n Wednesday, 4 people were killed and many were injured after a vehicle drove into a crowd on London’s Westminster Bridge near the UK Parliament building. One man was later shot by police after he stabbed an officer inside the Parliament compound.

Earlier in the day, UK Prime Minister Theresa May said that a British-born man inspired by Islamist ideology, who had been previously investigated by MI-5 is responsible for the attack.

“Our working assumption is that the attacker was inspired by Islamist ideology,” May said.

She added that the Westminster attack perpetrator “was a peripheral figure.”

London Metropolitan police said they were treating the events as terrorist incidents. The attack is currently being investigated.
