Eighteen people were taken to hospital following a terror attack on a London Underground train on Friday, September 15, the London Ambulance Service said.
Witnesses reported seeing passengers “badly burned” following a fire or explosion on the train at Parsons Green station in west London.
None of the injured are thought to be in a serious or life-threatening condition, according to the London Ambulance Service.
It’s not yet clear what caused the blast, which occurred at about 8:20 a.m. local time (3:20 a.m. ET) Friday on a busy commuter line into central London.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the senior national coordinator for counterterrorism policing, has declared it a terrorist incident, the Met Police said in a statement.
Downing Street tweeted a message from Prime Minister Theresa May, saying: “My thoughts are with those injured at Parsons Green and emergency services who are responding bravely to this terrorist incident.”
