Bomb blast at London Tower Hill Metro Station


LONDON - An explosion has hit London Tower Hill Metro Station injuring at least five people.

The explosion led to the closure of the station following which the emergency officials started the rescue operation.

A fire alert was also issued. Officers have not yet determined whether the incident is terror-related. Some witnesses are suggesting it may have been a faulty battery pack.

This is the second incident of an explosion during the same month.

Earlier, on September 16, a home-made bomb on a packed rush-hour commuter train in London engulfed a carriage in flames and injured 29 people but apparently failed to fully explode, in Britain’s fifth major terrorism incident this year.
