British police said on Monday they had found no evidence that Khalid Masood, who killed four people in an attack on Britain's parliament last week, had any association with Islamic State or Al Qaeda, but he was clearly interested in jihad. They were injured as the attacker plowed through crowds walking across Westminster Bridge. So far, 12 people have been arrested in relation to the attack, CNN reported.

Police believe the culprit acted alone.

Investigators piecing together Masood's background describe an intelligent but angry man who became estranged from school friends in Kent shortly after leaving secondary school in the 1980s, and had a history of violent explosions often involving knives.

More details were revealed about the killer's family. Home Secretary Amber Rudd said Sunday that such services must not "provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other".

He was dismissed as a peripheral figure.

"There has been much speculation about who Masood was in contact with immediately prior to the attack", Basu said.

The fanatic taught English at the time and one colleague told The Times he once asked about the group Al-Muhajiroun, a banned extremist group run by Choudary, who was jailed a year ago for supporting IS.

And while her brother-in-law preferred to remain backstage or in the crowd, he agreed to join the group onstage for their final performance, she said, donning a memorable vintage powder-blue tuxedo for the occasion.

Teegan still lives with her mother Jane Harvey, 48, a successful businesswoman, at their home in Tunbridge Wells.

The family did not say when they expect Melissa Cochran to be released from the hospital.

The latest was a 30-year old man who was detained Sunday in Birmingham "on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts" under the TACT or Terrorism Act 2000, Metropolitan Police said. They faced the same charge, but all but three have been released.

One man remains in custody in the case.

Officers have carried out 15 searches at various addresses in east London, south London, Brighton, Surrey, Carmarthenshire, Birmingham and Manchester.

The family of the USA tourist killed in the Westminster terror attack have spoken of their "humbling and hard experience".

The others who died were Aysha Frade, who worked at a college near Westminster Bridge and 75-year-old retired window cleaner Leslie Rhodes. Meanwhile, a picture of a Muslim woman, donning a Hijab and walking by an injured person on the Westminster bridge after the attack, went viral on social media as many "slammed her for lack of concern".
