Terrorist Attack on a London Tube station

Witnesses describe "a fireball and smoke racing through the subway car" after a homemade bomb was detonated during rush hour on the London Underground. 22 people were injured in an attack that the police are calling a terrorist incident. Preliminary evidence points to a degree of bomb-making knowledge used to create the device, which had a timer and was clearly intended to cause much greater damage. Investigators have said that it is "highly likely" that the device contained TATP, but this has not been confirmed. Currently, a manhunt is underway to find the responsible parties for this attack.
