  White House hold on Ukraine aid violated federal law, congressional watchdog says The decision comes as the Senate prepares for President Trump’s impeachment trial.The White House violated federal law in its hold on security aid to Ukraine last year, according to a decision by a congressional watchdog released on Thursday and reviewed by The Washington Post.

Darryn Frost, 38, said the US President’s decision to kill Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad, Iraq, on January 3 in a drone strike would fuel terrorism.

He told the Guardian: “The next generation of terrorists will rise as a direct result of these actions and we must condemn them now”.

The tensions in the Middle-East de-escalated after Iran launched a counter-attack at bases in Iraq used by US troops but did not kill or injure anyone.

Iran later admitted it had accidentally shot down a Ukranian plane, killing 176 people aboard, after it’s military had mistaken the aircraft for a cruise missile.

Mr Frost was hailed as a hero after he grabbed a narwhal tusk from the wall in Fishmongers’ Hall, in London Bridge, as Usman Khan went on a stabbing spree on November 29 during a prisoner rehabilitation programme.

Khan, armed with two knives and wearing a fake suicide vest, killed Saskia Jones and Jack Merritt, both 23, in the attack before he was shot dead.

South African Mr Frost, who works for HM Prisons and Probation, was filmed fending of Khan with the artefact along with two other men.

Mr Frost previously said: “When we heard the noise from the floor below, a few of us rushed to the scene.

“I took a narwhal tusk from the wall and used it to defend myself and others from the attacker.

“Another man was holding the attacker at bay with a wooden chair.”

Mr Frost, who has been a resident in the UK for 14 years, added: “I ran down the stairs, stood next to the man with the chair, and the two of us confronted the attacker.

“He had knives in both hands and, upon seeing me with the narwhal tusk, pointed at his midriff.

“He turned and spoke to me, then indicated he had an explosive device around his waist.

Mr Frost passed the tusk to his unarmed comrade before racing back upstairs to find another to use.

When he returned, he found the first tusk “shattered across the floor” and saw people fleeing the building.

He said: “Along with others, I pursued the attacker, tusk in hand, on to the bridge.

“We called out to warn the public of the danger and, after a struggle, managed to restrain him to the ground.

“At that point I was trying to isolate the blades by holding his wrists so that he could not hurt anyone or set off the device.”
