6 men arrested in connection with London train attack
Six men have been arrested in connection with an home-made bomb attack which injured 30 when it partially detonated on a packed London train a week.
The attack had the potential to cause much more damage, the head of the city’s police force said on Friday.
The bomb engulfed a train carriage in flames at Parsons Green underground station in west London last Friday, in Britain’s fifth major terrorism incident this year.
“That was a very very dangerous bomb. It partially detonated, it had a large quantity of explosive, and it was packed with shrapnel. So it could have been so much worse,” Cressida Dick, Commissioner of London’s Metropolitan Police, said in an interview on LBC radio.
She said that six militant plots had been foiled over the last several months.
Four of the six men have remained in custody.
