An explosion on an underground train at a busy station in southwest London today left several commuters injured in what the Scotland Yard described as a "terrorist incident".

The incident occurred during rush hour on a District Line Tube train as it pulled into Parsons Green station.

As soon as the news of London blast attack came, people started sharing messages on micro-blogging site Twitter saying that they stand united against terrorism.

Prime Minister Theresa May tweeted: "My thoughts are with those injured at Parsons Green and emergency services who are responding bravely to this terrorist incident."

President Donald Trump says the United States must be "proactive" and "nasty" against the Islamic State group. "We have made more progress in the last nine months against ISIS than the Obama Administration has made in 8 years." He adds: "Must be proactive & nasty!"

Meanwhile, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has appealed for calm, saying the city "will never be intimidated or defeated by terrorism".
