  • Emergency services attending an incident at Parsons Green station in west London amid reports of an explosion

Thirty people sustained mostly flash burn injuries when an improvised explosive device partially exploded in an underground train at the Parsons Green station on the District Line.

Trump made the comment after tweeting about a reported explosion and fire on a subway train in London that police say was a terrorist incident.

Following the attack, Prime Minister Theresa May announced the UK terrorism threat level was raised from 'severe' to 'critical.' 'Critical' is the highest threat level.

"Military personnel have been drafted in to protect national infrastructure sites, allowing additional armed police officers to carry out patrols", a Met Police statement said, adding that people can expect to see more police, some of them armed, "at crowded places, iconic sites, transport hubs and ports" this weekend.

Parsons Green is a mainly residential area in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, not far from Chelsea.

Police confirmed that the explosion on the London Underground on Friday morning was a terrorist incident.

Mr Rowley said the IED had now been made safe and was being examined by specialist forensic scientists.

Shortly after the attack, armed police descended into the Parsons Green station. For strong investigative reasons we will not give any more details on the man we arrested at this stage.

Abella said the Philippine Embassy in London was closely monitoring the situation in the United Kingdom. "This is a proportionate and sensible step which will provide extra reassurance and protection while the investigation progresses", the Guardian quoted May as saying.

I utterly condemn the hideous individuals who target innocent people and attempt to use terror to harm us and destroy our way of life. Ambassador to London Antonio Lagdameo said they are continuously monitoring the situation.
