London has faced its fifth attack by terrorists in 2017, when a homemade bomb device exploded on a packed London commuter train during rush-hour.
The explosion occurred at 8:20am on Friday (local time), and 29 were injured when fire engulfed a carriage at Parsons Green underground station in West London.

The ambulance service reports none of the injured passengers were thought to be in a serious condition. Some suffered burns while others were injured in a stampede to escape the train and the station.
One woman – who only identified herself as Lauren to reporters – said the crowd “panicked” when they saw the fireball ripping through the train’s carriage.
