SEOUL: Five South Korean tourists were injured in a terror attack outside Britain's parliament, Seoul's foreign ministry said today. The tourists -- four women and a man in their 50s or 60s -- were knocked to the ground by people trying to flee as an assailant mowed down pedestrians in a car, the ministry said.
While four of them suffered relatively light injuries including a fracture, one -- a woman in her late 60s -- suffered a head injury and was going through surgery, it said. They were being treated in two local hospitals, it added.
The assault began when a car was driven over Westminster Bridge next to London's parliament building -- a major tourist attraction -- hitting and injuring several members of the public. Three, including a police officer, were killed in the attack by the assailant who was subsequently shot dead by armed police.
