Eye-witnesses said that they saw security forces arresting a man who was wearing black. The local police department said that the suspect was arrested as part of a stop and search operation.

About a month ago, four people were murdered and about 20 more were injured when a terrorist plowed an SUV into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge. When he arrived at the entrance to the British parliament building, he exited his SUV and stabbed a police officer to death.
