London’s Terror Attack Signing Europe as The New Target of Terror Groups

The attack began early Wednesday afternoon as a driver in a gray SUV slammed into pedestrians on the bridge linking Parliament to the south bank of the River Thames.  The car crashed into railings on the north side of the bridge, less than 200 yards (meters) from the entrance to Parliament.
