by The Participator – 2 Dec 2019

Our weekly roundup of news and opinion articles that we thought were important, mostly UK news but foreign news stories of interest to us as well. Please remember this is not intended to be a comprehensive news round up.


JIHAD NEWS - UK

Two people lost their lives in a terror attack that once again took place on London Bridge. The victims have been named, both young people with everything to live for. From the Sun:

From the Express:

Soon it emerged that the terrorist had been previously convicted of a terrorism related offence and imprisoned, and then released from prison early (less than 7 years into a 16 year sentence apparently). From the Telegraph (there is footage in this article showing how the terrorist was restrained by brave members of the public and then shot by the police):

He had also apparently been released with an electronic tag.

Further disturbing details later emerged. From the Mirror:

Quote:

Usman Khan claimed he no longer held extreme views and was a "model prisoner" before he was released after serving less than half his sentence, but authorities believe he was plotting an attack all along

More details, from the Daily Mail:

Also from the Daily Mail:

Sadiq Khan's response apparently was to blame the Tory government's policies. From the Express:
