UK police, Muslim youths to link hands to mark London attack

Members of a Muslim organisation and British police officers were among hundreds of people gathered on Westminster Bridge today, the site of the London terror strike last week, to pay tribute to the victims of the attack.The London attack which left four people dead was a “wake up call” for technology firms to get their house in order over extremist material being circulated on the internet, the acting head of London’s police force said on Wednesday.PC Keith Palmer, 48, was standing guard at the palace gates when he was stabbed in the chest.Victims of the attack include PC Keith Palmer, 48, a husband and father of a five-year-old girl, and U.S. tourist American Kurt Cochran, 54, who was in London with his wife to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary.A provisional date for the pre-inquest review into the death of the attacker, who was shot dead by a police marksman at the scene, was also set for May 19 at the Royal Courts of Justice.Regarding the police’s ongoing inquiry into last week’s attack, Mackey said detectives still believed Masood had acted alone.Westminster Coroner’s Court heard on Thursday that the Kent-born 52-year-old earlier mounted the kerb twice in a Hyundai auto as he sped across Westminster Bridge, killing three people and leaving dozens injured.An independent review will look into how the perimeter fence surrounding the Parliamentary estate is secured after Khalid Masood, armed with a knife, ran into New Palace Yard and murdered PC Keith Palmer last Wednesday.None of Masood’s family were in court, in contrast to the 10 relatives who attended earlier inquests into the deaths of his four main victims.Crossley said there were in excess of 1,500 potential witnesses, of whom at least 140 were considered significant. So far 12 people have been arrested, with two still in police custody.Mr Rhodes was pronounced dead at London’s King’s College the following day from a head injury, while Pc Palmer died at the scene after being stabbed in the chest.A man and woman have jumped off Westminster Bridge a week after the terrorist attack in London, according to reports.More than 35 people were injured in the attack, with wounds ranging from cuts and bruises to extensive bone and skull fractures.
