British police arrest seventh man over bomb attack on London train

LONDON: British police on Monday made a new arrest in their investigation into a bomb attack on a London underground train earlier this month.
The man, 20, was detained at a house in the Welsh capital Cardiff by counter-terrorism officers, London police said. He is the seventh man to have been arrested over the attack at Parsons Green station in London on Sept. 15 which injured 30 people.
Last Friday, teenager Ahmed Hassan appeared in court charged with attempted murder over the attack. He was remanded in custody until Oct. 13.
Two other men are still being questioned by police while three others have since been released by detectives and face no further action. Searches are still ongoing at one address in Surrey, south of London, and in Cardiff.

Tesla’s Musk apologizes for his comments on British caver

  • Musk had previously defended his earlier tweets, saying that Vern Unsworth had also verbal attacked him
  • Unsworth is currently receiving legal advice on the comments Musk made

Tesla Inc. founder Elon Musk apologized to British caver Vern Unsworth for comments he made about him following the rescue of a dozen Thai schoolboys and their football coach from a cave in northern Thailand.
“His actions against me do not justify my actions against him, and for that I apologize to Mr. Unsworth and to the companies I represent as leader,” Musk said in a tweet. “The fault is mine and mine alone.”
Unsworth, who played a leading role in the rescue, said on Tuesday that he has been approached by British and American lawyers and will seek legal advice after Musk directed abuse at him on Twitter.
