District line used to be my regular commuting tube. So far looks like very low tech and somewhat incompetent effort. Let's hope is not part of a multiple event with devices that are more lethal elsewhere today.

Same thing we've seen here,

as the basic ingredients for making these bombs are harder to come by in industrial quantities, they resort to buying small consumer amounts and cobble them together which in turn makes for less effective bombs.

Not sure I get you there ?

It's usually a good idea to put as much distance between yourself and a bomb as possible...

They were looking at the burning bucket inside the subway car (instead of fleeing).

It appears the the device 'Flashed' instead of exploding with full force. Producing more burns rather that blast and fragmentation wounds.

It appears the police have identified the terrorist but are not releasing details. However Trump has made a statement to the effect it was a Muslim known to the security services and indeed on a watchlist.

Quote:
British Prime Minister Theresa May has rebuked US President Donald Trump for claiming suspects in Friday's London train blast were known to police.
"I never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation," she said.
Quote:
London police said of the US president's remarks that "any speculation is unhelpful".
mmm!

Given that the single staircase from the elevated platform was choked with people how would you suggest that they did that?
