Breaking: 7 arrested over London attack

Seven people have been arrested after overnight raids on six homes over an attack outside the British parliament in London, according to UK police.
Mark Rowley, acting deputy commissioner at the Metropolitan police, on Thursday revised down the number of victims from four to three people after Wednesday’s attack in which a man ploughed into pedestrians in a car and then went on a stabbing spree before being shot dead.
At least 29 people were wounded in the attack, with seven being in critical condition, Rowley said.
“It is still our belief that the attacker acted alone was inspired by international terrorism,” he added.
