British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Sunday 74 convicts have been let out early from prison exactly like the London Bridge attacker.
Johnson’s revelation came only a couple of days after a convicted terrorist, Usman Khan, who was released early from prison because of an automated early release system, stabbed and killed two people, before he was shot down by armed police.
Khan injured three others during the incident on Friday afternoon, which was declared as a “terrorist attack” by British authorities.
It is “legitimate” to question how the terrorist could be out that early, Johnson said during an interview with BBC’s Andrew Marr Show.
The government has come under fire since Friday’s incident.
Khan was attending a rehabilitation event for ex-convicts in a building near the London Bridge when he started stabbing people.
He wore a fake suicide jacket with hoax explosives strapped around his body.
