    I am curious about your description, since nowhere in the article does it describe the incident as a terror attack

    The only hint is at the very end with an insert saying what parliament has done to protect against terror attacks

    If this were happening in the US, the headline would scream, "Police Shoot Unarmed Man..."

    The police is treating it as a terror attack. People have been mowed down in the street and police officers attacked. Is this a response to President Trump's state visit?

    I am yet to see this described as a terror attack, but news is developing here. It was an attack on innocent people nonetheless.

    "A police officer has been stabbed in the Houses of Parliament in central London, in what police are treating as a terrorist incident."

    Maybe it's related to the ban on electronics?

    Taken DIRECTLY from the article:

    "Scotland Yard said the attack, which comes a year to the day after the terrorist atrocities in Brussels, are being treated 'as a terrorist incident until we know otherwise'.

    That's the word anglophone media use, but francophone media put the word in quotes.

    I stand corrected, but 8 minutes ago a find on page revealed no results for "terror" before the insert at the end o_O

    Doesn't matter but I saw it in the article before I even posted it.

    Well, some other media in English calls it "incident" or say that "the police is treating as".

    Looks like it is possible that the attackers were two.

    Is this serious or sarcasm? My bet is another practitioner of the religion of peace.

    If it did happen in the states, even if he were multiple amputee he wouldn't have been unarmed. He would have looked menacing as if to attack at any moment.

    That could still be a white guy. All colors can practice any religion of peace fanatically.

    A woman has died by the injuries and at least another victim has "catastrophic injuries"
