As Stand for Israel reported earlier, terror has struck Europe once again today – one year to the day after bombings ravaged the airport in Brussels, Belgium – when attacks were carried out in London. As more details come out, The Times of Israel reports that at least three people are dead and 20 more have been wounded – many with “catastrophic” injuries – in the car-ramming and stabbing attack that spanned Westminster Bridge to the House of Parliament:
At least three people were killed, along with the attacker, and 20 people were injured in a stabbing and car-ramming terror attack Wednesday outside the British Parliament in London and on the nearby Westminster Bridge.
Parliament was on lockdown after an assailant stabbed an officer, then was shot dead by police, officials said. London Police also said officers were called to an incident on Westminster Bridge nearby.
Police said they were treating the attack “as a terrorist incident until we know otherwise.” They said in a statement that the incident was ongoing and urged people to stay away from the area.
Medics confirmed a woman had been killed and said some of the wounded suffered “catastrophic” injuries. The London Ambulance Service said it had treated at least 10 patients on Westminster Bridge, and police said there were officers among the injured. At parliament, a body was seen lying in the yard. It wasn’t clear if it was the attacker.
