'It looked intentional': Driver arrested on suspicion of terror offences

A man crashed a vehicle into security barriers outside of the UK's Houses of Parliament, an incident that has been labeled a terrorist attack by British police.

A "number of pedestrians" were injured when a vehicle crashed into barriers outside Britain's Houses of Parliament on Tuesday, with armed police swooping in to arrest the driver, Scotland Yard said.

Images posted online showed a man wearing a black puffer jacket being led away in handcuffs from the vehicle as armed police swarmed the scene.

Another Birmingham resident, Khalid Massod, drove through pedestrians in the same area in 2017, killing five and injuring more than 50.

The suspect has not been formally identified, and Basu said he believes the man is not known to the security services.

Emergency services treated three people on the scene but there were no life threatening injuries.

The police are treating the crash, which happened around 2:40 a.m., EST, or 7:40 a.m. local time, as an act of terror. He was alone and no weapons were found in the vehicle. "There was a loud bang from the collision and a bit of smoke", Ewelina Ochab said.

She said: "I was walking on the other side [of the road]". A police officer can be seen jumping over another barrier to get out of the way.

Ahmed Abdi, who is originally from Somalia, said Khater was regularly at the Bunna internet cafe, and was a "very quiet" man who "never spoke" and drove a small white, old vehicle.
