Terror Attack at UK Parliament: Police Officer Stabbed and Pedestrians Mowed Down
March 22, 2017
FOUR people are dead - including police officer and terrorist - and 20 more injured after a terror attacker brought carnage to central London today by mowing down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge and attacking police with a knife in the grounds of the Houses of Parliament.
Via Daily Mail:
- Four-wheel drive was driven over Westminster Bridge knocking down pedestrians this afternoon.
- Victims were said to have been left scattered in the road, with one woman knocked into the River Thames.
- Emergency services treated at least 20 injured people on the bridge, with one woman dead under a bus.
- 'Asian' knifeman got into the grounds of Parliament where he stabbed and killed a police officer.
- The 'middle-aged' attacker was then shot by armed officers and died after being taken to hospital.
- Parliament was suspended and the Prime Minister was rushed from the scene in her official car.
Around 20 people were hit when a 4x4 drove along the pavement on the crowded bridge, knocking down and seriously injuring pedestrians before crashing into a fence below Big Ben.
The killer, described by witnesses as 'middle-aged and Asian', then managed to break into the grounds of Parliament, where he fatally stabbed a police officer with two knives.
The policeman died at the scene. The attacker - who was shot at least twice by armed officers guarding the building - died after he was taken to hospital. It is currently believed he was the only 'lone wolf' attacker.
Three people have died, including the policeman and around 20 pedestrians and three other police officers were injured.
Prime Minister Theresa May was bundled into her car by a plain-clothes police officer and driven quickly from the scene as the attack unfolded.
She chaired a meeting of the Government's emergency Cobra Committee tonight.
Scotland Yard said the attack, which comes a year to the day after the atrocities in Brussels, is being treated 'as a terrorist incident'.
