London attacker acted alone, says police

Masood was then shot by armed officers.

At the age of 52, Masood does not fit the profile of militant attackers, who are typically younger than 30, counter-terrorism experts told Reuters.

The embassy said Saudi security services didn't track Masood and he didn't have a criminal record there. "Deeply saddened by the terror attack in London".

Investigators are still assessing whether the attacker plotted alone or acted as part of a broader conspiracy.

Authorities identified Masood, a 52-year-old Briton, as the man who mowed down pedestrians and stabbed a policeman to death outside Parliament in London, saying he had a long criminal record and once was investigated for extremism - but was not now on a terrorism watch list.

Yates was sacked in January as acting attorney general after she refused to defend the Trump administration's first travel ban. He fired his national security adviser, Michael Flynn, last month for misrepresenting meetings with the Russian ambassador.

Five people have died - a police officer, the attacker, a woman named as Aysha Frade, 43, United States tourist Kurt Cochran and 75-year-old Leslie Rhodes succumbed to his injuries in hospital a day after the attack.

A 21-year-old woman arrested at an address in Birmingham was released with no further action.

A total of 11 people were held on suspicion of preparation of terrorist attacks in the wake of Wednesday's rampage at Westminster.

On the eve of the attack that Prime Minister Theresa May cast as an attack on democracy, Masood spent his last night in a budget hotel in Brighton on the south coast where he ate a takeaway kebab, the Sun newspaper said.

"While there is no evidence of further threats, you will understand our determination to find out if he either acted totally alone, inspired by terrorist propaganda, or if others have encouraged, supported or directed him".

SpaceX to launch first-ever used rocket to space
Most flight displays launch without any valuable payloads so that in the event of failure, the company doesn't lose more money. The rocket originally flew in April 2016 before landing successfully on an unmanned drone ship bobbing in the Atlantic Ocean.

A 32-year-old woman who was arrested in Manchester, remains on bail, police said. "We miss him so much, but we are also incredibly proud of Keith".

"We still believe that Masood acted alone on the day and there is no information or intelligence to suggest there are further attacks planned", Basu, who is the Senior National Coordinator for UK Counter Terrorism Policing, said.

Authorities are investigating how the perpetrator, who used multiple aliases, became radicalized. His birth name was Adrian Russell Ajao, while he also called himself Adrian Elms, according to police.

"Our investigation continues at pace".

He appealed for anyone who knew Masood well or was aware of his recent movements to get in touch, as detectives probe his motivation, his preparation for the attack and his associates. The last conviction was in 2003.

The most common recipe for slime involves just three ingredients: Elmer's Glue, the household cleaner Borax, and water. The concerned mother is not the first to speak out about the dangers of making homemade slime.

Masood was jailed for two years over the 2000 attack in the auto park of a pub in Northiam, near Rye in East Sussex, according to a news report at the time.
