NYPD monitoring London subway 'terror incident'

NYPD monitoring London subway 'terror incident'”

"NYPD closely monitoring incident on London subway moments ago", Police Commissioner James O'Neill posted to Twitter.

Photos from the scene show a scorched white bucket with wires coming out of it sitting on the subway floor.

Twenty-two people were wounded when the improvised explosive device blew up on a train at Parsons Green station. The NYPD says it has moved additional police officers, bomb detection canines, and heavy weapons teams to the city transit system until it learns more about the events in London.

One man visiting from London said the extra police presence in Times Square is welcome. The MTA will increase security "out of an overabundance of caution", said Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

"The safety and security of New Yorkers is our number one priority, and we remain in close contact with local and federal officials", Cuomo said.
