Westminster terror attack Suspect charged

A silver Ford Fiesta driven by Salih Khater, 29, allegedly lurched at cyclists who had stopped at traffic lights near the Palace of Westminster before mounting the pavement and speeding towards officers at 7.30am on Tuesday.

A man accused of crashing his vehicle into the security barriers surrounding Britain's Houses of Parliament was charged Saturday with attempted murder, police said.

"Due to the methodology, iconic location and the alleged targeting of civilians and police officers, the CPS [Crown Prosecution Service] are treating this case as terrorism", it said.

Salih Khater, a United Kingdom national of Sudanese origin and from the Birmingham area, was arrested at the scene in London by armed officers.

Three people were injured when Khater, a British citizen originally from Sudan, hit a group of cyclists before colliding with security outside Parliament on Tuesday.

Earlier this week, a friend of Khater's told the Daily Telegraph that he was not himself as of late.
