The Fulham Broadway station on London’s tube network has been reopened after its evacuation over a “security alert” on Saturday, Transport for London (TfL) said.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Transport for London wrote on Twitter that the trains are “stopping as normal” at the station.
The Fulham Broadway was closed and evacuated earlier in the day over a “security alert.” Trains were running without stopping at the station.
Also on Saturday, police arrested an 18-year-old man in relation to the bombing at London’s Parsons Green tube station, which is next to Fulham Broadway.
An explosion went off in a carriage at Parsons Green on Friday, leaving 29 people wounded. London police said they regarded the blast as a terrorist attack. Daesh (IS, banned in Russia) reportedly claimed responsibility for the blast. Following the incident, UK Prime Minister Theresa May raised the national threat level to “critical.”
The London bombing is the third terrorist attack in the British capital thus far in 2017. In June, a trio of Daesh-associated Islamic extremists conducted a van-ramming attack on London bridge, killing eight before being shot dead by police.
