Bomb blast in London metro, police declares it terrorist incident


London, 15 September(Wishav Warta): Scotland Yard declared an explosion on the arterial District Line of London’s Tube network on Friday as a terror incident, which injured several passengers and hit morning rush hour, reminding some of the panic caused by the July 2005 attacks.

The blast in a white canister at Parson Green Station in south-west London caused burn injuries to some passengers. The police said its Counter-Terrorism Command was investigating the incident. “Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the senior national coordinator for CT policing, has declared it a terrorist incident,” Scotland Yard said in a statement.

Police were called at approximately 08:20 am local time to the underground station following reports of a fire on the train.
