Muslim youths, police link hands to mark London terror attack

The wife and mother of Westminister attacker Khalid Masood have condemned his actions and offered their condolences to the families of the dead.

In a statement released to the UK's Press Association via the Metropolitan Police on Tuesday, Hydara said: "I am saddened and shocked by what Khalid has done".

"After the terrorist attack, I want to express my thanks to the police, House of Commons staff, emergency services and my own staff for their actions".

In a statement to the Associated Press, Hydara poured scorn on her husband's act of terror and requested privacy for her family, especially the children, at this hard time.

The funeral of the police officer who was killed in a terror attack at Westminster will take place next month.

An independent review will look into how the perimeter fence surrounding the Parliamentary estate is secured after Khalid Masood, armed with a knife, ran into New Palace Yard and murdered PC Keith Palmer last Wednesday.

A large crowd, which included police, hospital staff and relatives of victims, stretched across the bridge where Khalid Masood drove a auto into pedestrians March 22.

ISIS claimed responsibility one day after the attack and called Masood "a soldier of the Islamic State".

While there was no clear evidence Masood was part of a terrorist organization, or shared his plan of attack with others, the Met deputy assistant commissioner and senior national coordinator for United Kingdom counter-terrorism policing Neil Basu said Monday there was "clearly an interest in jihad".

An inquest into his four victims, Palmer, American tourist Kurt Cochran, 54, retired window cleaner Leslie Rhodes, 75, and Aysha Frade, 44, heard how each died.

Opening the inquest, Dr Wilcox told relatives of some of the victims who attended the hearing: "It is very much a first step in this inquiry in what will be a long, hard and complex process".

Mr Cochran died at the scene on Westminster Bridge from multiple injuries after being hit by the vehicle, while Ms Frade suffered head and chest injuries, also dying on the bridge.

Basu said there was no sign Masood was radicalized during one of his stints in prison, the last of which was in 2003.

Masood's inquest will open and adjourn at the same location on Thursday. Masood was shot dead by police at the scene.

Earlier, the family of a Romanian woman who fell into the Thames during the attack said they had been overwhelmed by "love, support and respect" for her.

Twelve people are still being treated at hospitals across London, while 18 have been discharged.
