US Embassy in London Locked Down After 'Alarm'

People inside the US embassy in London were told to move away from windows and stay indoors amid an ongoing situation, a witness said on February 22.

“Alarm at the US Embassy in London. They told us to move far from the windows. The situation is ongoing,” said Aro Korol, who posted a video showing people sitting on the floor and security personnel inside the building.

It was not immediately clear what prompted the closure. The embassy did not immediately answer a request for comment.
