Armed police opened fire on a auto that drove into the Ukrainian ambassador's official vehicle in London this morning.
No diplomatic staff were injured in the incident and nor was the suspect, a man in his 40s, but he was taken to hospital as a precaution after being arrested, the police said. As the spokesman explained, a person inside the auto that rammed into the diplomat's vehicle posed a threat and thus police had to open fire. When they arrived, the silver Mercedes was said to have been driven at police officers and collided with a number of parked vehicles near the Ukrainian embassy.
