Scotland's parliament suspended its debate on authorising the government to seek a new independence referendum after Wednesday's attack on Britain's Houses of Parliament which police said they were treating as a terrorist incident.
The suspension was announced by the speaker of Holyrood, Ken Macintosh, after a policeman was stabbed, an assailant shot and several people injured in London.
