    Explosion At London Subway Station Leaves 18 People Injured

    September 15, 2017 Admin 3 Comments

    (Daily Caller News Foundation) At least 18 people were taken to the hospital Friday after an explosion at a subway station in southwest London.
    The blast took place 8:20 a.m. local time in the middle of rush hour at the Parsons Green station, BBC reports. Pictures show a white bucket on fire inside a supermarket bag. The Metropolitan Police could not confirm the cause of the fire but the incident is treated as an act of terror.
    “My thoughts are with those injured at Parsons Green and emergency services who are responding bravely to this terrorist incident,” Prime Minister Theresa May said in a tweet.
    London Mayor Sadiq Khan said the city “will never be intimidated or defeated by terrorism” in a brief statement on his Facebook page.

    The city has been struck with two major attacks this year. Five people were killed after Khalid Masood, 52, drove a car into pedestrians March 22 on Westminster Bridge. He subsequently stabbed an officer as he attempted to enter the parliament building. A similar attack took place June 3 after three men rammed down pedestrians on London Bridge and went on a stabbing rampage in the area. Ten victims were killed and dozens were injured.
    More than one person per day on average is arrested for a terror-related offense in the United Kingdom, according to government figures released Thursday.
    There were 379 terror-related arrests during a 12-month period ending in June. The figure marks a 68 percent increase from the year before and is the highest since the government started collecting data in 2001. More than 90 percent of all offenses are related to Islamic fundamentalism.

    Parsons Green: Armed police search house over Tube bombing

    • 9/16/17

    Police have arrested an 18-year-old man on suspicion of a terror offence in connection with Friday's attack on a London Tube train.

    Armed police are searching a house in Sunbury, Surrey, where residents close to the address are being evacuated.
    The arrest is "significant" but the terror threat level remains "critical", Home Secretary Amber Rudd said.
    The man was held in Dover on Saturday and taken to a Kent police station - he will be moved to south London later.
    Thirty people were injured after the explosion on a train at Parsons Green.

    Ms Rudd chaired a meeting of the government's Cobra emergency committee and it concluded the UK terrorist threat level should remain at "critical".

    After the meeting, she said it was "much too early" to say whether those behind the attack were known to authorities, adding: "The operation is ongoing".
    In Sunbury, residents near to the address have been told to leave their homes and cordons are in place at a 100-metre radius to the property.
    One evacuated resident, Anna Wilkins, told BBC News she was "shaking like jelly" after being told by armed police to leave the home she shares with her partner and two young children.
    "As I walked out of my house I saw three armed officers," she said. "One had a balaclava on, all I could see were his eyes, I was really frightened."
    About 200 Sunbury residents have been evacuated to a nearby rugby club where one, Dan Norcott, told the BBC the local council was making preliminary arrangements for hotel accommodation if it was needed.

    Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick described the attack as "cowardly and indiscriminate".

    Ms Dick, who travelled by Tube to Waterloo station before joining Met officers patrolling the South Bank, said: "London has not stopped after other terrible attacks and it will not stop after this one."
    It had been raised to that level - which is the highest and means an attack may be imminent - on Friday evening.
    Met Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said the public should remain vigilant, adding that the force was not changing its "protective security measures" and extra armed officers were still being deployed.

    Operation Temperer, which involves the use of the military and was put in place after the threat level was raised, is being stepped up gradually. Home affairs correspondent Danny Shaw said it is focused on London and the south-east of England and is being described as "light-touch", and not on the same scale as what was seen after the Manchester Arena attack.

    Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said "significant" police activity would continue over the weekend and thanked police, adding: "They are there to keep us safe".

    More armed police officers will be present at London Underground stations, as well as at stations across England, Scotland and Wales, British Transport Police Assistant Chief Constable Robin Smith told the BBC.

    Most people caught in the blast were treated for minor injuries and have been released, NHS England said, but three people remain in Chelsea and Westminster hospital in central London.

    Analysis: A 'critical' change

    By BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner
    This is the fourth time the UK national terror threat level has been raised to "critical" since the system was made public in 2006.
    The last time was in May this year following the Manchester Arena bombing, when it was wrongly thought that the bomb-maker was still at large and could strike again.
    In the case of Parsons Green it is perhaps surprising that it took the government so long - over 12 hours - to raise the threat level to critical, under advice from the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre, when it was obvious the perpetrator had neither died nor been caught.
    Each time the level has gone to critical, it has only stayed at this highest level of alertness for three to four days - this is partly as it involves an unsustainably high tempo for the police, intelligence and security services.
    Extra patrols are mounted on the streets of London, covert surveillance is stepped up and troops are deployed to free up police officers to focus on the main effort: catching the bomber before he can plant another device.
    But the very fact that yesterday's attack took place with no warning shows this system is only a broad guide to the threat and simply reflects the latest assessment.

    The BBC understands CCTV images have been obtained of the person suspected of planting the explosive device.
    The Islamic State group has said it was behind the bomb, which detonated at 08:20 BST on Friday.

    It is understood the device had a timer, but the BBC's security correspondent Frank Gardner said the bomb appeared not to have gone off properly.

    Had it worked as intended, it would have killed everyone around it and maimed everyone in the train carriage for life, he said.

    pic from another bbc thread stating:
    It is "quite unusual" for a device to be found intact and it means investigators may be able to find evidence such as fibres and DNA, says David Videcette, a former counter-terrorism detective in the Metropolitan Police.
    There has been some speculation that the bomb, contained in a bucket and carried in a Lidl freezer bag, was unfinished and was being transported.
    Mr Videcette thinks it is incorrect to say that the bomb was unfinished, adding that it was similar in terms of the materials used to the device in the 7 July 2005 terror attack.

    The Met's Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said it was "very routine" for the Islamic State group to claim the attack, whether in contact with those involved or not.
    Police have spoken to 45 witnesses so far and have received 77 images and videos from the public.
    They urge anyone with information to get in touch and to upload pictures and video to the website or to call the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321.
