London – The London police Tuesday morning arrested a man moments before with a car in the barriers around the parliament building had rammed. The Metropolitan Police reports that multiple pedestrians were injured.
The police report is not how many people were injured. The injuries of the victims are not life-threatening.
Dozens of officers surrounded the car with drawn guns and arrested the man. On images on social media show that a man with the handcuffs is removed. It is not yet clear whether it is an attack or an accident at a sensitive place’. An eyewitness told the BBC that it seemed the car deliberately at a group of cyclists rammed.
“I ran to the other side of the road,” said another witness. “All of a sudden, I heard a lot of noise and screams. I turned around and saw a silver car on the sidewalk.”
