Earlier this week, five people were killed and about 40 injured in London after a car ploughed into pedestrians and an attacker stabbed a policeman close to the British parliament in what police called a “marauding terrorist attack”, Reuters reported.

The Islamic State (IS) claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement released by its Amaq news agency on Thursday.

“The perpetrator of the attacks yesterday in front of the British parliament in London is an IS soldier and he carried out the operation in response to calls to target citizens of the coalition,” the Amaq statement said.
