London Attacker Was British-Born, Linked to Extremism: PM

The man who mowed down pedestrians on a London bridge and fatally stabbed a police officer on Parliament's grounds was born in Britain and was known to intelligence services, the prime minister said Thursday. Theresa May, who didn't disclose the man's name, said that he was once investigated for extremism links, but was considered a peripheral figure. The revelation came moments after Parliament held a minute of silence and reconvened less than 24 hours after Wednesday's brutal attack, which killed three victims and forced a lockdown of the British government's seat of power. May delivered a defiant message to the House of Commons, declaring simply: "We are not afraid."

A knife-wielding man went on a deadly rampage in the heart of Britain's seat of power Wednesday, plowing a car into pedestrians on London's Westminster Bridge before stabbing a police officer to death inside the gates of Parliament. Five people were killed, including the assailant, and 40 others were injured in what Prime Minister Theresa May condemned as a "sick and depraved terrorist attack." Lawmakers, lords, staff and visitors were locked down after the man was shot by police within the perimeter of Parliament, just yards (meters) from entrances to the building itself and in the shadow of the iconic Big Ben clock tower. He died, as did three pedestrians on the bridge, and the police officer.
