London: The Westminster Bridge that is usually filled with traffic and tourists looked a ghastly site with numerous injured people, many of them in serious condition following a ‘terrorist’ attack. Latest reports suggest that four people have already succumbed to their injuries.

A BBC report says that the man who tried to ram his car into as many people, before attacking others by knife, was shot by the police in the chest. It is still unclear if there was only one attacker, or multiple attackers involved in the worst such case in London over the last few years.

In the meantime Aljazeera quoted the Metropolitan Police Commissioner Mark Rowley as telling reporters that “…the attack started when a car was driven over Westminster Bridge, hitting and injuring a number of civilian,s and three police officers on their way back from a commendation ceremony”.

While the officials have refused to divulge further detail about the person behind the attack Police Commissioner said, “full counter-terrorism investigation” was underway.

In the meantime Andrew Woodcock, Press Association political editor, who witnessed the entire incident was quoted by the BBC as saying, “I heard shouts and screams from outside and looked out, and there was a group of maybe 40 or 50 people running round the corner from Bridge Street into Parliament Square…They appeared to be running away from something…As the group arrived at the Carriage Gates, where policemen are posted at the security entrance, a man suddenly ran out of the crowd and into the yard.

“He seemed to be holding up a long kitchen knife…I heard what sounded like shots – I think about three of them – and then the next thing I knew there were two people lying on the ground and others running to help them” Woodcock was quoted by the BBC as saying.
