How an attack unfolded
The area surrounding Westminster was full of people when the attack began at around 14:40 local time (10:40 ET) Wednesday. Witnesses said the suicide bomber drove his car along the sidewalk on the Westminster Bridge, colliding with pedestrians as he went. The car fell on a large number of people, including three police officers.
“The attack continued, trying to enter the car parliament and then crashed near the parliament and at least one man – a – carrying a knife,” said Rowley. He was one of those who died of a woman.
Parliament put on lock for several hours and forced deputies to stay in the main debate room of the House of Commons.
In the early hours of Thursday morning, much of Westminster – Britain’s political heartland – is still cordoned off by police, with access to Downing Street and police headquarters in Scotland Yard blocked.
