Among those injured in the attack next to the parliament buildings in the British capital were also 12 people from the UK, four from South Korea, two from Romania, two from Greece, and one person each from Germany, the United States and China, and a group of children from France, May said.

Police said a lone-wolf attacker killed three people and injured 40 before being shot dead by police near parliament.

British media reported on Thursday that seven people had been arrested in a number of raids following the attack.

Britain's most senior counter-terrorism officer, Mark Rowley, said the attack started when a car was driven over Westminster Bridge, near parliament, hitting and injuring a number of members of the public.

After the car crashed, a man armed with a knife “continued the attack and tried to enter parliament”, Rowley said.

Polish President Andrzej Duda and Prime Minister Beata Szydło have sent condolences to PM May after the attack.
