Portrait of London Bridge Killer, in His Own Words

  Portrait of London Bridge Killer, in His Own Words LONDON — “I have learnt that many of my past beliefs came from my misinterpretations of Islam,” the young man wrote to his probation officers. Last Friday, the man who wrote those words, 28-year-old Usman Khan, traveled unsupervised from his probation hostel in England’s West Midlands to London, where he carried out a deadly terrorist attack after having participated in a conference on prison rehabilitation.

A new bridge is set to be built to cater for cyclists crossing the Liffey.

The plan, which is set to start in mid 2021, will see the unit be put between Samuel Beckett and Tom Clarke bridge and will only be for pedestrians and cyclists.

The bridge will have a two-way cycle lane as footpaths on each side.

It's expected to take 18 months to complete according to Dublin Chamber who've welcomed the plan as it will "make cycling in this part of the city much safer and more attractive".

What You Won’t Hear About the London Bridge Attacks

  What You Won’t Hear About the London Bridge Attacks The Usman Khan situation is more complicated than either Boris Johnson or Jeremy Corbyn acknowledge. Don't expect real debate during an election.There’s an important debate to be had after Friday’s terrorist attack on London Bridge: At what point is it safe to release a prisoner convicted of terrorism back into the public? There’s no chance of that debate taking place now in the final throes of a bitterly contested U.K. general election campaign. Instead there’s an unseemly blame game.

"The 125m ‘Blood Stoney Bridge’ will sit between the Samuel Beckett and Tom Clarke Bridges and be open to cyclists and pedestrians only.

"The bridge will include a 2-way cycle lane in the middle & footpaths on either side. Construction is scheduled to start in mid-2021 & take around 18 months.

"This bridge will be a good addition and make cycling in this part of the city much safer and more attractive."
