UK lowers official terrorist threat level after 2nd arrest – Chicago Tribune

British police made progress Sunday in their frantic pursuit of suspects and evidence connected to the bomb that partially exploded on a packed London subway, leading counterterrorism officials to lower the country’s threat level because they no longer considered a fresh attack to be imminent.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd announced the downgraded terror threat level hours after London police said a second suspect was in custody and a second property was being searched in connection with Friday’s attack that injured 30 people.

Rudd cautioned that the investigation was ongoing and that Britain still faced a substantial threat even though the terror level had been reset to “severe” from “critical.”

“Severe still means that an attack is highly likely, so I would urge everybody to be vigilant but not alarmed,” she said.
