Soldiers were on their way to the British parliament for guard duty after the government raised its terror threat level following an attack that killed 22 people, police told an AFP photographer at the scene.

Armed soldiers will replace police at key sites under the plan announced by Prime Minister Theresa May, freeing up police resources to pursue an investigation into a possible wider network behind Monday's attack in Manchester.
