Another “terror attack” has shocked London which injured 15 cyclist outside the British Parliament.
According to London Police, a Sudanese immigrant known to police is thought to be behind another terror attack on Westminster after ploughing his car into 15 cyclists outside Parliament house.
Identified as Salih Khater, 29, veered off the road careering into pedestrians and cyclists at Parliament Square, after spending the night cruising around London.
There were screams as the Ford Fiesta mounted the pavement and mowed people down at up to 50mph at 7.37am.
In a chilling echo of Khalid Masood’s murderous rampage on Westminster 17 months ago, the driver, from Birmingham, sped towards the Palace of Westminster – narrowly missing two police officers guarding the access road who jumped out of his path. He then smashed into a security barrier outside Parliament.
Despite hitting at least 15 cyclists and pedestrians during rush hour, no one was killed with only one female cyclist seriously injured.
Within minutes the driver, dressed in a white shirt, jeans and a black puffa jacket, was dragged from the driving seat of the crumpled vehicle by armed officers.
The terror suspect – thought to be a lone wolf – remained strangely calm and utterly silent, offering no resistance as he was handcuffed, as reported via media news outlet.
Meanwhile, London police found no weapons or explosives.
Last night it emerged Khater, who was said to be of Sudanese origin, drove from his rundown flat in Hall Green, Birmingham, to London on Monday evening arriving just after midnight.
He spent all night driving around central London, cruising around tourist hotspots such as Tottenham Court Road between 1.25am and 5.55am.
US President Donald Trump today branded the London terror suspect an ‘animal’.
Trump has previously said Sadiq Khan was failing to tackle extremism and crime in the city – blaming high levels of immigration.
The business tycoon-turned politician spoke out again shortly after 7.30am in Washington and said on Twitter: ‘Another terrorist attack in London…These animals are crazy and must be dealt with through toughness and strength!’
Previously he said there were areas of London where police were scared to go because of extremism.
