Warner Todd Huston

Another unhinged Islamist terrorist has tried to use an automobile as a weapon of mass murder by driving a car into a crowd of pedestrians outside of London’s Parliament building.

According to the UK Telegraph:

Scotland Yard said a man in his late 20s was arrested after the incident at around 7.30am. The suspect was taken to a south London police station, where he remains on suspicion of terrorism offences. He is not co-operating with officers.

The Met’s counter-terrorism command is leading the investigation. Officers are seeking to formally identify the suspect, but “don’t believe this person is known to either MI5 or counter terrorism police.

After he ran down several pedestrians, the killer jammed down the gas pedal and slammed into the barriers around the government building. Some witness say the terrorist was driving up to 50 miles per hour.

Witness Barry Williams said the car had accelerated towards the barrier after hitting the cyclists.

“I turned round to see a silver car heading towards the cyclists on the wrong side of the road, they were parked waiting for the lights to change,” he told the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme. “He hit the cyclists then swerved over towards where the safety barrier is…. and accelerated and hit it at quite a high speed.

“I wasn’t sure whether he meant to hit the cyclists, they might have just been in the way, but once he did, he accelerated towards the barrier.

The UK media broadcast a photo of the suspect being carted off and he appears to be a Muslim likely from Africa.
