In the face of a 68-nation summit to strengthen an anti-ISIS coalition, ISIS claims responsibility for the terrorist attack carried out yesterday in London. Reports this morning confirm 3 dead and 40 injured.
The New York Times reported that the attacker has been identified as English-born, 52-year-old, Khalid Masood, identified as “a peripheral figure” with links to violent extremism and a 20-year police record. He was killed by police following the attacks.
