Terrorist Attack - London Underground

An explosion occurred on a crowded London Underground train this  morning, leading to multiple injuries in what's being investigated as  yet another terrorist attack on the British city. The New York Times  reports that the incident occurred on a District Line train around 8:20  a.m. local time as it was departing Parsons Green station in the  southwest part of the city. 

At least 18 people were taken to hospitals,  but nobody is believed to have sustained life-threatening injuries. An  image circulating on social media shows what looks like some sort of  container on fire as it sits on the floor of a train car. The photo was  allegedly taken by a passenger as he and others fled the train.
