London police have revealed the original birth-name of attacker Khalid Masood as Adrian Russell Ajao. Scotland Yard revealed more details early on Friday about the extensive investigation that has led to more arrests following raids across the UK.
Speaking at Scotland Yard, Assistant Commissioner for Specialist Operations Mark Rowley said “Two more significant arrests have been made.” The arrests bring the total to 10, with nine people in custody following the release of one woman on bail.
Rowley said 16 searches have been concluded with five continuing. The searches took place in the West Midlands and North West. Some 2,700 items have been seized including computer data.
“Our investigation focuses on understanding his motivation, his operation and his associates,” Rowley said.
“Whilst there is still no evidence of further threats, you’ll understand our determination is to find out if either he acted totally alone, inspired perhaps by terrorist propaganda, or if others have encouraged, supported or directed him.”
