Prime Minister Theresa May : "London attacker was British born and had been investigated by MI5 over extremism fears".


Prime Minister Theresa May : "London attacker was British born and had been investigated by MI5 over extremism fears".(Standard).

The attacker who killed three people at Westminster was born in Britain and had previously been investigated by MI5 for violent extremism, Prime Minister Theresa May has revealed.
Mrs May briefed MPs in the Commons on Thursday morning and gave limited details about the man but said security services had not had any warning an attack was imminent.
Whilst the man had been investigated by MI5 several years ago, she described him as “a peripheral figure”.
Speaking to a packed House, Mrs May said: “His identity is known to the police and MI5 and when operational considerations allow, he will be publicly identified.
“The man was British-born and some years ago was investigated by MI5 over concerns into violent extremism.
“He was a peripheral figure. The case is historic.
“He was not part of the current intelligence picture. There was no prior intelligence of his intent or the plot.” Read the full story here.
