British authorities say a 21-year-old man has been arrested on terrorism charges in connection with Friday’s attack on a subway station in London.
An 18-year-old man was arrested by police early Saturday morning. Authorities have not released the names of either suspects. Police called the arrest of the first suspect “very significant.”
Following the first arrest, police launched a massive armed search in the southwestern London suburb of Sunbury. Residents said they were evacuated immediately as police established a huge cordon and imposed a no-fly zone above the property being searched.
29 people were injured in the explosion at the Parsons Green station. The blast sent, what witnesses described, as a fireball through the packed train during the Friday morning rush hour. The injuries, some from the explosion and others from an ensuing stampede, where not life-threatening.
British authorities increased the country’s terror threat level to “critical,” meaning they think another attack may be imminent.
