Bomb blast in London underground train leaves several injured

London witnessed yet another terror attack as a home-made bomb exploded in an underground train on Friday leaving 29 people injured with no initial reports of any casualties.

Some of the passengers in the London train blast had suffered facial burns in what was an attack on a packed rush-hour eastbound District line train which was about to leave the Parsons Green Tube station in southwest London.

Reports are that the bomb which was an improvised device failed to explode completely otherwise could have caused much more carnage.

The Friday London train blast is already the fifth major terror incident in the UK in 2017 even as Prime Minister Theresa May is struggling to wipe out terrorism in the country.

Passengers traveling to London fled in fear and shock following the blast at around 8:20 AM BST.

Reports are that the Parsons Green bomber had placed an improvised explosive device concealed in a white plastic bucket which was placed in a shopping bag. After the blast, the shopping bag was noticed with wires coming out of it along with a black towel to hint that it was the object that had triggered the London train bomb blast.

The ISIS has taken responsibility of the bomb blast in the London underground train.
