U.K. PAR­LIA­MENT

New Straits Times - - World -

An am­bu­lance he­li­copter landed on Par­lia­ment Square, just out­side the build­ing.

The BBC said po­lice be­lieved there was a sus­pect ve­hi­cle out­side Par­lia­ment but po­lice did not con­firm that re­port.

Amid con­fus­ing scenes, it ap­peared the in­ci­dent may have un­folded in sev­eral lo­ca­tions, in­clud­ing on the busy West­min­ster Bridge where tourists take pic­tures of Big Ben and other at­trac­tions.

Re­porters inside Par­lia­ment said a large num­ber of armed po­lice, some car­ry­ing shields, were pour­ing into the build­ing.

United States Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump said he had been briefed on events in Lon­don.

The in­ci­dent took place on the first an­niver­sary of at­tacks on Brus­sels in Bel­gium. Reuters
