At 8:20 am Friday morning a bomb went off on an eastbound district line train leaving the Green Parson Station in Southwest London. Photos and videos of the bomb showed it to be a white bucket in a bag with wires an flames coming out of it.
At least 22 people were hospitalized and none sustained life threatening injuries.
Immediately after the incident, authorities strengthened security around the transit system as more police enforcement arrived on the scene. Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley of the Metropolitan police is urging any witnesses that have photo or video on what happened to come forward.
President Trump tweeted “Another attack in London by a loser terrorist.These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!”
This is the 5th terrorist attack to happen on Britain soil this year.
