  • Four people died and at least 40 others were injured Wednesday when a man rammed into several pedestrians on London’s Westminster Bridge before attacking a police officer stationed outside the British Parliament, police said. >> Read more trending news Mark Rowley, national head of counter-terrorism and policing for London metropolitan police and acting deputy commissioner, said the attacker and a police officer who he stabbed were among those killed. The Islamic State group claimed through its Aamaq news agency on Thursday that the attacker was “an Islamic State soldier,” according to multiple reports. Police were called at 2:40 p.m. GMT to respond to reports of a “firearms incident” at the bridge, just down the street from Parliament’s home at the Palace of Westminster, London metropolitan police said. Here’s what we know so far: A man mowed down several pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before stabbing a police officer who was guarding the Parliament building. The attacker crashed near Parliament before getting out of the car armed with a knife and attacking the officer, identified as 48-year-old Keith Palmer, Rowley said. Palmer, a former soldier who spent 15 years with London police, died as a result of the attack. Rowley said he worked in the police department’s Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command. Police opened fire on the  attacker, killing him. Police Cmdr. B.J. Harrington said authorities got multiple calls about the incident, including one about a woman in the River Thames. Authorities believe that she might have been on the bridge during the attack.  Four people died and at least 40 people were injured in the attack, Rowley said.  In a news conference Wednesday night, Rowley said the slain included three civilians. He later confirmed that only two civilians -- a woman in her mid-40s and a man in his mid-50s -- were killed. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints confirmed Thursday that a Utah man was killed in the attack. In a statement released to KSL, family members identified him as Kurt W. Cochran. Those injured in the bridge attack included three police officers who were on the way back from a commendation ceremony. French Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve confirmed on social media that French students were also among the injured. The students, between 15 and 16 years old, were visiting from Concarneau High School in Brittany, French newspaper Le Telegramme reported. The Islamic State group on Thursday claimed responsibility for the London attack, Reuters reported. 'The perpetrator of the attacks yesterday in front of the British parliament in London is an Islamic State soldier and he carried out the operation in response to calls to target citizens of the coalition,' the group said in a statement through Aamaq, according to Reuters. Police said Wednesday that they were treating the situation as terrorist-related “until we know otherwise.” An unidentified European security official told The Associated Press that chatter increased Tuesday on jihadi networks in response to the United Kingdom’s decision to ban electronics aboard flights from some Muslim-majority countries. The United States has adopted a similar measure. The attack took place on the one-year anniversary of the deadly Brussels Airport bombing. >> Related: Brussels terror attacks: What we know now The attacker was known to police and is believed to have acted alone, British Prime Minister Theresa May said in an address to the House of Commons. 'What I can confirm is that the man was British-born and that -- some years ago -- he was once investigated in relation to concerns about violent extremism,' May said. 'The case is historic -- he was not part of the current intelligence picture.' Police have arrested 8 people as part of a Westminster attack counter-terrorism investigation, investigators said Thursday. Rowley said Wednesday that police had searched six homes and launched inquiries in Birmingham, London and other parts of the country. “Hundreds of detectives have been working through the night,' he said. President Donald Trump has been briefed on the situation, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said. American officials are monitoring the situation. May condemned the “sick and depraved” attack and vowed that British spirit would not be broken by violence and terror in a statement Wednesday. “Tomorrow morning, Parliament will meet as normal. We will come together as normal,” she said. “And Londoners -- and others from around the world who have come here to visit this great city -- will get up and go about their day as normal. “They will board their trains, they will leave their hotels, they will walk these streets, they will live their lives. And we will all move forward together. Never giving in to terror. And never allowing the voices of hate and evil to drive us apart.”

  • A nail salon in Tennessee allegedly tried to cash in on people’s weight.  Deshania Ferguson said she was appalled after seeing this sign at Memphis nail salon: “Sorry. But if you are overweight, pedicures will be $45 due to service fees for pedicurists. Thank you!” the sign read. The owner of the alleged salon said the sign was not placed anywhere on his property despite the similarities between his business and the space seen in the photo. He told WREG that he didn’t put the sign up but he considered doing so, as he doesn’t want to provide pedicures to severely overweight customers. Son Nguyen said it is harder for his technicians to give heavier people pedicures and that they’ve broken chairs in the past, WREG reported. He said broken chairs have cost up to $2,500. The salon isn’t only specific in their practices regarding  weight. Nguyen told WREG his salon, which has been running for nine years, charges men an extra $5 because they don’t come as often.   Read more at WREG.  Brianna Chambers contributed to this report.
