Thousands of Londoners protest against terrorism

Show solidarity to victims’ families

Thousands of Londoners are marching in the streets of the city expressing their solidarity to the families of the victims of Wednesday’s terrorist attack. A day after the attacks that cost the lives of 4 people and the injury of 29 at the Westminster Bridge and the British parliament, many locals took to the streets and placed flowers at the site of the attacks in their memory and in an effort to send a clear anti-terrorist message.

People including a man draped in the Union Flag, John Loughrey (C), light candles on a patch of sand during a vigil in Trafalgar Square in central London on March 23, 2017 in solidarity with the victims of the March 22 terror attack at the British parliament and on Westminster Bridge.  Britain's parliament reopened on Thursday with a minute's silence in a gesture of defiance a day after an attacker sowed terror in the heart of Westminster, killing three people before being shot dead. Sombre-looking lawmakers in a packed House of Commons chamber bowed their heads and police officers also marked the silence standing outside the headquarters of London's Metropolitan Police nearby.  / AFP PHOTO / Adrian DENNIS
