28-year-old Usman Khan, a convicted terrorist, who spent part of his teenage years in Pakistan, is suspected to be the man who stabbed two people to death in a terror attack on London Bridge. Khan also stabbed three other people before being restrained by bystanders and killed by police. Khan was released last year from a UK prison, and is said to have been inspired by Al Qaeda. At the time of his sentencing in 2012, the judge warned he was a “serious jihadist” who should not be released while he remained a threat to the public.
