London news: British police announced on the 15th local time that the car bombing in Liverpool on the 14th was a terrorist attack.
The British government announced on the 15th that the alert level for domestic terrorist attacks has been raised to the second highest “serious” level. The BBC reported that this means that there is a high probability of a terrorist attack anywhere in the UK.
At around 11 o’clock on the 14th local time, a taxi exploded outside the Liverpool Women’s Hospital, killing a 32-year-old man and injuring one person in the car. The injured was a taxi driver. He was taken to the hospital for treatment. He is now in no danger to his life.
The police arrested 4 men aged 20 to 29 under the anti-terrorism law, but they have since been released by the police. At present, the hospital said that the security forces inside and outside the hospital have been strengthened, but it is recommended that people do not drive to the Liverpool Women’s Hospital.
According to preliminary investigations, the police suspected that the deceased had made and carried an improvised explosive device on the vehicle. When the vehicle reached the drop-off area outside the hospital, the explosive device was detonated in the vehicle. The police searched the residence of the deceased and made major discoveries, saying that they had initially grasped the method of making improvised explosive devices before the deceased. At the same time, the police also called on the public to provide the police with information related to the deceased in a timely manner.
According to the BBC, the deceased was a Syrian who had arrived in the UK as a refugee.
