(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of Britain's biggest opposition party, voiced his condemnation of the attack on Westminster Bridge on Wednesday (March 22) and said he expected "the deepest possible enquiry" to look into the security set-up at parliament. Five people were killed and about 40 injured in London after a car ploughed into pedestrians and a suspected Islamist-inspired attacker stabbed a policeman close to Britain's parliament. The dead, in what police called a "marauding terrorist attack," included the assailant and the policeman he stabbed. The other three victims were among those hit by the car as it sped across Westminster Bridge before crashing into railings just outside parliament. It was the deadliest attack in London since four British Islamists killed 52 commuters and themselves in suicide bombings on the city's transport system in July 2005, in London's worst peacetime attack.
