As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by DailyMail:

The Sudanese-born immigrant accused of bringing terror to Westminster was being investigated over ‘irregularities’ in his British citizenship application before the attack, MailOnline understands.

Salih Khater, 29, was also thrown off his university accountancy course in May after failing his first year and lost his father and brother in the months before he used his Ford Fiesta to plough into crowds during yesterday’s rush hour.

MailOnline understands that Khater had recently been told by the Home Office he was being probed over possible irregularities in his successful application to become a British citizen.

Khater grew up in the rural town of Wad Madani, around 150 miles south-east of Khartoum, Sudan, where his mother and father farmed millet, and came to the UK around five years ago, possibly as an asylum seeker.

The article goes on to state the following:

Police are today searching his tenth floor council flat just ten minutes from the former home of Khalid Masood, whose murderous rampage 17 months ago appears to have inspired Khater’s own carborne attack yesterday. Searches of his old flat and a Nottingham house linked to his car have been completed.

Yesterday Khater spent six hours stalking the streets of London before hurtling into 15 cyclists and driving at police officers manning a Westminster security barrier during the morning rush hour.

He drove 115 miles to London late on Monday night and toured the Tottenham Court Road area between 1.25am and 5.55am before heading to Westminster and Whitehall at 6am and circled until he struck at just after 7.30am yesterday.

Armed police dragged him from the smoking wreckage of his car and arrested him on suspicion of terror offences. Detectives today also arrested him on suspicion of attempted murder.

He is refusing to co-operate but MailOnline can reveal Khater moved to Britain around five years ago and enjoys listening to Rihanna, Celine Dion and Eminem as well as watching Premier League games and football in his native Sudan.
