+-

A vehicle rampage on London's Westminster Bridge followed by a stabbing on the grounds outside the United Kingdom's Parliament on Wednesday, March 22, 2017, left five people dead, including a police officer and the attacker, police said. The death toll rose to five on Thursday with the police announcement that a 75-year-old man who was injured in the attack on the bridge died of his wounds.

Dozens of people were injured in the attack, which police said was carried out by Khalid Masood, a 52-year-old Briton. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility.
