British Prime Minister Theresa May criticized U.S. President Donald Trump’s response to the attack that took place at a London Underground Station. Veuer’s Sam Berman has the full story.
British police made a second arrest late Saturday in connection with a subway blast the day before in London, authorities said.
Earlier on Saturday, police had announced a “significant” arrest in the case after taking a teenager in custody in the port city of Dover.
The second man, 21, was arrested 10 minutes before midnight by detectives from the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command unit in the London suburb of Hounslow.
He was arrested under the Terrorism Act and taken to a south London police station and held, Metropolitan Police said in a release out of its Scotland Yard headquarters.
Scotland Yard had earlier said the first arrest, by Kent police, would lead to “more activity” by authorities, indicating they may have leads on additional suspects in Friday’s blast, which injured more than two dozen people.
Closed-circuit images collected after the incident purportedly show the person suspected of planting the device, the BBC reports.
The teenager, arrested in the port city on the English Channel, was also being questioned under the Terrorism Act. Dover is a major ferry port for travel between Britain and France.
The suspect, who was being returned to London for questioning, has not yet been charged or publicly identified, authorities said.
“We have made a significant arrest in our investigation this morning,” Deputy Assistant Police Commissioner Neil Basu said. He warned that the investigation was continuing and that the terrorist threat level remains at “critical,” meaning a government task force that includes the security services believes another attack is imminent.

Prime Minister Theresa May said raising the threat level Friday to the highest point was a “proportionate and sensible step.” Police called on the public to “remain vigilant.”
