London Underground Blast is Terror Incident

TWITTER

"My thoughts are with those injured at Parsons Green and emergency services who are responding bravely to this terrorist incident", tweeted British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Speaking in Downing Street after chairing a meeting of the Cobra emergency committee, she said there would be an increased armed police presence on the transport network in London.

Speaking at the incident, a Metropolitan Police spokesperson said they were investigating a "critical and extremely serious incident", relating to what seemed like an "item exploding to a small degree".

Trump tweeted Friday: "Another attack in London by a loser terrorist. Officers are in attendance".

The explosion took place at the rushed hour on a District Line Tube when the train pulled into Parson Parsons Green station.

Witnesses said they saw a white "builder's bucket" in a supermarket bag, and pictures online appeared to show a flaming bucket with wires protruding from it inside a plastic carrier bag on the floor of a carriage.

United Kingdom police and London ambulance services are responding to the incident at Parsons Green station, southwest of the capital.

Police later confirmed that an "improvised explosive device" was detonated as the service made its way from Wimbledon to Edgware Road. The country's threat level now stands at "severe", the second-highest behind "critical". Authorities said most of the victims had "flash burns".

Eyewitnesses outside the station reported seeing people with facial injuries.

A manhunt is under way to identify the man who placed the home-made device on the subway carriage.

London's Mayor Sadiq Khan insists London will "never be intimidated" by terrorists, while the Home Secretary Amber Rudd says people have been "targeted in a callous and indiscriminate way".

The Met Police SO15 Counter Terrorism Command is leading the response.

He later added: "Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner".
