22th March was a typical day in London. Many tourists were walking next to The Palace of Westminster and on Westminster Bridge. No one was expecting that something like that would happen. At 14:40, a grey car driving 122 km/h bomped into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge. One of the victims-to-be in order to save life, jumped into The River Thames. Briton Khalid Masood who caused this attack, crashed the car and run around the corner into Parliament Square and through the open Carriage Gates where he fatally stabbed an unarmed police officer. After that Masood was killed. The attacker took the lives of 5 people and injured 50! It only lasted 82 seconds….
On 25 March, Neil Basu – Deputy Assistant Commissioner – said that detectives believed Masood had acted alone and that there was no information or intelligence to suggest further attacks were planned.
He also added: “There is a possibility we will never understand why he did this.”
But British also admitted something really important: ” We are not afraid. London stands united”
