ISIS claims responsibility for London terror attack

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the terror attack that left four people dead, including the assailant and a police officer, outside of London’s Parliament building on Wednesday.

“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 Amaq statement said.

In a defiant speech, May vowed that Britain's freedoms and liberties would remain undiminished.

"Yesterday an act of terrorism tried to silence our democracy. But today we meet as normal -- as generations have done before us, and as future generations will continue to do -- to deliver a simple message: we are not afraid. And our resolve will never waiver in the face of terrorism.

"And we meet here, in the oldest of all Parliaments, because we know that democracy -- and the values it entails -- will always prevail," May said.
