London Bridge attack sparks review of licence conditions for freed terrorists

  London Bridge attack sparks review of licence conditions for freed terrorists The review began in the immediate aftermath of Usman Khan’s knife rampage on Friday.Usman Khan was released from prison less than seven years into a 16-year prison sentence in December 2018 and was wearing an electronic monitoring tag when he killed two people and injured three others in his attack on Friday.

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.

'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.'
