Il premier britannico Theresa May ha convocato una riunione di emergenza del Comitato Cobra dopo l’esplosione avvenuta stamattina in una stazione della metropolitana a Londra. Secondo la Polizia si è trattato di un atto terroristico. Il Cobra è un organismo a cui partecipano membri del governo, servizi di emergenza e rappresentanti dell’intelligence.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May will hold a meeting of the COBRA emergency committee at 1 p.m. (12:00 GMT) in connection with Friday's terrorist attack in the London tube, the Prime Minister's office spokesperson told Sputnik. "The PM will chair a Cobra meeting at 1 pm," the spokesperson said. Earlier in the day, media reported about an explosion at the Parsons Green underground station causing tube passengers' facial burns. London's police said they regarded the blast as a "terrorist incident." The COBRA committee consists of members of the government, emergency services and intelligence services. It usually meets in the Cabinet Office Briefing Rooms, most commonly in Briefing Room A.
