Two Arrested as ISIS Takes Credit for London Attack

An improvised bomb exploded on a crowded London Underground train Friday  morning, wounding at least 30 people in the fourth terrorist attack on  the British capital within the past year. On Saturday, two men were  arrested as suspects in the incident, which the Islamic State claims was  carried out by an "affiliate unit." The New York Times reports  that the unnamed suspects were an 18-year-old man and a 21-year-old man.  

The attack 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. Nobody is believed to have sustained life-threatening  injuries, while images allegedly shot by train passengers show what  looks like a container or bucket on fire as it sits on the floor. 

The AP  reports that a "massive manhunt" is currently underway, while President  Trump tweeted, "Another attack in London by a loser terrorist...Loser  terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner."
