British PM Theresa May has raised the country’s threat level, from critical, to severe, after an explosive went off in a subway train in London. PM May said in an official statement that armed police and soldiers will be seen patrolling the streets within the next few days. “For this period, military personnel will replace police officers on guard duties at certain protected sites that are not accessible to the public,” she said. The enhanced threat level comes just hours after the Islamic State took responsibility for “detonating an IED on a tube train” this morning.
