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.

London Bridge attacker Usman Khan was jailed for terrorism offences in 2012, the Met said. He was part of the Stock Exchange plot which was disrupted He is also understood to have been a supporter of al-Muhijaroun, the extremist group which scores of terrorists were involved with, according to the

Police also confirmed the suspect was already known to authorities, and was convicted in 2012 for terrorism offences before being released from prison on licence in December 2018.

A statement said: 'We are now in a position to confirm the identity of the suspect as 28-year-old Usman Khan, who had been residing in the Staffordshire area. As a result, officers are, tonight, carrying out searches at an address in Staffordshire.

'This individual was known to authorities, having been convicted in 2012 for terrorism offences. 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.

'Tragically, two people – a man and a woman – were killed during the attack. Three others – a man and two women – were also injured and remain in hospital.

'The circumstances, as we currently understand them, are that the attacker attended an event earlier on Friday afternoon at Fishmonger's Hall called 'Learning Together'. We believe that the attack began inside before he left the building and proceeded onto London Bridge, where he was detained and subsequently confronted and shot by armed officers.

'Extensive cordons are likely to remain in place for some time and I would ask the public to continue to avoid the area.'
