  • Watch bystanders tackle London terror attacker

Khan was convicted of terror offences in February 2012 and released from prison on licence in December 2018, halfway through his 16-year prison sentence.

In the wake of the attack, authorities are urgently reviewing the release of more than 70 other former terrorist prisoners.

The incident has provoked questions about legislation, and triggered accusations that the government was seeking to make political capital from the tragedy before a general election.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and main opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn paused Monday to honour the two people killed in the London Bridge attack, then went back to trading blame for the security failings that allowed a man who had been jailed for terrorist crimes to go on a violent rampage in the heart of London. This is London Mayor Sadiq Khan speaking at a memorial service today.

Police said, however, there was no information to suggest a link to Friday's attack.

Tour guides Thomas Gray and Stevie Hurst stopped their vehicle after witnessing Khan and joined two other men in pinning down the suspect at London Bridge.

The terrorist Usman Khan, fatally stabbed Jack Merritt, 25, and Saskia Jones, 23, with kitchen knives before he was subdued with the help of British police and a Polish bystander wielding a narwhal tusk.

However, the Monday papers in the United Kingdom - including the Daily Mail and The Express - reported on a "terror blitz", following orders from Prime Minister Boris Johnson to "crack down on extremists" in the wake of the attack.

He penned an article setting out the new stance in The Mail on Sunday newspaper, under the headline: "Give me a majority and I'll keep you safe from terror".

'A amusing, kind, positive influence' Saskia Jones, 23, has been identified by London's Metropolitan Police as one of the two people killed in a November 29 stabbing attack at London Bridge.

"Jack lived his principles; he believed in redemption and rehabilitation, not revenge, and he always took the side of the underdog", the statement said.

"We know Jack would not want this bad, isolated incident to be used as a pretext by the government for introducing even more draconian sentences on prisoners, or for detaining people in prison for longer than necessary", they said in a statement.

The early assessment is that Khan was acting alone and wore a hoax suicide bomb vest because he wanted to be shot.

Meanwhile, hospital officials said one of the injured had returned home, while the two others remained hospitalised in a stable condition.

The girlfriend of London Bridge terror victim Jack Merritt broke down in tears as she attended a vigil in his memory in Cambridge.

As part of that work, a 34-year-old man was arrested last Saturday in Stoke-on-Trent, central England, on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts.

But the Islamic State group has released a statement claiming responsibility for the attack.

In 2012, Khan, then aged 20, pleaded guilty to a plan to create a training camp in Kashmir for young British Islamists, who were supposedly meant to be dispatched back to the United Kingdom equipped to carry out terrorist attacks.

All nine jihadists were members of an al-Qaeda-inspired cell which plotted to blow up the London Stock Exchange and kill Boris Johnson.
