Third arrest over Parsons Green Tube terror attack



A third man has been arrested in connection with the Parsons Green terror attack that left 30 people injured.

The 25-year-old was held in a counter-terrorism raid in Newport, south Wales, shortly after 7pm on Tuesday.
 
 
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said a building in the city was also being searched.


Two other men, aged 18 and 21, are still in custody in connection with Friday's bomb attack on a London Underground train at the southwest London station.


Commander Dean Haydon, head of the Counter Terrorism Command, said: "This continues to be a fast-moving investigation. A significant amount of activity has taken place since the attack on Friday.


"We now have three men in custody and searches are continuing at four addresses. Detectives are carrying out extensive inquiries to determine the full facts behind the attack.


"We anticipate that the searches will take some days to complete and may cause further disruption.


However it is important that we continue with these searches and I'd like to thank all those affected for their support, patience and co-operation."
