Live Coverage Of London Terror Attack

London – An explosion inside a full London subway car Friday wounded more than 20 people in what authorities quickly branded a terror attack.

Witnesses said they heard a loud bang after 8 a.m. local time that was followed by a gush of fire on the train at the Parsons Green station in southwest London, according to local reports.

Photos from the scene showed a burning white bucket wrapped in a plastic bag, which is suspected to have caused the explosion. Officials believe the device had a timer, the BBC and Sky News reported.

More than 250 people were evacuated from the train, London’s fire department told the Guardian.
