It was the silence Thursday that was the most poignant reminder of the terror attack outside Britain's Parliament.But outside, where normally there is noisy traffic, crowds of tourists, busy-looking MPs and officials walking in and out, the Palace of Westminster – cordoned off since Wednesday afternoon – was eerily quiet.Parliament was locked down during the attack, in which the suspect first mowed down scores of people on nearby Westminster Bridge, leaving two members of the public dead and dozens injured.Westminster's Underground station remained closed early Thursday, while Parliament Square, Westminster Abbey and several adjoining roads were closed off.Flags on government buildings around Westminster flew at half-mast, but many people were walking or cycling into work as usual.
