LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May will chair a meeting of the government’s emergency security committee on Wednesday after what the police described as a “terrorist incident” outside the parliament building.

“There is a COBR meeting taking place today,” a spokesman at the office of the British Prime Minister said on Wednesday.
