London Terrorist Named

The name of the terrorist who carried out yesterday's attack in London has been released, along with the names of the three people he killed.  The perpetrator was Khalid Masood, who was born in the county of Kent, and who had a previous criminal record.  The victims were Kurt Cochran, an American from Utah who was celebrating his 25th wedding anniversary, Aysha Frade, a teacher in London who had relatives in Spain, and police officer Keith Palmer, who was stabbed before his fellow officers shot the attacker.  Cochran's wife was injured and hospitalized.

UPDATE:  The links now indicate that a fourth victim has died, but have not stated his name.  He was a 75-year-old man.
