The mother of Westminster attacker, Khalid Masood, has spoken of her shock over her son's actions.
In a statement sent out by Dyfed-Powys Police on her behalf, Janet Ajao -who currently lives in Carmarthenshire - said she doesn't condone nor support the beliefs which led him to carry out the attack.
Khalid Masood, who was born Adrian Ajao, used a vehicle to mow down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge last Wednesday.
PC Keith Palmer also died during the attack.
I am so deeply shocked, saddened and numbed by the actions my son has taken that have killed and injured innocent people in Westminster.
Since discovering that it was my son that was responsible I have shed many tears for the people caught up in this horrendous incident.
I wish to make it absolutely clear, so there can be no doubt, I do not condone his actions nor support the beliefs he held that led to him committing this atrocity.
I wish to thank my friends, family and community from the bottom of my heart for the love and support given to us.
A police presence remains at the rural Carmarthenshire home of terrorist Khalid Masood's mother on Friday evening.
Labour MP Chris Bryant described PC Palmer as 'our shield and defender yesterday.'
Rhondda MP Chris Bryant says security measures at the Palace of Westminster should be reviewed following yesterday's terror attack.
