Attacker Had 4-Foot Sword Outside of Buckingham Palace

The Metropolitan Police force said officers stopped a 26-year-old man who deliberately drove at a police van Friday night near Queen Elizabeth II's London residence, one of the city's top tourist attractions. "Uniformed officers then confronted the driver of the vehicle and during that confrontation the driver reached for a 4-foot sword" in the car, said Dean Haydon, commander of the Metropolitan Police counterterrorism branch. The suspect repeatedly shouted "Allahu akbar!" ("God is great" in Arabic), Haydon said. Three London police officers were slightly injured while struggling to arrest him, he added. Police believed the suspect was acting alone and were not looking for other suspects Saturday. Counterterror officers were carrying out searches in Luton, north of London, where the suspect was from. 
The suspect was taken to the hospital for minor injuries and remained in custody in a London police station. No one other than him and the police officers was injured. British Prime Minister Theresa May and London Mayor Sadiq Khan thanked police for acting quickly to protect the public.
