UK Parliament goes on lockdown after attacks in London

Hosted by

The Houses of Parliament and Westminster Bridge are the UK's Center of Government and worldwide tourist attractions. Today, they were subject to a stabbing, and five people were struck down by a car. A spokesman for Scotland Yard reported that "the senior national coordinator has declared this a terrorist incident. And although we remain open minded to the motive, a full counter-terrorism investigation is underway." Michael Goldfarb is the host of the podcast "First Rough Draft of History" and is a former London correspondent for NPR and Politico. He says that the attack is similar to that last year's attack in Nice, France.
