LONDON - The man behind the London terror attack was born in Britain and had been investigated for violent extremism "some years ago" by the MI5 intelligence service, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Thursday.

"The man was British born and... some years ago he was once investigated by MI5 in relation to concerns about violent extremism," she told parliament, adding: "He was not part of the current intelligence picture."
