An explosion on a London Tube train that sparked panic among passengers, left many burnt to death is being treated as a terrorist incident, Scotland Yard has said.
Passengers, including children, fled the District Line train after an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) detonated at Parsons Green Station.

Eyewitnesses described a ā€œfireballā€ and a ā€œwall of flameā€ through the packed London Underground train after the blast, which happened at around 8.20am on Friday, as one commuter described how his hair was left singed by the blast.

In a statement, Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said the blast was caused by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED).

An investigation is now underway led by the Metropolitan Policeā€™s Counter Terrorism Command, he said, with hundreds of detectives carrying out enquiries including examining CCTV, forensic work and speaking to eyewitnesses.
