CAPITALS —AlGhad— According to British and US media, the attack which targeted the UK Parliament building Wednesday afternoon in Westminster, London central, has so far tolled 4 deaths, and 40 injuries, including a police officer who stabbed by the assailants who was shot dead, and identified as Khaled Masoud, 52, a British citizen.


Masoud’s first conviction was in November 1983 for criminal damage and his last conviction was in December 2003 for possession of a knife, and was never convicted of any terrorism offences.


The attack was claimed by the terrorist group, ISIS, according to their media agency, Amaq, earlier today, Thursday, exactly one year after the Brussels attack in Belgium.


Daesh, aka ISIS, maintain that perpetrators have acted in response to the organisation’s call to target civilians of NATO states.
