U.K. police charge 18-year-old with attempted murder in London transit bombing

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 said 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 but haven’t been charged.

Thirty people were hurt 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
