The London terror attacker has now been identified as Khalid Masood, a 52-year old father of three who works as an English teacher and is obsessed with body building. He has a previous criminal record assaults, possession of offensive weapons and an attack by a knife. In a shocking new revelation, he has been seduced by ISIS.
Masood was shot dead shortly after the attack, where he used a vehicle to ram pedestrians on the Westminster Bridge before storming Parliament and stabbing a police officer to death. London police had no prior evidence that Masood was going to create a terror attack. He went by a number of aliases, including the name Khalid Choudri.
From The Sun:
Officials have now said the lone wolf maniac was inspired by “Islamic terrorism” and had been investigated for violent extremism by MI5 before he mowed down crowds on Westminster Bridge and stabbed cop Keith Palmer to death outside Parliament. A Sky source, who met him, described him as a “big bloke” who looked like a bodybuilder “you wouldn’t want to mess with”. He added that Masood was a “very religious, well spoken man. You couldn’t go to his home in Birmingham on Friday because he would be at prayer”.
The source also said he was a “religious convert”.
A stunned neighbour claimed she recognised the dead terrorist after he apparently lived next door to her in Winson Green, Birmingham. Iwona Romek, who did not know the attacker’s name, described the killer as a dad who was a keen gardener. The 45-year-old said the murderer “seemed to be quite nice” but suddenly moved out with his “young child and Asian wife”.
