London subway suspects fostered by British couple

London subway suspects fostered by British couple

The 21-year-old was arrested in west London around 11:30 p.m. Saturday under the Terrorism Act, the Metropolitan Police Service said in a statement.

British officials have held an emergency Cabinet meeting to discuss the terror threat facing the country after a London subway blast injured more than two dozen people. He was taken to a south London police station, where he remains in custody.

Police said earlier Sunday that a 21-year-old man, who has not been identified, was detained late Saturday in Hounslow, on the western rim of the capital.

The UK terror threat level has been lowered to severe after being raised to critical, its highest level, following Friday's attack on a London train station.

"For strong investigative reasons, we will not give any more details on the man we arrested at this stage", Deputy Assistant Police Commissioner Neil Basu said earlier.

Providing detectives make evidential progress, both suspects could be held for up to a fortnight before they have to be charged or released.

Asked if he was known to authorities, a spokesman for London's Metropolitan Police said: "I don't believe he was", Agence France-Presse reported.

Police said on Sunday they were searching a residential property in Stanwell, Surrey, close to the perimeter of London's Heathrow Airport, in connection with the Hounslow arrest. An address in Newport is being searched.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan hailed Saturday morning's arrest.

On Friday morning, a bomb attack committed in london underground at Parsons Green, which is claimed by organization, jihadist islamic State (EI), has made a thirty wounded. "The police investigation is ongoing and there will still be significant activity today and over the days ahead".

Stephen Griffiths, who lives across the street, said police had visited the house several times, most recently two or three weeks ago.

The PSNI said it had stepped up patrols in Northern Ireland, "particularly around iconic sites, transport networks, and where large numbers of people congregate", in response to the London attack.

He added: "We are getting a greater understanding of the preparation of the device".

After Friday's plot and the ensuing stampede the blast caused at the station, all but one of those injured has now left hospital.

A man in a red hat - carrying a Lidl bag - was also captured by cameras near the Jones's home about 90 minutes before the attack. It just keeps going and going, and we have to be very smart, we have to be very, very tough.

The "severe" level means another attack is highly likely but the higher "critical" level means an attack may be imminent.

She said she accepted that there had been a cut of 24,000 to police numbers during the previous Conservative government but said that crime had fallen during that period.

"Because we have to remember that so much of these attacks have global bases, we have to be able to work privately with secure lines, with the Americans, with the Five Eyes community and with our European friends".
