Suspect Identified in London Bridge Attack

British police have identified the man suspected of killing two people in a terrorist attack near London Bridge over the weekend.


28-year-old Usman Khan has been arrested for the attack. The rampage began just before 2 P.M.  at the Fishmonger’s Hall, a historic building on the north side of the London Bridge.

The suspect was attending an event in the building organized by the University of Cambridge’s Institute of Criminology. Authorities say they aren’t seeking any other suspects in relation to the attack.


Police officers shot and killed Khan after he stabbed the two victims to death.  Police reports say he had a fake bomb strapped to him when he was shot. Khan was convicted in 2012 for terrorism offenses and had been living in the Staffordshire area after he was released from prison last year with an ankle monitor.
