The London Bridge attacker, who murdered at least two people on Friday, has been identified as an Islamic terrorist previously convicted of planning an Al Qaeda terror plot in London. The 28-yer-old terrorist of Pakistani origin, Usman Khan, was out on parole after serving less than seven years of his 16-year prison sentence for planning to blow up the  London Stock Exchange and U.S. embassy, among other targets. The convicted terrorist was wearing an electronic tag at the time of the attack, the UK news reports confirm.

The new Islamophobia definition proposed by an all-party British parliamentary group could undermine police efforts in countering Islamic terrorism, the UK police warned. The legal adoption of the term could hamper law enforcement officers from going after terrorists and those spreading jihadist propaganda, UK's National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC), a body representing country's police chiefs, said.

Europe's open-doors immigration policy will lead to a European "Islamic caliphate," Italian deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini has warned voters ahead of the upcoming European Union election. "For our children, to leave behind an Islamic caliphate with sharia law in our cities is not something I want to do and I’m going to do everything in my power to avert this sad ending for Europe," he said during a visit to Hungary this week.

Islamist terrorists could carry out another series of coordinated attacks, this time dressed up as military personnel, warned Sri Lankan security forces following the Easter Sunday's suicide bombings on churches and luxury hotels that killed at least 250 people and injured hundreds. The Sri Lankan government has enforced a new emergency law banning women from wearing a burqa and other types of face covering due to security reasons -- much to the dismay of the local Muslim leaders. "All sorts of face covers that hinders the identification of individuals" have been forbidden, the new presidential order states.
