JEFF POWELL IN SAN FRANCISCO: For Amir Khan the antidote to pain has been to grow up and calm down.
Three were killed and many were left with 'catastrophic' injuries amid a scene of horrifying carnage.Armed police have been involved in a raid at a hotel in Birmingham this evening, closing off part of the city for more than two hours.There have been reports that the road is the same one as the driver rented a car from which was used in the London terror attacks on Wednesday afternoon.The video was taken by a woman who can be heard repeatedly stating 'Oh my god', before asking aloud: 'What coward is doing this?Oh lord.' An intruder with a knife managed to break into the grounds of Parliament and stabbed a police officer before he was shot, reports suggest.Metropolitan Police at Scotland Yard are handling enquiries on the operation but they could not answer any questions for 'operational reasons'.
WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT Casualties are shown being treated by passers-by on Westminster Bridge, where police say around 20 people were injured.
A huge area around the palace has now been cordoned off, including the bridge, as police remain on high alert in fear of any subsequent attacks on what it the heart of Britain's political establishment.
Police were facing serious questions last night over how the knife-wielding terrorist was able to enter the Parliamentary estate.
French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have both expressed their support and solidarity with Britain after today's attack.
In a statement from the White House, the president 'pledged full cooperation and support of the United States Government in responding to the attack and bringing those responsible to justice.' Pictured, the lights of the Eiffel Tower, which were dimmed in solidarity with the victims.
London is a city so desperate to be seen as tolerant, no news of the injured was released. Of those who managed to dive out of the murderous path of the maniac behind the London terror attacks, one ended up under a bus and two leapt over the bridge to try to escape the terrifying scene.
