The Islamic State claims that Usman Khan, who killed two people on London Bridge, was one of its fighters. But long before its so-called caliphate, Khan was inspired by Anwar al-Awlaki and al-Qaeda.
The State Department designated two Islamic State members, Siddhartha Dhar and Abdelatif Gaini, as terrorists. Dhar “is believed to be the masked leader who appeared in a January 2016 ISIS” execution video.
British officials identified two of the three men suspected of carrying out the June 3 terror attacks in London. At least one of them was well-known to counterterrorism officials and even appeared in a documentary about extremism in the UK.
