LON­DON (Dis­patches) - Bri­tish po­lice ar­rested an 18-year-old man in the south­ern port of Dover on Satur­day in a “sig­nif­i­cant” de­vel­op­ment in the hunt for the peo­ple be­hind a Lon­don com­muter train bomb­ing that in­jured 30 peo­ple a day ear­lier. Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May put Bri­tain on the high­est se­cu­rity level of “crit­i­cal” late on Fri­day, mean­ing an at­tack may be im­mi­nent, and sol­diers and armed po­lice de­ployed to se­cure strate­gic sites and hunt down the per­pe­tra­tors. The home-made bomb shot flames through a packed com­muter train dur­ing the Fri­day morn­ing rush hour in west Lon­don but ap­par­ently failed to det­o­nate fully.
