On Tuesday, August 14, a man in a silver Ford Fiesta attempted to run several people over near the British Parliament. Two people were hospitalized and one more suffered minor injuries. None of the injuries are expected to be life-threatening.

Twenty-nine-year-old Salih Khater, who immigrated to England from Sudan, was not known to police or counterterrorism units and was not on a watch list, even though British counter-terrorism police are carrying out 676 live investigations. The investigation number has increased from the 500 investigations in March. This attack was the fourth vehicle attack in Britain in less than 18 months.

Sudan is a country in Africa that neighbors Egypt and Saudi Arabia. It is regarded as an unstable country with active terrorist cells and training camps. At this time, it is unknown if Khater is a lone attacker or part of a larger cell in England. No weapons were found at the scene.

The attack serves as a haunting reminder to a terror attack similar in style that occurred in 2017. Last year, in the same place, a 52 year-old man by the name of Khalid Masood killed five and injured 50. He started by running over people with his car, then crashed the vehicle through the gate of the Palace of Westminster and stabbed an officer. Masood was then shot dead by a security official. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack.

British authorities said they are considering turning the area around Parliament into a pedestrian zone to prevent vehicular attacks, in addition to many vehicle barriers and heavily armed police already stationed around the area.
