    Man Who Killed 5, Injured 40 in Westminster Identified

    “Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism.” So said Mayor Sadiq Khan after a lone attacker plowed his vehicle into pedestrians on London’s Westminster Bridge yesterday, then stabbed and killed a policeman inside the gates of Parliament before being shot himself. The man has been identified as Khalid Masood, 52, who was British born, known to MI5 and with a range of criminal convictions, although none terrorist related. Police have arrested eight people in connection with the attack, and Prime Minister Theresa May said the U.K.’s threat level will stay at “severe.”
