Britain's parliament reopened Thursday with a minute's silence in memory of three people killed in a suspected "Islamist-related" attack on the symbol of the country's democracy.With MPs projecting an air of "business as usual," armed police arrested eight people in raids linked to Wednesday's deadly assault carried out in the shadow of Big Ben that sowed panic in the heart of London.Britain had until Wednesday's attack been spared amid a series of deadly jihadist assaults in Europe.The attack in London came a year to the day after Islamic State jihadists killed 32 people in twin bomb attacks in Brussels.Britain's top anti-terror officer Mark Rowley said police had raided six houses in London, the central city of Birmingham and elsewhere.Hundreds of extra police were on patrol as officers worked around the clock to piece together what happened in the deadliest attack in Britain since four suicide bombers killed 52 people on London's transport system in July 2005 .
