British police charged Ahmed Hassan on Friday with attempted murder and causing an explosion in connection with last week's terrorist attack at Parsons Green, an underground train station in London.

"It partially detonated, it had a large quantity of explosive and it was packed with shrapnel".

Police and forensic officers taking part in an operation in Cavendish Road, Sunbury-on-Thames, Surrey, as part of the investigation into the Parsons Green bombing.

He was arrested Saturday at the port of Dover, departure point for ferries to France.

The suspect will appear at Westminster Magistrates Court at 2pm today.

Commander Dean Haydon, head of the Met Counter Terrorism Command, said: "We anticipate that the searches will take some days to complete and may cause further disruption".

Thirty people were injured in the blast and subsequent stampede, but none of the injuries were thought to be life-threatening.

London police chief Cressida Dick said Friday that the "very dangerous" bomb was packed with shrapnel and the carnage could have been much worse.

The men, aged 21 and 48, were arrested in Hounslow, west London on Saturday and Newport, south Wales, on Wednesday. Farroukh was released Thursday and his boss is now demanding answers, according to The Telegraph. The attack was claimed by the Islamic State extremist group.

Three other males, aged 25, 30 and 17, have been detained by police under section 41 of the Terrorism Act. The man's employer said his mother suffered a heart attack after hearing of her son's arrest.
