Aftermath of UK Parliament attack, British Police arrest 7 people
British police arrested seven people in overnight raids as the search for more information about the attack on one of the city’s busiest areas continues.
Yesterday, an armed assailant drove into pedestrians on the Westminster Bridge then stabbed a police officer while trying to storm the city’s Parliament building, killing three people and injuring dozens more.
Before the arrests were made, authorities searched six addresses across the country with possible links to the suspect, police said. They believe the attacker, who was fatally shot by officers, was inspired by Islamist extremism but acted alone.
