Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and British Prime Minister Theresa May spoke Friday morning for the first time since the terror attack outside the Parliament building in London.

Netanyahu offered his condolences to the families of the victims and to all the British people.

May thanked Netanyahu and the two spoke of working together in the war on terror.

Around 40 people were injured and at least four reported dead in London on Wednesday after a car crashed into pedestrians near the British parliament and an assailant stabbed a policeman in what police called a terrorist incident.

The knifeman was then shot by police in the shadow of Big Ben, where he had tried to force his way into a courtyard just outside the Houses of Parliament.
