Terror Attack In London At #Westminster [VIDEO]

Early this morning in London, pedestrians were run over on Westminster Bridge and an officer near the entrance to Parliament was stabbed in what London police are calling a “terrorist incident.”

The details of the attack are beginning to sound eerily like the Nice attack of last July, and I’m sure that it is no coincidence AT ALL that today is the 1 year anniversary since the Brussels attack. It means nothing. At all. Nothing to see here. Move along.

Or not.


Reports range between 8 to 12 pedestrians being run over on Westminster Bridge by an unknown assailant in a car, which jumped the curb deliberately to hit them.


The attacker then crashed the car into the railing fence.


Then the attacker, reportedly armed with a knife, stabbed a police officer on the Parliament grounds.


The immediate danger is apparently over, but a good chunk of London’s tourist and government areas are shut down.


Here is a map that details the sequence of events as we know them.


While we don’t have any information yet on who the assailant is, and no word on the attacker’s status other than he was shot, many other people are wounded.


Parliament went on lockdown, and Prime Minister Theresa May was secured.

Both the assailant and the officer he stabbed are listed as casualties, and the BBC is reporting that one woman has died, along with multiple others injured. Victory Girls will continue to monitor this story and update it as needed as new information emerges. Above all else, pray for the injured, and for their families.

UPDATE [11:35 am Pacific] Scotland Yard authorities confirm four people are dead, including a police officer and the assailant, and 20 others are injured.
