    Soldiers have been deployed across the UK to free up the 1,000 policemen hunting for the perpetrators of a terrorist attack at Parsons Green underground station in London, which injured 29. The national threat level has been raised to maximum.

    UK Prime Minister Theresa May said military personnel would take over guard duty at certain “protected sites,” freeing up police to be deployed on the transportation network and on streets across the country.

    “For this period, military personnel will replace police officers on guard duties at certain protected sites,” May said in a televised statement.

    “The public will see more armed police on the transport network and on our streets providing extra protection. This is a proportionate and sensible step which will provide extra reassurance and protection while the investigation progresses,” she added.

    No arrests have been made so far, but counter-terrorism police chief Mark Rowley said the investigation was making “really good progress.”

    “We’re chasing down suspects,” he told reporters, as cited by AFP.

    “Somebody has planted this improvised explosive device on the Tube. We have to be open-minded at this stage about him and potential associates.”

    Metropolitan Police said earlier on Friday that an improvised explosive device [IED] went off in an underground carriage. They also said the IED did not fully detonate.
