UK Parliament terrorist attack

Six people were killed, including the attacker – radicalized British citizen Khalid Masood – in a terrorism incident in central London. Masood plowed a rented car into a crowd of pedestrians on London’s busy Westminster Bridge. He then crashed into the railings at the perimeter of Westminster Palace, got out of the car, and proceeded to stab police officer Keith Palmer to death before being shot dead, prompting the evacuation of Prime Minister Theresa May, with MPs under lockdown.
