The Latest: Foster parents own London home being searched

Meanwhile, closed-circuit television images, acquired by ITV News and broadcast Sunday, appeared to show a person walking with a Lidl shopping bag in the suburb of Sunbury before Friday morning's attack at Parsons Green station that injured 30 people in southwest London.

The two suspects detained over last week's London subway bombing are an 18-year-old refugee from Iraq and a 21-year old from Syria, both of whom were fostered by a British couple, according to a local official and media reports.

Interior minister Amber Rudd said in a televised statement yesterday that the Joint Terrorist Analysis Centre, which reviews the threat level that the United Kingdom is under, have chose to lower that level from critical to severe. The other was arrested in west London.

The Jones couple were previously honored by Queen Elizabeth II for serving as foster parents for hundreds of children, including refugees from the Middle East.

Police yesterday stepped up their investigation into the bombing of a packed London Tube train during rush hour after officers made a second arrest in their probe.

Speaking hours before the second arrest, Britain's Senior National Co-ordinator for Counter Terrorism Policing Neil Basu said the inquiry was moving at pace and that the force were "keeping an open mind" with regard to the possibility of multiple conspirators.

Stephen Griffiths, who lives across the street from Penelope and Ronald Jones, said police had visited the house several times, most recently two or three weeks ago. Sunbury is where the first arrest of a so-far unnamed man, 18, occurred.

As NPR reported on Friday, 29 people were injured at the Parsons Green subway station in Fullham when an explosion went off in a train auto.

Amber Rudd said the tweet was "pure speculation".

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the explosion.

After a bombing in May at an Ariana Grande concert in the northern city of Manchester that left 22 people dead, British authorities were infuriated by a leak of important intelligence that had been shared by them with USA officials, as is customary between the two close allies.
