Parliament was immediately locked-down as twin gunshots were heard in the chamber. In an earlier incident, a car ploughed into a crowd on Westminster Bridge leaving 12 injured. Scotland Yard are calling the incident a “terror attack.

The attack follows reports of “increased jihadi chatter” following the UK’s adoption of an electronics ban aboard flights from certain Muslim-majority countries, writes the AP. The New York Times reports that the U.S. has also adopted the ban, which affects people’s abilities to carry laptops as carry-on. Airports in 10 Muslim-majority countries are affected by the laptop ban, including Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Morocco, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, Tunisia, and Turkey.

 The new law requires people are these countries to put their laptops in checked baggage.
In an ISIS magazine article from November 2016, ISIS suggested to Muslims how to carry out a successful attack as a lone wolf operative. In the article, ISIS said that a lone wolf should use a vehicle to plow into a crowd and to carry a secondary weapon.

Soon after, an ISIS-inspired student carried out vehicular attack on Ohio State University. The terrorist, Somali-born Abdul Razak Ali Artan, also carried a machete. ISIS later claimed the attacked and named Artan as one of their “soldiers.”

A similar attack claimed by ISIS was carried out on July 14, 2016 at a Bastille Day celebration in Nice, France by Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel. Bouhlel is responsible for murdering up to 84 people by ramming into them with a truck and shooting at them.

More recently, another vehicular attack was carried out on a Christmas market that killed 12 and injured 48 at Breitscheidplatz in Berlin-Charlottenburg, Germany. The Islamic State also claimed this attack.
Witness Jayne Wilkinson said: “We were taking photos of Big Ben and we saw all the people running towards us, and then there was an Muslim guy in about his 40s carrying a knife about seven or eight inches long.

“And then there were three shots fired, and then we crossed the road and looked over. The man was on the floor with blood.

“He had a lightweight jacket on, dark trousers and a shirt.

“He was running through those gates, towards Parliament, and the police were chasing him.”

“Police are asking people to avoid the following areas: Parliament Square; Whitehall; Westminster Bridge; Lambeth Bridge; Victoria Street up to the junction with Broadway and the Victoria Embankment up to Embankment tube.”

“We’ve been told not to go to the terrace. Lots of shouting heard.

“We think there might be another Islamic attack.”

Islamic terrorist has been a serious problem in the past years due to massive migration of Muslim into Europe, these events are becoming more and more common throughout Europe. European countries with larger numbers of Muslims have been hardest hit by increased Islamic terror.
