Police release mugshot of Westminster terror attacker Khalid Masood


Masood was then shot by armed officers.

Investigators do not now see a direct ISIS hand in this week's attack in London, a British counterterrorism official told CNN on Saturday. Daesh terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the attack. Earlier PM Modi took to micro-blogging site Twitter and said that India stands with United Kingdom in the fight against terrorism.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said it may never be possible to fully determine the motives of attacker Khalid Masood, who was shot dead Wednesday after running over pedestrians with an SUV on London's Westminster Bridge and fatally stabbing a policeman guarding Parliament.

At birth, he was registered in Kent as Adrian Elms, but later took his stepfather's name becoming Adrian Ajao in childhood. Known by a number of other aliases, he had not been convicted previously for any terrorism offences, they added.

Trump touts expected Ford announcement on plant investments
Although it may seem as though American auto companies are bringing production back to America, this is not entirely true. The new data center Ford announced today will be in a new building on the same campus as the Flat Rock Plant.

According to a police timeline of the incident, Masood started his assault at 2:40:08 p.m.

Seven people are in a critical condition, and 29 have been treated in hospital.

A factor in this early assessment, the official said, is that ISIS has not posted a video showing a pledge of allegiance from the attacker.

British police are assuming that Khalid Masood, a 52-year-old British Muslim convert and the suspect in Wednesday's terror attack at the British Parliament of which four people were killed, acted alone.

Only one, a 58-year-old man who was arrested Thursday in Birmingham, remains in custody.

On the eve of the attack that Prime Minister Theresa May cast as an attack on democracy, Masood spent his last night in a budget hotel in Brighton on the south coast where he ate a takeaway kebab, the Sun newspaper said. A 32-year-old woman arrested in Manchester, and a 39-year-old woman arrested in east London, were released on bail.

Police are investigating media reports that Masood checked his encrypted messaging service WhatsApp - or even sent a message - just before the attack, which hinted at others being involved. His last conviction came 14 years ago in December 2003 for possession of a knife.He may have taught in Saudi Arabia for four years from 2005 but there was no confirmation of this.

Ten people have been arrested and six addresses raided across London, Birmingham and elsewhere.
