A terrorist attack has taken place in London, England near the Houses of Parliament and Westminster bridge. At least 4 people are dead, and 20 have been injured.
According to the latest reports approximately a dozen victims were struck by a small SUV four wheel drive vehicle on Westminster Bridge near the Houses of Parliament. The victims were intentionally “mowed down”. The vehicle then crashed through barricades at the entrance to Parliament and a knife-wielding suspect exited the vehicle and stabbed a police officer nearby.
The suspect described as a mid-aged Muslim or Asian male was shot on the grounds of Parliament by responding police. The terror suspect is pictured below:
Commons Leader David Lidington told MPs: “What I am able to say to the House is there has been a serious incident within the estate.
“It seems that a police officer has been stabbed, that the alleged assailant was shot by armed police.
“An air ambulance is currently attending the scene to remove the casualties.
“There are also reports of further violent incidents in the vicinity of the Palace of Westminster but I hope colleagues on all sides will appreciate that it’d be wrong of me to go into further details until we have confirmation from the police and from the House security authorities about what is going on.”
Prime Minister Theresa May was seen being ushered into a silver Jaguar in the grounds of the palace as what sounded like gunfire rang out at around 2.45pm.
A Downing Street source confirmed she was “OK”.
