Update – April 6th 2017 A 31-year-old Romanian tourist who plunged into the River Thames during last month’s terror attack outside the British parliament has died.

The car used in the attack was rented in Birmingham, where a number of arrests have recently taken place.

Almost a full day later Daesh push out a release through Amaq which has been seen by media as “claiming responsibility”. This is merely an acknowledgement of the act. If Daesh were responsible the notification would have been released minutes after, not nearly a day later.
