UK Lowers Terror Threat Level Following London Tube Bombing

UK Lowers Terror Threat Level Following London Tube Bombing”

London Metropolitan police arrested two more men early Wednesday in connection with last week's bombing of a subway vehicle in Parsons Green.

Authorities said officers arrested a 48-year-old man and a 30-year-old man in Newport, Wales.

Gwent Police supported terror police and the Welsh Extremism and Counter Terorrism Unit to arrested him under section 41 of the Terrorism Act.

A homemade bomb partially exploded at the Parsons Green station during rush hour.

On Sunday, authorities scaled Britain's threat level down to "severe" - meaning an attack is highly likely - from "critical", which means an attack is imminent.

Further searches are continuing at two addresses in Surrey and are expected to last some days, the police said.

The Metropolitan Police said that an address in Newport is being searched in this connection.

Scotland Yard said magistrates had granted warrants allowing the 18-year-old to be held until Saturday, and Farroukh until Thursday. None of the injuries was life-threatening, and experts said it appears the main charge of the bomb didn't detonate.

Thirty people were injured in the attack on September 15 at the Parsons Green subway stop in London. Police asked the traveling public to be vigilant and said there would be more armed police on the transit network for the time being.

The manager of a fried chicken restaurant in West London told the BBC that Faroukh was his employee and that he watched as undercover police officers surrounded him and took him into custody after his shift on Saturday night.

Police have searched several properties, including a home in Sunbury where an elderly couple served as foster parents for many children over several decades.

The video shows a figure dressed in grey carrying a white supermarket carrier bag about 80 minutes before the blast.

A homemade bomb planted in a rush-hour subway auto partially detonated Friday, injuring 30 people.

The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but British officials say there is no proof yet that it was involved.
