Three deaths have resulted from this London attack on Wednesday morning, one of which includes a police officer. A total of twenty people were injured before the assailant was shot down after stabbing an officer, leaving the total dead at 4.
British police have investigated into this attacker and determined that the cause behind this attack was terrorist in nature. In addition to the stabbing, a car mowed several people down in the street on the Westminster Bridge.
This attack occurred outside of the British Houses of Parliament , which was quickly sealed off, while staff was ordered to remain inside. Armed police arrived shortly and cut off the area from the public. In so far, there are not too many details on the incident, but what is known is that this was a ‘serious incident,‘ according to David Lidington, parliament leader.
From Gateway Pundit:
It is not clear exactly what happened or how many people were injured, however a Reuters reporter inside the building said medical staff were treating two people inside the gates of the parliamentary estate.
While at least four people were lying on the ground, some bleeding heavily and apparently unconscious near the parliament.
One of the photographs showed a body lying under the wheels of a London bus.
Meanwhile, three French schoolchildren were hurt, French officials said. The three were students aged around 15 or 16 of the Concarneau Lycee in Brittany, western France, according to a report in Le Telegramme regional newspaper. Lidington said an air ambulance was at the scene to take away casualties. TV pictures showed traffic halted on the nearby Westminster Bridge and emergency vehicles swarming around. The busy bridge was completely shut off to traffic.
