ISIS Claims Responsibility for London Terror Attack

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for Wednesday’s terror attack in London that killed five and injured dozens of others, multiple media outlets are reporting.

In a statement posted on Amaq, the terror group’s news agency, the attacker was referred to as a “soldier of Islamic State” although his identity was not revealed and the statement was scarce on details. 

This post will be updated as additional information becomes available. 

Update: The full statement reads: "The attacker yesterday in front of the British parliament in London was a soldier of the Islamic State, executing the operation in response to calls to target citizens of coalition nations."
