Terrorism In Britain - Page 24
London's Metropolitan Police are investigating a Tube incident which has shut down part of a busy London Underground line as terrorism.
It's not yet clear what caused the security alert, which occurred at about 8:20 a.m. Local time (3:20 a.m. ET) at the height of rush hour on a busy commuter line into central London.
But witnesses tell CNN they heard announcements from officials that "Some kind of explosion" had occurred on a train at Parsons Green Tube station.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the senior national coordinator for counterterroism policing, has declared it a terrorist incident, the Met Police said in a statement. Ref. CNN.
