Police in London have released a photo of the officer who died during what they called a "marauding terrorist attack," in Westminster on Wednesday (March 22).

The dead police officer was identified as Keith Palmer, 48, with 15 years of service.

Five people were killed and about 40 injured after a car drove into pedestrians and a suspected Islamist-inspired attacker stabbed the policeman close to Britain`s parliament.

It was the deadliest attack in London since four British Islamists killed 52 commuters and themselves in suicide bombings on the city's transport system in July 2005, in London's worst peacetime attack.
