Chaos and fear ensue in London after a driver of a Hyundai 4×4 intentionally mowed down pedestrians in Westminster. London’s ambulance service reported that the driver killed 4 people (1 cop) and injured at least 20 others. The suspect was immediately shot by police ending in his death. The British Parliament is under lockdown as politicians take shelter.
“At this moment, the very clear advice from the police and the director of security in the house is that we should remain under suspension, and that the chamber should remain in lockdown.”
stated David Lidington, leader of the house of commons. Prime Minister Theresa May, was rushed into a vehicle and was brought back safely to her office. London police are on high alert asking citizens to try and not to call the ambulances in Westminster due to the current situation.
The attack in Westminster takes places exactly one year after Brussels terrorist suicide bombings that killed 22 people in 2016. London has joined the cities, such as Paris, Brussels, Berlin, and Orlando as targets of mass violence in the past year. Although the UK may have some of the strictest gun laws, terrorists will find a way to do as much damage and kill as many people as possible in the shortest time.
