BINTANGNEWS.com – At least four people were killed and 40 others were injured outside the UK Parliament in London after an assailant plowed a car into pedestrians and stabbed a police officer, an incident that has been declared a terrorist incident.Rowley, Britain's most senior counterterror police officer, added that three police officers were among those injured, two of whom were in serious condition.
Driving a large SUV, the assailant slammed into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge near Parliament, killing two people and injuring dozens, before crashing into a fence.
It appeared to be the most serious such assault in London since the deadly subway bombings in 2005.
The Metropolitan Police said law enforcement personnel were called to the scene at around 2:40 pm, local time.
The House of Commons session was suspended and members of parliament who were in the chamber were told to remain there.
May also said that “the full details of exactly what happened are still emerging,” but she confirmed that the attack had been carried out by a lone male assailant.
