REVEALED: ‘Sudanese immigrant terror attacker’ who drove around London for hours before smashing his car into cyclists outside Parliament leaving 15 hurt
- Salih Khater, from Birmingham, veered off road into pedestrians and cyclists at Parliament Square at 7.37am
- Emerged 29 year old drove from flat in Hall Green, Birmingham, to London on Monday before driving around
- Cruised tourist hotspots around Tottenham Court Road before 1.25am and 5.55am before going to Whitehall
- Crash came 17 months after Khalid Masood killed 5 on Westminster Bridge before murdering PC Keith Palmer
A Sudanese immigrant known to police is thought to be behind another terror attack on Westminster after ploughing his car into 15 cyclists outside Parliament.
Salih Khater, 29, veered off the road careering into pedestrians and cyclists at Parliament Square, after spending the night cruising around London.
There were screams as the Ford Fiesta mounted the pavement and mowed people down at up to 50mph at 7.37am.
In a chilling echo of Khalid Masood’s murderous rampage on Westminster 17 months ago, the driver, from Birmingham, sped towards the Palace of Westminster – narrowly missing two police officers guarding the access road who jumped out of his path. He then smashed into a security barrier outside Parliament.
Despite hitting at least 15 cyclists and pedestrians during rush hour, no one was killed with only one female cyclist seriously injured.
Within minutes the driver, dressed in a white shirt, jeans, and a black puffa jacket, was dragged from the driving seat of the crumpled vehicle by armed officers.
The terror suspect – thought to be a lone wolf – remained strangely calm and utterly silent, offering no resistance as he was handcuffed.
