“‘What is this you sent me?’ Wife’s horror as Westminster terrorist sent her ‘jihad document’ just minutes before he killed four people and injured dozens more,” by Richard Spillett and Arthur Martin, Daily Mail, September 20, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
The Westminster terrorist sent his wife a picture of himself in Mecca and verses from Koran before he unleashed his murderous attack.
The inquest into the deaths of Khalid Masood’s five victims yesterday heard of the jihadi’s final actions before he killed five pedestrians and a police officer and was shot dead.
A jury were told he parked up in St Thomas’s Hospital car park, near Westminster Bridge, and sent the documents to a random group of contacts, including his wife Rohey Hydara.

His wife replied: ‘I need to speak to you urgently. I called you earlier today’, she then added: ‘What is this that you sent me? x’

Today, the inquest heard that Masood had attended the same mosque as terrorists convicted of plotting a series of fertiliser bomb attacks after converting to Islam in jail, an inquest was told.
Masood converted to Islam after he was jailed for a flick knife attack in 2000, and could have been radicalised as early as 2004.
He moved to Crawley, in West Sussex, after he was released from Lewes prison in December 2003, having become a ‘zealous convert’ after crediting his religion for a ‘miracle’ acquittal from an attempted murder charge.
He attended the Langley Green Mosque in the town, where terrorist Jawad Akbar had set up a ‘Sunday school’, the Old Bailey heard….
Masood had come on to the radar of the security services at around the time of the plot, while one of his associates was arrested after his mobile phone shop was raided in a terror probe, the inquest heard….
