London: One woman has died and other people are being treated for “catastrophic” injuries after an attack near the British parliament on Wednesday, British news agency Press Association reported, citing a junior doctor at a central London hospital.

Reuters reporters inside parliament heard loud bangs and shortly afterwards a Reuters photographer said he saw at least a dozen people injured on Westminster Bridge, next to parliament, in what police said they are treating as a terrorist incident.
