In a statement late Saturday, the Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism Command revealed that 82 seconds passed from the moment on March 22 when Khalid Masood rammed his auto into pedestrians and then exited the vehicle to attack police with a knife, until the moment he was shot dead by officers.

Little else is known about the 52-year-old, who plowed an SUV through pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before stabbing a police officer to death outside the Parliament in an attack later claimed by ISIS.

According to The Daily Mail, Masood had been born as Adrian Elms.

Scotland Yard also said that 2,700 items including "massive amounts of computer data" were seized during searches at 16 properties, and that another five searches were ongoing.

A total of 31 people of 12 nationalities have been treated in hospital, two people remain in critical condition while two officers have very significant injuries.

"All I can tell you is what the police have said so far, which is that he was someone known to them, but that he was on the periphery of the intelligence agencies".

The family of police officer Keith Palmer stabbed to death by Masood said it was moved by the support from various quarters: "We have been overwhelmed by the love and support for our family, and most especially, the outpouring of love and respect for our Keith".

He was a retired window cleaner who is believed to have been visiting a nearby hospital before he was struck by Masood's auto while crossing Westminster Bridge.

There is no evidence that anyone else accompanied Masood during the rampage in which he murdered four people and injured 50 others. I am grateful for the public support so far, but I am asking for more help. The Metropolitan Police said the incident was a terrorist attack.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for Wednesday's attack, saying Masood was "an Islamic State soldier" who "carried out the operation in response to calls to target citizens of the coalition".
