Po­lice make ‘sig­nif­i­cant’ ar­rest in Lon­don sub­way blast

Jamaica Gleaner - - NEWS -

LON­DON (AP): BRI­TISH PO­LICE made a “sig­nif­i­cant” ar­rest yes­ter­day in the man­hunt for sus­pects a day after the Lon­don sub­way was hit by a par­tially ex­ploded bomb and launched a heav­ily armed search of a home south­west of Lon­don.

The fast-mov­ing en­quiry into the sub­way blast that wounded 29 peo­ple has shifted to Sun­bury, on the out­skirts of the Bri­tish cap­i­tal, where neigh­bours were evac­u­ated amid the po­lice op­er­a­tion as a pre­cau­tion.

A no-fly zone was es­tab­lished over the area to keep out small planes and drones as po­lice moved in and po­lice cor­dons were put in place to keep the pub­lic well away.

No de­tails about the po­lice search were re­leased, but it came after the ar­rest of an 18year-old man who is be­ing held un­der the Ter­ror­ism Act. The man was ar­rested yes­ter­day morn­ing by Kent po­lice in the port of Dover on the English Chan­nel.

A po­lice foren­sic of­fi­cer stands be­side the train which was the tar­get of a ter­ror­ist at­tack in Lon­don last Fri­day.
