Two innocent people were killed and three others were left with injuries yesterday after a previously convicted radical Islamic terrorist went on a stabbing rampage in London.
The ordeal was finally brought to an end when armed police shot dead the knifeman wearing a fake suicide vest. Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick has confirmed that two individuals died from the injuries they sustained during the attack, the Daily Mail reports.
“It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to inform you that, as well as the suspect who was shot dead by police, two of those injured in this attack in the London Bridge area have tragically lost their lives,” Dick said.
Video footage showing the terrorist being wrestled to the ground by a group of ordinary citizens has circulated throughout social media and the news. One man can be seen chasing the attacker with a fire extinguisher while others attempted to subdue him.
A few seconds later police commanded the brave citizens wrestling with the knifeman to move way before they themselves moved in on the suspect. The video footage shows officers yelling “stop moving” multiple times before eventually shooting the man twice at close range.
It has now surfaced that the knifeman, Usman Khan, was imprisoned in 2012 for his part in a plot to bomb the London Stock Exchange and pubs in Stoke, as well as planning to establish a jihadi training camp in Pakistan.
Khan “was known to authorities, having been convicted in 2012 for terrorism offenses [and] released from prison in December 2018 on license,” Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu confirmed.
