Police responded Friday night to an area outside Buckingham Palace due to an alleged assault.

An official report issued by the Metropolitan Police stated, "A man has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and assault on police" following an incident that occurred sometime around 8:35pm local time.

London police have been praised for their quick response to the attack.

"During the course of detaining him, two male police officers suffered minor injuries to their arm".

There are no other details yet as to whether the incident is related to terrorism.


Images posted online showed a heavy police presence outside the palace, with emergency vehicles packing out the road. They have not been taken to hospital.

The officers were treated at the scene.

Queen Elizabeth II was not at the palace, her official residence, palace officials said.

The attack happened just one hour after a man was shot in the centre of Brussels after attacking two soldiers with a "machete".

"We believe that it is a terrorist attack", said a prosecutors´ office spokeswoman, who added the attacker "is dead".
