – 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 offences and released from prison last year.
“This individual was known to authorities, having been convicted in 2012 for terrorism offences,” said Britain’s top counter-terrorism police officer Neil Basu in a statement.
“He was released from prison in December 2018 on licence and clearly, a key line of enquiry now is to establish how he came to carry out this attack.”
