London police were searching for the attacker who detonated a homemade bomb on Friday that sent a blast of flames and smoke to a London subway, injuring at least 29 hours and sending mobs in panic struggling for safety in what the police called a terrorist incident. On Friday night, authorities had given no details on the suspects. Security measures were reinforced in London’s extensive transit system, and the government described the threat level of the criticism, which meant that another attack might be imminent. British media reported that the brute device, transported in a bucket and pushed into a shopping bag, a group of Islamic state terrorists claimed responsibility for the blast on its Amaq news website. Experts have warned that the group often seeks credits for attacks that it has been able to inspire as well as those that have nothing to do.
The explosion on the London Underground will revive an acute debate over whether countries like Britain have been tough enough to fight terrorism. Within hours of the blast, President Trump suggested that the UK should be “more proactive”. Shortly thereafter, Prime Minister Theresa May replied that this criticism was not helpful. “This was a device designed to cause significant damage,” May said, but it is unclear if the explosive may have prematurely exploded or failed at Parsons Green station, about two miles south west of central London. He was not sure if the suspected attacker was among the wounded or was now running. In a sign that a hunt could be mobilized, the London police asked the public to send pictures of mobile phones to the scene. British media said investigators had closed-circuit television footage of a suspect. The unit of the house exploded on the incoming train, nine stops from Westminster.
After the attack, Trump tweeted, “Another attack in London by a losing terrorist, they are sick and denied to the people who were in the sites of Scotland Yard.” They must be proactive! It was not clear if Trump had been briefed by his security advisers and knew something about the identity of the assailants. At that time, neither the London police nor the British government had said anything publicly beyond the description of the detonation as an alleged terrorist attack. As a result of Trump’s tweets, and not to mention the American name by name, May said it was not useful for anyone to speculate about … Later, during a brief appearance outside the White House, Trump hammered a line message hard saying, “We have to be very smart and we have to be very, very hard – maybe we are not hard enough.” In an election campaign the British Prime Minister has repeatedly promised new tough measures, which promised that “if human rights laws hampered the protection of Britain, these laws.
At that time, experts wondered whether the difficult May talks could be accompanied by more action in a country considered one of the most proactive in the world against terrorism. “The threat is now so widespread that it is not clear how these measures could be used more effectively to prevent future attacks,” said Raffaello Pantucci, director of the Group’s International Security Studies at the Royal United Services Institute in London. “One of the few possibilities would be to impose harsher penalties for terror-related crimes, and this is certainly something under consideration.” “There’s only so much you can do,” he said. “I do not think the British want to have armed police in every corner of the street.” Shortly after the blast, the populist right-wing British Popular Party, or UKIP, tweeted: “Thank God, no one is seriously #ParsonsGreen, but we can not depend on the incompetence of the jihadist.” Officials said that 29 injured had been burned to a very high degree. Emergency services reported that none of those who suffered had fatal injuries.
“We have hundreds of detectives involved in watching [CCTV], forensics and communicating with witnesses,” said Mark Rowley, head of the London anti-terrorism unit. is located in Fulham, a neighborhood of Victorian rowhouses and leafy parks, known for its furniture designers and Champions League football. Witnesses described a fireball and smoke races through the subway car and then a frenetic accident of people trying to escape while others tried to help those who had burns and other injuries. Luke Walmsley, a 33-year-old editor, was on his way to work during a normal morning, moving, listening to music. And then, things were not suddenly normal. “I heard a scream, then there was lightning, a light and a smoke, I managed to remove the ear plugs, then the screams grow stronger,” he said. he said, reminding people to run to him at the station. “It was chaos, everyone was just walking down the stairs, and it’s a very close exit,” he said, describing the wounded on the ground. “I went back to see if they were okay, other people attended, then there were nannies and mothers asking where their children were.”
He said that people help others “who were surprised and burned, bottled water poured into burns, severe burns, whole legs”. In the months following May’s re-election, his government proposed new proposals. Cities have invested in building barriers or bollards to make it more difficult for terrorists to attack popular public spaces. Earlier this week, London police deployed for the first time new high-tech nets linked to tungsten steel spurs that can be placed on pavements and stop marauding vehicles as heavy as a two person bus plants. “The terrorist threat now includes unsophisticated attacks, such as stabbed and bulging vehicles, where the planning cycle is much shorter than it would be,” said Rajan Basra, a researcher at the International Center. “This volatility means that authorities must intervene a lot before”. The Friday blast was the fifth terrorist attack in Britain this year, with at least three of the attackers that hit Britain this year were previously known by law enforcement officials.
Authorities acknowledged that it is impossible to keep track of all suspects, and it is believed that British security services are constantly monitoring about 500 people. According to EU officials, the number of Islamic extremists in the country could be as high as 50. Lauren Hubbard, 24, just walked on the subway at Parsons Green – the start of her morning goes to work in the financial district When she felt intense heat. Then he saw the flames leaning toward her. “I could see the fire,” he said. “I can feel the heat. At first, just panic, then just run.” Kate Llewellyn-Jones, 42, who lives next to the station, said she heard shouts and a woman ran into her yard. He had lost his shoes in a hurry. This thought struck a lot: why attack here? Parsons Green is not a tourist asset, but a green enclave.
“It feels very far from the center,” said Llewellyn-Jones. Following the recent attack of the attacks in London and Manchester, the British prime minister was criticized by the opposition to reduce the local police personnel. On Thursday, the British Home Office announced that police, using the larger authorities, have arrested a record 379 people for terrorism-related crimes in recent months, up nearly 70 percent.
