UK: London Bridge knife attacker known to cops, wore electronic tag, had links to jihad terror groups

Once again the abject failure of the British response to the jihad terror threat is illustrated, but nothing will change. The usual condemnations will be issued, the usual candlelight vigils will be held, politicians will issue the usual vows to crush terrorism, and everything will go on as before until the next jihad attack.

“LIVE: London Bridge knife attacker known to police and had links to terror groups,” Sky News, November 29, 2019:

What we know so far about the terror attack

Sky News’ foreign editor Deborah Haynes says it is believed the attacker was linked to Islamist terrorism. 

She added: “It’s not yet known whether that’s potentially Islamic State, potentially Al Qaeda, potentially another group.”

The attacker was a convicted terrorist who had recently been released from prison and was wearing an electronic tag, according to The Times

The report added that he was a guest at a Cambridge University conference on prisoner rehabilitation at Fishmongers’ Hall – where the attack began – and later threatened to blow up the venue.

It went on to quote unnamed Whitehall sources as saying the attacker had been released from prison around a year ago after serving time for a “terrorism-related offence”, and had agreed to wear an electronic tag.

The attacker was known to police and had links to Islamist terror groups, according to a security source quoted by the Press Association
