    The London Metropolitan police said Thursday they have made a total of eight arrests in relation to the attack in Westminster that took place the day before.

    On Wednesday, 4 people were killed and many were injured after a vehicle drove into a crowd on London’s Westminster Bridge near the UK Parliament building. One man was later shot by police after he stabbed an officer inside the Parliament compound.

    London Metropolitan police said they were treating the events as terrorist incidents. The attack is currently being investigated.

    "We have now made a total of eight arrests as part of the ongoing Counter Terrorism operation," the police said on Twitter.

    A Sputnik correspondent reported from the scene.
