"We now know that a single terrorist detonated his improvised explosive device near one of the exits of the venue, deliberately choosing the time and place to cause maximum carnage and to kill and injure indiscriminately", Ms May said. She said Operation Tempura is in force, with armed forces replacing police to protect areas such as parliament. "From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry".
