Westminster attack

On 22 March 2017 a terrorist attack in London began on Westminster Bridge, and continued into Parliament Square and the grounds of the Palace of Westminster. The attacker, identified as 52-year-old Briton Khalid Masood (born Adrian Russell Elms), drove a car into pedestrians on the pavement along the south side of Westminster Bridge and Bridge Street, resulting in more than 50 people being injured, three of them fatally. After the car crashed into the perimeter fence of the Palace grounds, he abandoned it and ran into New Palace Yard where he fatally stabbed an unarmed police officer. Masood was then shot by a close protection Police officer,[1] and died of his injuries at the scene.
