Police say London attack was deliberate

LONDON (AP) — Britain’s government will be holding a session of its emergency committee following what it described as a suspected terrorist incident near the Houses of Parliament.

The session of the COBRA committee was called after a motorist slammed into pedestrians and cyclists before hitting a barrier near the House of Lords on Tuesday. Two people were hurt, but authorities said none of the injuries is life-threatening.

Prime Minister Theresa May has offered her praise for the emergency services for their “immediate and courageous response,” following the incident.
