The attacker was not identified by name and fortunately, he was disarmed/overpowered by the two police officers he attacked, being arrested at approximately 8.30pm, which is very close to the Brussels attack. Coincidence?

This maniac attacked the cops with a sword in front of dozens of horrified tourists. Following the incident, tourists were evacuated from the Buckingham Palace by the police.
