British police on Friday charged an 18-year-old man with attempted murder following the bombing of a London Underground train last week that injured 20 people.
The man, Ahmed Hassan, reported to be from Iraq, was arrested in the port of Dover -- a popular departure point for ferries to France. He also was charged with the use of an explosive, police said.
Following Hassan's arrest, police searched the suburban home of a couple that fostered refugee children, where he had been living.
Iran: 'We Will Strengthen Our Missile Capabilities'
Iran will strengthen its missile capabilities and will not seek any country's permission, President Hassan Rouhani said Friday in a snub to demands from U.S. President Donald Trump.

The Tasnim news agency, which quoted the head of the Revolutionary Guards' aerospace division, Amirali Hajizadeh, gave few other details of the missile.
