Top cop: London metro station terror incident caused by bomb

Panic in London First moments after Parsons Green explosion caught on camera

Metropolitan Police Asst. Commissioner Marc Rowley said an improvised explosive device is suspected in the blast.

A picture on social media showed a white bucket inside a supermarket bag, but did not appear to suggest extensive damage in the carriage, reports the BBC.

London police are being supported by Britain's MI5 intelligence service, he said.

Transit officials increased security Friday at Bay Area BART stations in the wake of a terrorist bombing in London that left 22 people injured.

"Our city utterly condemns the ugly individuals who attempt to use terror to harm us and destroy our way of life", he said. REUTERS/Kevin Coombs emergency services attending an incident at Parsons Green station in west London amid reports of an explosion.

Mrs May said she would chair a meeting of the National Security Committee later today.

Police in London are treating an explosion on a packed commuter train Friday as a terror attack.

The device detonated at about 8.15am during the morning rush hour in the capital.

The station was closed, as well as an entire section of the District Line, and police urged people to stay away from the area.

British Prime Minister Theresa May condemned the "cowardly" attack, which she said had "intended to cause significant harm".

May also tweeted: My thoughts are with those injured at Parsons Green and emergency services who are responding bravely to this terrorist incident.

London ambulance services said they had sent multiple crews to the Parsons Green station in the southwest of the city. "I looked up and saw the whole carriage engulfed in flames making its way towards me", he told Reuters news agency.

President Donald Trump claimed that investigators were aware of the person who carried out the attack.

The Friday blast came after four deadly attacks in London this year - Westminster Bridge, London Bridge and Finsbury Park, and one in Manchester at a concert of USA pop singer Ariana Grande.
