LONDON — United Kingdom police say they've now arrested seven people in connection with the London train bombing on Sept. 15, Reuters reports. British police recently arrested a 20-year-old man at a house in the Welsh capital city of Cardiff.

Police say two people have been released without charges, while three remain in custody.

Another suspect, Ahmed Hassan, 18, has been charged with attempted murder and causing an explosion, USA Today reports. Police say Hassan made the bomb using materials he purchased online. Police say he then left the bomb on a central London-bound train and got off the train one station prior to its explosion.

The incident happened on a District Line train bound for central London at Parsons Green station in the west of London where the District Line operates above ground. Thirty people were injured in the incident.
