'I ain't no terrorist': London Bridge attacker in 2008

SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH): SAID TO BE LONDON BRIDGE ATTACKER USMAN KAHN IN 2008, SAYING: "I ain't no terrorist." That's Usman Khan in his own words from a 2008 BBC interview - more than a decade before Friday's attack on London Bridge which killed two people, and four years before his 2012 conviction for his role in an al-Qaeda inspired plot to blow up the London Stock Exchange.

He was released early from prison a year ago.

SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH): SAID TO BE LONDON BRIDGE ATTACKER USMAN KAHN IN 2008, SAYING: "I been born and bred in England, in Stoke-on-Trent in Cobridge, and the older community knows me.

And if you ask them, they will know that these labels that they're putting on us like 'terrorist' - they all know - I ain't, I ain't no terrorist." The 28-year-old was killed by police Friday wearing a fake suicide vest after bystanders wrestled him to the ground.

Word of his early prison release has set off a firestorm in the U.K. over parole, especially when it comes to those convicted of serious crimes.
