The british police have described the incident earlier today at the UK parliament as ‘Terrorist Attack’.

Two people died in the incident, according to Sky News, but the total number of casualties was unclear.

“Officers – including firearms officers – remain on the scene and we are treating this as a terrorist incident until we know otherwise,” London’s Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

An assailant is reported to have stabbed a policeman and was shot by police just outside Britain’s parliament building in London on Wednesday.

Amid confusing scenes, it appeared the incident may have unfolded in several locations, including on the nearby Westminster bridge where eyewitnesses said a car had crashed into pedestrians.

The incident took place on the first anniversary of attacks by Islamist militants that killed 32 people in Brussels.

According to Reuters reporters inside the parliament building, loud bangs were heard and shortly afterwards saw two people lying on the ground in a courtyard just outside, within the perimeter of the parliamentary estate.

A Reuters photographer said he saw at least a dozen people injured on Westminster Bridge, next to parliament.

His photographs showed people lying on the ground, some of them bleeding heavily and one apparently under a bus.


“I just saw a car go out of control, and just go into pedestrians on the bridge,” a woman who gave her name as Bernadette told Sky News. She was on a tour bus on the bridge at the time.

It is unclear at this time how many people are injured or dead in total but stick around as more news unfold.
