Queen honors British minister who tried to save policeman

Eight others arrested in connection with the investigation had been set free earlier, including a 39-year-old woman who had initially been freed on bail but now faces no further police action, police said Saturday.

Only two men - a 27-year-old and 58-year-old arrested in Birmingham - remain in custody after a hunt for accomplices saw 11 people held after raids across the country.

On Friday, Rowley thanked journalists who agreed to police requests not to publish Masood's name while investigators were still taking stock of the potential threat and arranging arrests and searches.

London Police finally named Khalid Masood as the perpetrator of the deadly terror attack.

Masood drove his auto into crowds of people on Westminster Bridge on Wednesday afternoon, killing three and wounding some 50, before stabbing a police officer to death at the Houses of Parliament.

Masood was then shot by armed officers.

The other three who died were policeman Keith Palmer, stabbed as he protected Parliament, American tourist Kurt Cochran and college administrator Aysha Frade, a British citizen with Spanish roots.

Detectives have searched 21 properties in London, Brighton, Wales, Manchester and the central English city of Birmingham in one of Britain's biggest counterterrorism operations in years. However, the attacker had previous convictions for violence but not terrorism offenses, including possession of offensive weapons like a knife and public order offences.

"We must all accept that there is a possibility we will never understand why he did this". Police believe Masood acted alone but Rowley said police were trying to determine whether others "encouraged, supported or directed him".

Masood drove his rented SUV into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge on Wednesday before crashing his vehicle into railings and then running into the grounds of Parliament.

"You couldn't go to his home in Birmingham on Friday because he would be at prayer", said the source, who Sky said met Masood in a professional capacity. He was shot dead by police.

Masood, who was born in Dartford, continued towards Bridge Street along both the footpath and road until 14:40:38 before crashing into the perimeter fence of the Palace of Westminster. It's also not clear when he took the name Masood, suggesting a conversion to Islam.

That was the third incident in a week in Europe after London and a weekend attack at Paris's Orly airport, and came a day after the first anniversary of the Brussels suicide bombings that killed 32 people and were also claimed by IS.

In addition, two police officers injured in the attack remain in the hospital with serious injuries.

The Islamic State group claimed the assailant behind the deadliest attack on British soil in 12 years was one of its "soldiers" acting on a call to target countries in the US-led coalition fighting the jihadists.

People lit candles for those killed and wounded and one woman painted the word "freedom" on her forehead.

I then chose to call my family to say that I was fine and was making my way home from work, assisting a lady along the way by helping her get to Waterloo station. Wallace helped coordinate the government's response to the attack.
