London subway terrorism explosion
 London police began a manhunt after an explosion Friday aboard a crowded London subway car in what police say is a terror-related attack.

The explosion occurred as a train left Parsons Green station in southwest London during the morning rush hour.

The attack is being investigated as a terrorist-related incident, London Metropolitan Police said. It added on its Facebook page that London Ambulance reported 18 people were hospitalized.

A major manhunt for the bomber was launched, police said, requesting information from any witnesses or other sources. Police have not made any arrests and the attacker remains at large.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan confirmed a manhunt is underway but did not specify if a particular suspect is sought.

Passengers on the train said a wall of fire erupted aboard one car.

Several passengers were burned and dozens hurried to leave the train and get out of harm's way. At least 22 people were injured, mostly with burns, but none seriously.
