Islamic State claims responsibility for London train attack

The Islamic State militant group has claimed responsibility for an explosion on a Tube train at London's Parsons Green underground station which injured 29 people. The claim was made through the group's media outlet Amaq, stating that an ISIS "detachment" was responsible for the blast. UK Prime Minister Theresa May condemned the attack as "cowardly".


If confirmed, this would mark the fourth attack by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) on Great Britain this year. The first was the Westminster Bridge attack, in which 52-year-old Khalid Masood mowed down a crowd of pedestrians in a car before stabbing a police officer to death. The Manchester Arena bombing then followed, in which a suicide bomber killed 22 people, many of them children, at an Ariana Grande concert in May. The third attack came in June, when a group of terrorists drove into pedestrians in London before going on a deadly stabbing rampage through local bars and restaurants.
