London Bridge killer Usman Khan was convicted terrorist out on licence

Report Focus News - Usman Khan

The knife-wielding London Bridge attacker has been revealed as a convicted terrorist jailed over a plot to bomb the London Stock Exchange.

Usman Khan, 28, killed a man and a woman and injured three people, including a man and two women, during his rampage on Friday afternoon.

In February 2012, he was handed an indeterminate jail sentence over a terror plot, with the sentencing judge saying he should not be released until he was no longer a threat to the public.

However, this sentence was quashed at the Court of Appeal in April 2013 and he was given a 16-year jail term.

Khan was released from prison in December 2018 on licence, having served seven years of his sentence.
