UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has revealed that 74 convicted terrorists are roaming the streets of the UK after being granted early release from prison, in cases similar to that of London Bridge attacker Usman Khan.
Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has said that convicted terrorists should “not necessarily” serve their full prison sentences automatically, after Prime Minister Boris Johnson vowed to toughen up Britain’s sentencing laws.
Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) has reportedly claimed responsibility for the stabbing attack on London Bridge. The claim comes even as the terrorist group’s propaganda is being wiped off messaging apps.
The violent extremist who killed two people in a terror attack in London on Friday had previously been described by a judge as a “serious jihadi” who should not be eligible for early release from prison.
