On 22 March 2017, at approximately 2:40 p.m., an attacker drove a car over Westminster Bridge, killing at least 2 pedestrians and injuring numerous others. The attacker drove a car into the railing outside of the Houses of Parliament.

The attacker was armed with a knife and killed unarmed officer P.C. Keith Palmer before being shot dead by armed forces.

London, along with the rest of the world, were sent into panic when news of the attack broke. Seven people were left in critical condition while twenty-nine others were taken and treated by a hospital.

Three of the injured were police officers who were pedestrians on the Westminster bridge at the time of the attack, two of whom were left in serious condition. Other victims were Britons as well as tourists and students from other nations, including France, Romania, South Korea, Greece, Germany, Poland, the Irish Republic, China, Italy, and the United States.

The attacker was a British born man and is thought to have acted alone. His name is yet to be released.
