Westminster Terror Incident – More details emerge regarding the attacker

Various details have emerged regarding the attacker. Here are the key points:

  • According to the Prime Minister (see her statement), the attacker was known to MI5 prior to the attack. However, a Number 10 spokesperson declined to comment as to when he was last investigated, only saying it was “some years ago” in response to repeated questions about when, why and how the intelligence agencies have monitored him in the past.
  • It has also been revealed that the attacker was British-born.
  • According to the Guardian, the attacker rented the car used in the incident – a Hyundai Tucson, from an Enterprise branch on Spring Hill passage in Birmingham, just one mile from the Birmingham property raided earlier today, which is thought to be the home of the attacker.

Of course, the attacker remains unidentified as of now. I will post another update soon regarding the status of those injured.
