Five Killed in London Terrorist Attack

Five Killed in London Terrorist Attack

Alwaght- Five people including a policeman have been killed and 40 injured following a terrorist attack in the heart of the British capital, London.

The dead, in what police called a "marauding terrorist attack," included the assailant and the policeman he stabbed. The other three victims were among those hit by the car as it sped across Westminster Bridge before crashing into railings just outside parliament.

The suspected attacker was pictured being treated by paramedics on a stretcher, as two knives used in the assault lay on the ground nearby.

Witnesses said the attacker was shot by police as he approached a second officer clutching his knife during the incident at about 2.45pm local time.

A woman was pulled alive, but with serious injuries, from the Thames, the Port of London Authority said. The circumstances of her fall into the river were unclear.

Three French school children aged 15 or 16 were among those injured in the attack, French officials said.

British Prime Minister Theresa May condemned the attack as "sick and depraved".

"The location of this attack was no accident," she said in a statement outside her 10 Downing Street office late in the evening.

The Muslim Council of Britain has condemned the terrorist attack which struck the heart of the government in London today.

Religious leaders have spoken out and have said it is too early to make comments on the attacker’s intentions, but have said “thoughts and prayers” to the victims.

The threat level for international terrorism in the Britain was already listed at severe with Wednesday being the anniversary of terrorist attack in the Brussels airport and subway that killed 32 people. There was no immediate claim of responsibility and it was not clear if there was more than one attacker. London Police Commander B.J. Harrington said a full counter-terrorism investigation was underway.

"We've declared this as a terrorist incident and the counter-terrorism command are carrying out a full-scale investigation into the events today," Mark Rowley, Britain's most senior counter-terrorism officer, told reporters.

London was also attacked by terrorists on July 7, 2005, when four Al-Qaida-inspired bombers blew themselves up on three subway trains and a bus in London, killing 52. Three of the terrorists were all British-born and the fourth one was a Jamaican immigrant.
