Muslim women stand with victims of Westminster attack

A woman assists an injured person after an incident on Westminster Bridge in London Britain

Four days after Khalid Masood killed four people in a horrific attack, the event, organised by the group behind the Women's March on London, was intended as a show of defiance.

The others who died after the attacker drove his vehicle into pedestrians on the bridge were Aysha Frade, who is believed to have been a 43-year-old married mother-of-two, and retired window cleaner Leslie Rhodes. A fourth victim died later in the week, when his life support was withdrawn.

Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack and called Masood "a soldier of the Islamic State".

Some commentators criticized what they perceived to be the woman's indifference to an injured victim in the image.

Earlier, The Sun newspaper reported that the London attack suspect was a former English teacher working at the institution controlling Saudi Arabia's civil aviation.

Masood is also known to have used different names throughout his life.

Palmer was much more than a dedicated officer, his family said in a statement. "I would like to thank Jamie Lorriman, the photographer who took the picture, for speaking to the media in my defence".

"I would rather get a situation where we get all these people around the table agreeing to do it", she told Marr.

This is an undated photo released by the Metropolitan Police of Khalid Masood.




Police said the two men remain in custody after a series of raids across the UK.

Khalid Masood lived just a few hundred yards from one of the men, and is thought to have come into contact with them while they were attending a local gym.

A WhatsApp spokeswoman said the company was "horrified at the attack" and was co-operating with the investigation.

Adrian, 52, originally from Kent but living in Birmingham, was not the subject of any prior ongoing investigation.

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

Authorities are also investigating how Masood, who used multiple aliases, became radicalized.

He had a fairly extensive and violent criminal history, which spanned more than two decades, though he had not previously been convicted of terrorism-related activities. His most recent conviction was in 2003 for possession of a knife.

This latest attack is considered as the most serious since July 2005 terrorist attacks by four Al Qaeda-linked terrorists, who caused four blasts in London's public transport system, killing four people and injuring about 700.

Masood's victims were PC Keith Palmer - who was stabbed outside Parliament - Aysha Frade, who was in her 40s and worked at a London sixth-form college, USA tourist Kurt Cochran, 54, and retired window cleaner Leslie Rhodes, 75, from south London.
