British Prime Minister Theresa May addressed lawmakers in Parliament today after a deadly domestic terror attack left at least three people dead and around 40 others wounded on Wednesday. 

"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," May said. "And our resolve will never waiver in the face of terrorism."

The alleged assailant is a British-born man who had previously been investigated by British intelligence for connections to violent extremism. He plowed a car into crowds of people on Westminster Bridge on Wednesday afternoon and he also stabbed and killed a police officer.

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack, calling the man a "soldier of the caliphate." British authorities believe the attacker acted alone.
