Life With Jihad – Another possible terrorist attack today in London England as a cab driver intentionally plows into a group of pedestrians outside the London Natural History Museum. It appears his rampage was hampered by the bollards and barricades recently put into place as a security precaution.

Nearby museums including the Science Museum were evacuated with Tube stations sealed off by police.
The injured were seen sitting on steps being bandaged up before they were wheeled away by paramedics.
Scotland Yard said they are keeping an open mind as to whether the incident is terror-related. A spokesman said a ‘number’ of people had been injured in the horror crash.
