LONDON, September 15. /TASS/. Police believe the explosion that hit a London underground train at Parsons Green station was a terrorist incident, a Scotland Yard spokesman told Sky News. According to him, the Counter Terrorism Command are investigating into the incident.
An improvised explosive device detonated on a tube train in London on Friday, Met Police assistant commissioner Mark Rowley said. "There was an explosion on a tube train," he said. "We now assess that is was a detonation of an improvised explosive device," Rowley added.
Passengers say they saw a bright flash, some even claim that it affected the entire tube car. Some people suffered burns, while others were injured in the stampede that followed the blast.
According to the Daily Mail, at least 20 people have been injured. The District Line has been suspended between Earls Court and Wimbledon station.
Around 50 firefighters are said to be at the scene. Meanwhile, Sky News said that the bomb had not detonated as intended, which prevented fatalities.
