Police in London shoot 'knife-wielding attacker' outside Parliament
A police officer was stabbed and an alleged assailant was reportedly shot after gunfire broke out at the UK Parliament in London on Wednesday.
At least four people were lying on the ground, some bleeding heavily, on Westminster Bridge near Britain's parliament, Reuters reported. It was not clear exactly what happened or how many people were injured.
The leader of the House of Commons said a man had been shot by police. David Liddington also said there were "reports of further violent incidents in the vicinity."...
Update:- It transpires that Khalid Masood, the Westminster terrorist, was indeed a Muslim convert, previously known as Adrien Elms, born and brought up in Kent, who despite a criminal record (and he had been radicalised in prison), had previously been an English teacher.
So maybe we do need to pray for grieving British Christisn parents after all.
What is so shocking is that these jihadists think they are going to Paradise. They have been deceived by their religion!
Also it seems that impressionable young, and older men, who go to prison are being actively recruited while there, presumably by radical imams and fellow prisoners. This needs urgently looking into, and severely dealt with by the authorities, but there is no political will to do it because of the "political correctness" that abounds these days.
In the UK there seems to be â€˜onlyâ€™ the liberal bias media/BBC politically correct view of â€˜Islamâ€™.
Interestingly there is a far different view from those who actually live with Islam on a daily basis in London and surrounding towns. There is man called Tommy Robinson, an unconverted man, whose early life was football hooliganism and then leader of the EDL (English Defence League). Robinson would represent the feelings of a big slice of lower working class people in inner cities who experience Islam. Having renounced his connection with EDL he has read and studied Islam and warns about the dangers.
He speaks a lot more sense than the British media. Pray for him that the Lord might convert him and use him to bring the Gospel truth to working class people including muslims. Watch this video and see what he says about those who live in the leafy suburbs and have no idea. What about our churches in the same leafy suburbs? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G54TKESUoLU&feature=youtu.be&app=desktop
It is interesting that some working class folk labelled â€˜far rightâ€™ have more idea than many Christians of what is going on, hence watch the video and see if you agree. Worth watching.
Good information/tracts for muslims http://www.word-of-hope.net/
I have just heard on the radio that the police have named the suspect, and it was not the Jamaican man I referred to in yesterday's comment by me, but the photo of the suspect on the ambulance trolley surrounded by armed officers did look like him.
It was a South Adoan man called Masood Khalid, I think.
Apart from the police officer who was stabbed to death, and the terrorist himself, 3 other people died, the latter from being run over by the terrorist on Westminster Bridge, before he crashed his car in the railings and ran into the Parliament Courtyard armed with 2 knives, where the police officer was attacked.

Though not totally confirmed, it appears that the prime suspect is a Jamaican man who was sadly brought up in a Christian family, but went off the rails at 17, converted to Islam, and was soon involved in terrorist activity some years back,
He was a regular at the Finsbury Park Mosque in London, led by one Abu Hamza, who after a crying long extradition battle fought all the way by his smart Islamic lawyers, was at last sent over to face justice in the USA and is now "enjoying" a lifetime of US Federal imprisonmemt, on very close confinement.
His disciple, however, who was killed today by the British police in the Westminster Palace Courtyard, of the Houses of Parliament, had gone to face a far more Eternal Court.
We must pray for his victims,and their families, and if it is confirmed as the Jamaican convert I mentioned. a grieving Christian mother and father.
Apparently this wasn't a lone wolf attack, Mike.
