British police said Monday that a car explosion that took place outside a hospital in northwest England that left one person dead and another injured on Sunday was a “terrorist incident.”

The blast occurred right before 11 a.m. local time as a taxi pulled up outside an entrance of Liverpool Women’s Hospital, according to a Merseyside Police statement.
