UK PM says 74 convicted terrorists released early

In an interview with the BBC’s Andrew Marr, Boris Johnson was asked how many other convicted terrorists have been released early from prison in similar circumstances to London Bridge attacker Usman Khan.

Boris Johnson replied there are 74 other individuals in the same situation as the London Bridge attacker – a convicted terrorist who was released early.

What are the authorities doing about them?

“I don’t want to go into the operational details. I am sure that people can imagine that what we are doing with the other 74 individuals is to ensure that they are being properly invigilated to ensure that there is no threat and we took that action because we were concerned.”
