After London Bridge attack, UK to review terrorists’ jail release

Agency News

The UK has decided to immediately review the licence conditions of terrorists freed from prison. The move has been launched by the Ministry of Justice following Friday's London Bridge attack.

As many as 70 convicted terrorists released from prison could be the focus of the government review. Khan, 28, who was shot by police on Friday after carrying out the attack, was jailed over a plot to bomb the London Stock Exchange in 2012.

Two people were killed and three were injured by Usman Khan, 28, a convicted terrorist who served half of his time. Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for the London Bridge terrorist attack, saying that it was carried out by one of their fighters, the group's Amaq news agency stated.

PM Boris Johnson claimed scrapping early release would have stopped him. But Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will blame budget cuts for "missed chances to intervene" in a speech on Sunday.
