It’s always one thing after another. The world is waking up to utter chaos this morning, as news of another possible terror attack dominates the morning news headlines.

The UK is the victim yet again, this time of an explosion at the London Tube’s Parsons Green Tube station during Friday morning rush hour. According to CNBC News, authorities said the explosion is being investigated as a possible terror attack.

The report goes on to note that 22 people were taken to the hospital for medical treatment, according to the London Ambulance service. Injuries weren’t life-threatening, paramedics said.

The London Ambulance service wrote in an update on Twitter:

‘We were called at 8:20am today, with the first ambulance crew arriving within 5 minutes. We have sent a number of resources to the scene including ambulance crews, officers and our Hazardous Area Response Team.’

‘We are working closely with our colleagues from the Metropolitan Police, British Transport Police and London Fire Brigade at the scene; ensuring patients received the medical help they need as quickly as possible.’

‘As we are very busy dealing with this incident, we would ask the public to only call us in a genuine emergency.’

UK Prime Minister Theresa May tweeted her condolences, also dubbing it a terrorist incident:

‘PM: My thoughts are with those inured at Parsons Green and emergency services who are responding bravely to this terrorist incident.’

London Mayor Sadiq Khan also tweeted:

‘Our city utterly condemns the hideous individuals who attempt to use terror to harm us and destroy our way of life. As London has proven again and again, we will never be intimidated or defeated by terrorism.’

President Trump also, of course, took to Twitter to respond to the news.

‘Another attack in London by a loser terrorist. These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!’

In true Trump fashion, he went on to offer up his advice:

‘Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner. The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!’
