Headquarters of the British Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) Building
London85 Albert Embankment is in the south western part of central London, rather incongruously for a national spy agency, the headquarters of the Secret Intelligence Service (occasionally known as MI6) is a very obvious landmark on the River Thames.
- The British MI6 Secret Intelligence Service building was attacked by a Russian-built Mark 22 anti-tank missile
- The missile was fired from a park between 200 and 500 yards from the building, on the south side of the Thames
- The building received minor damage- shattering an eighth floor window
