London police arrested a man who came to the Economic Department and the Prime Minister Teresa Mae’s office on suspicion of trying to stab. According to the BBC, eyewitnesses said the suspect had two knives in his bag – including one large knife. There were no casualties in the incident.
Mei’s spokesman said that the prime minister was not in her residence at the time. The suspect was caught on Whitehall Street in the Westminster quarter, home to several government offices. About an hour after his arrest, the police issued an official statement that he had been arrested on suspicion of an attack, and that the background was terrorism. According to Western security sources, the suspect, 27, was known to intelligence services in the kingdom.
About a month ago, three people were killed and about 20 wounded in a combined attack near London’s Parliament on Westminster Bridge. The terrorist ran over passersby at the bridge before he stabbed a policeman , and then was shot and died from his wounds while trying to enter the building. During the attack , a curfew was imposed in Parliament and many police forces entered it. A few days later, ISIS took responsibility for the attack.
