LONDON -- The head of counter terrorism at London's Metropolitan Police, says four people have died in the terror incident in London, including an attacker and a police officer.

Mark Rowley says some 20 people have been wounded and Parliament was locked down. A search is underway to make certain no other attackers are in the area -- though police believe there was only one attacker.

The dead policeman was one of the armed officers who guard Parliament, he said. The other victims were on Westminster Bridge.

"We are satisfied at this stage that it looks like there was only one attacker," Rowley said. But it would be foolish to be overconfident early on."

A senior police commander says the attack at London's Parliament has been declared a terrorist incident and "a full counter terrorism investigation is underway."

The White House says U.S. President Donald Trump has been briefed on a gun and knife incident at Britain's Parliament in London.

Trump himself said during a brief appearance Wednesday before reporters at the White House that he was just getting the news. He called it "big news."

Trump's spokesman, Sean Spicer, says the U.S. will continue to monitor the situation and update the president. | © 2014 | All Rights Reserved
