MOSCOW, March 22. /TASS/. London police say they are treating Westminster incident as terrorism. A woman has died after the Westminster attack in central London, Press Association reported on Wednesday.
Some people are hurt with "catastrophic injuries," Press Association said quoting a junior doctor at St Thomas' Hospital.
London’s Metropolitan Police said on Twitter they "are treating this as a terrorist incident until we know otherwise."
A car drove into a crowd on London’s Westminster Bridge, injuring at least five people, BBC reported on Wednesday.
Shooting was reported near the Houses of Parliament earlier and several people were injured.
Reuters said a policeman was stabbed at the Houses of Parliament. A TASS correspondent reported from the site that the parliament's sessions are suspended.
Russia will be staying in contact with the UK in the wake of Wednesday’s incident in London, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday, aired by the Russian Rossiya’24 TV channel.
"We offer our condolences and sympathy to those who were harmed, to the relatives of those who were killed in this aggressive attack," she said. "Our hearts are with the British people. We share their pain and once again reiterate the need for presenting a common front against this ill."
"We will not be just watching but will be staying in constant contact with the British officials through the Russian embassy in London so as to clarify all the circumstances and fates of Russians who might have been hurt in the incidents."
"Russia’s embassy to the UK has been in contact with officials of that state - the police - for clarifying all the circumstances and getting information about Russian nationals," Zakharova said. "We will appreciate constant contacts with the UK through the Russian embassy."
