UK Police Charge Man with London Subway Blast

LONDON (AP) — British police have charged an 18-year-old man with attempted murder and causing an explosion over last week’s bomb attack on the London subway.

The Metropolitan Police force says Ahmed Hassan is accused of planting the bomb at Parsons Green station a week ago.

He was arrested Saturday at the port of Dover, departure point for ferries to France.

Hassan is due in court later Friday. Three other men remain in custody over the attack but haven’t been charged.

Thirty people were injured when the homemade bomb partly detonated at the height of the morning rush hour. London police chief Cressida Dick says the bomb was packed with shrapnel and the carnage could have been much worse.
