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."
