Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command reported that three, not two, officers were injured during an Islamic terrorist incident where the Muslim terrorist deliberately drove his car at a police van outside Buckingham Palace yesterday.
MET POLICE (h/t Maria J) Just after 8.30pm, the Muslim terrorist deliberately drove his car at a police van and stopped in front of it in a restricted area on Constitution Hill near Buckingham Palace. The officers, who were unarmed police constables and from Westminster borough, got out of the van and approached the car, a blue Toyota Prius.
As they challenged the driver, who was the only occupant in the car, he reached for what we now know to be a FOUR-FOOT SWORD which was in the front passenger foot well. The Muslim man, who repeatedly shouted “Allahu Akbar,” was incapacitated with CS spray. During a struggle the three officers sustained minor injuries.
