     The world knows who was responsible for the deadly attack near the British Parliament and nearby Westminster Bridge – 52-year-old Khalid Masood.
     In a statement, Scotland Yark says he was born in southeasern England and most recently lived in the West Midlands in central England.
     Masood, who had a number of aliases, was not the subject of any current investigation and that ”there was no prior intelligence about his intent to mount a terrorist attack.”
     He had been previoulsy arrested for assualt, possession of offensive weapons and public order offences.
     Among those he killed on Westminster Bridge when he plowed an SUV into pedestrians – a man from Utah who was there with his wife on the last day of their special European trip celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary.
     Masood then stabbed a police officer as he tried to get into Parliament but was fatally shot by police.
     Meanwhile, three women and five men were arrested in London and Birmingham on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts following Wednesday’s attack.
     Home Secretary Amber Rudd told those gathered for a candlight vigil in Trafalgar Square that terrorists ”will not win.”
