Five people were killed and several others wounded in a terror attack near the Houses of Parliament in London today. In her reaction, UK Prime Minister Theresa May sounded a defiant note, hours after the attack on the Houses of Parliament, insisting that life will go on in London as normal.
“We will all move forward together,” she told reporters in Downing Street. She offered her sympathies to the relatives of those who were killed, saying her “thoughts and prayers were with those who had waved their loved ones off, but will not now be welcoming them home” she said.
US President Donald Trump has also spoken to UK Prime Minister Theresa May to express his sympathy over the Westminster attack. Trump praised “the effective response of security forces and first responders,” and offered the US’s “full cooperation and support in responding to the attack and bringing those responsible to justice.”
