A man killed 5 people, including a police officer, outside the UK Parliament yesterday in what British police are looking at as an act of "Islamist-related terrorism."

40 people were hurt when the attacker plowed his car through a crowd of people on a bridge over the River Thames, got out of his vehicle and fatally stabbed police officer Keith Palmer, a 15-year-veteran who was unarmed, on the grounds of Parliament.

An armed officer shot the assailant dead.

Britain's most senior counter-terror police officer Mark Rowley, said that authorities believe they know the attacker's identity but are not releasing it, and are operating on the assumption the incident was "Islamist-related terrorism."

Prime Minister Theresa May described the attack as "sick and depraved."
