‘Sig­nif­i­cant’ ar­rest in sub­way bomb­ing

Toronto Star - - NEWS -

Po­lice made an ap­par­ent break­through Saturday in the sub­way bomb­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion with what they called a “very sig­nif­i­cant” ar­rest, but the coun­try re­mained on a “crit­i­cal” alert.

Po­lice ar­rested an 18-year-old man in the port of Dover — the main ferry link to France — and then launched a mas­sive armed search in a Lon­don sub­urb in which they evac­u­ated res­i­dents and im­posed a no-fly zone above the prop­erty be­ing searched.

Po­lice did not say that they had nabbed the man be­lieved to have planted the bomb that par­tially ex­ploded on a crowded Lon­don sub­way train Friday morn­ing.
