At around 2.40 pm on the 22 March, an attacker drove his car into people who were on Westminster Bridge and then stabbed a police officer outside the Houses of Parliament. At least 5 people have been killed, including officer Keith Palmer, and about 40 were wounded. (BBC News)
The alleged attacker has been shot and killed by police. A full investigation has been launched.
While details of the victims are still emerging, the British Muslim community stands with the community during these difficult times and extends their support in raising funds to help with the immediate, short-term needs of the families of Keith Palmer, the other victims and the families of the victims. While no amount of money will bring back lives lost or take away from the pain the victims and their families are going through, we hope to lessen their burden in some way.
“London is the greatest city in the world, and we stand together in the face of those who seek to harm us and our way of life. We always have and we always will. Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism. There will be additional armed and unarmed police officers on our streets from tonight in order to keep Londoners, and all those visiting our city, safe”
– Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London
