Khalid Masood told his children he was ‘going to die fighting for God’ weeks before Westminster attack

The Westminster terrorist told his young children that he “was going to die fighting for God” during a video chat days before the attack, an inquest has heard.

Khalid Masood, who killed four pedestrians and one police officer in the assault on the Houses of Parliament on 22 March 2017, also told his mother, Janet Ajao, six days before the attack: “They will say I am a terrorist. I am not.”

Police were not made aware of either comment prior to the attack.
