London was hit by yet another terrorist attack Friday morning when an explosive device went off in a crowded London Underground train in Southwest London.

The incident occurred at Parsons Green station on an eastbound District Line train coming from Wimbledon.

No deaths have been reported, although 22 people are in the hospital being treated for injuries mostly caused by panicked evacuation of the train.

BBC security corresponded Frank Gardner said that the device, which appeared to be a white bucket with wires leading to it, did not go off as intended. Had it exploded and released its full potential, it would have killed everyone around it and injured most of those on the carriage, Gardner said.

The Tube event is the fifth terrorist incident in the United Kingdom this year. It is the first to have not claimed any lives.
