Sus­pect armed with knives caught near at­tack site

The Washington Times Daily - - WORLD -

LON­DON | Armed po­lice car­ry­ing out a coun­tert­er­ror­ism op­er­a­tion Thurs­day swooped in on a man they said was car­ry­ing knives in a bag near Bri­tain’s Par­lia­ment and ar­rested him on sus­pi­cion of plan­ning ter­ror­ist acts.

A Euro­pean se­cu­rity of­fi­cial fa­mil­iar with the in­di­vid­ual said the sus­pect was known to Bri­tish se­cu­rity agen­cies and was thought to have been in­spired by the Is­lamic State group.

No one was in­jured in the in­ci­dent, which un­folded just yards from where an at­tacker killed five peo­ple with a ve­hi­cle and a knife last month.
