Reuters news agency reports today that Khalid Masood, who drove his car over the crowded Westminster Bridge in London, England, last week killing three and injuring scores more, was interested in jihad. Masood also stabbed a police officer to death, but was shot and killed by police shortly after. The report states police found no link between the attacker and the Islamic State or Al Qaeda.
According to the report, Neil Basu, senior national coordinator for UK counter-terrorism policing said,”I know when, where and how Masood committed his atrocities, but now I need to know why”. It was not understood from the report how the attacker was interested in jihad.
