A CONVICTED terrorist who served jail time over glorifying acts of terror was wrongly blamed for an attack that has killed four people in the heart of London.
The latest information suggests the suspected attacker named by parts of the media is still in prison.
A man stormed a security checkpoint outside the UK Houses of Parliament and stabbed a police officer on Wednesday afternoon.
The attacker was shot by police outside the Palace of Westminster. Police have confirmed that both the officer and the alleged terrorist died.
Before the attacker reached Parliament, at least 20 others were injured when he mowed down pedestrians in a car on a nearby bridge.
Police said they were treating the attack "as a terrorist incident until we know otherwise".
The building, in the heart of London, has been locked down and Parliament was suspended.
