UK police declare MP killing 'terrorist incident'

The Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command (CTC) announced that the killing of Sir David Amess, the Member of the British Parliament for Southend West, has been "declared as a terrorist incident."

The CTC issued a statement explaining that "the early investigation" has given the police a reason to look into "a potential link to Islamist extremism."

It is believed that the perpetrator acted alone, but the police are still "carrying out searches at two addresses in the London area," the statement read.
