British anti-terror police release detained Gambian woman with ties to London attacker

Rohey Hydara, a Gambian woman detained by British authorities investigating a terror attack on its parliament has been released on bail.

Hydara, 39, was married to the mastermind of Wednesday’s attack on the Westminister, Khalid Masood, who was killed by the police during the attack.

At least seven people, who were among those arrested during raids in Birmingham and London have been released, said the police.

Four people were killed in the attack and at least 40 people injured. ISIS has taken credit for attack as the police probe if Mr. Masood acted totally alone inspired by terrorist propaganda, or if others have encouraged, supported or directed him.

Masood drove a hired Hyundai into a crowd of pedestrians crossing Westminister Bridge, before crashing the vehicle into the gates outside Parliament House, where he stabbed to death police officer Keith Palmer.

Hydara and Masood met in Luton, a borough and unitary authority area of Bedfordshire, England and lived in two other addresses afterward.

Hydara was arrested in east London, where the police searched her home in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford.
