ISIS terrorists and their supporters are rejoicing at hearing the news of the Parsons Green tube explosion.
22 people were taken to four hospitals across London, most were mainly taken to Chelsea and Westminster hospital.
Experts have said the bomb is basic and unsophisticated, the bomb was in a white bucket placed inside a Lidl freezer bag, with wires that look like Christmas fairy lights, these can easily be used as fuse or detonator.
