“It remains possible that the perpetrator may attempt to place further devices.”
This is an odd locution, since the Muslim who planted them was arrested. Either he has already been released and went back to placing bombs on the London subway, which is possible given the abject state of Dhimmi Britannia, or they mean that he already may have planted other bombs before he was arrested.
“He was definitely Asian…”
In British politically correct newspeak, this means that he was Muslim.
“Police uncover London Underground bomb plot: teenage suspect arrested after ‘viable improvised explosive device’ found on tube train,” by Ben Farmer and Nicola Harley, Telegraph, October 22, 2016:
A terror plot to target the London Underground has been foiled after police found what they suspect to be a viable bomb on a tube train, planted by a terrorist planning further attacks.
A 19-year-old man was tasered and arrested by armed counter-terrorism officers on Friday, a day after the suspect device was found on board a train near the O2 centre.
On Friday it emerged that security officials had contacted the Ministry of Defence after the find, to warn serving military personnel, and the threat level for transport in London had been raised to severe to reflect that an attack was highly likely.
In a note the MoD had told personnel: “It remains possible that the perpetrator may attempt to place further devices.”
British Transport Police confirmed that they had increased security arrangements because of the discovery and would be stepping up patrols.
The discovery of the suspect device and the subsequent arrest came 11 years after the 7/7 bombings when the London transport network was targeted in a terror attack that killed 52 passengers.

Details of the suspected plot emerged in the memo sent to serving military personnel, forwarding a warning from the security agency that monitors terror threat levels.
The memo said the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre “has raised the threat level for transport in London to severe: an attack is highly likely”.
It said: “This increase is in response to the discovery of a suspected viable improvised explosive device (IED) on a London Underground train yesterday.
“It is unknown who placed the device and what their motivation was. Therefore it remains possible that the perpetrator may attempt to place further devices. The threat level will continue to be reviewed as further information is received.”
It is understood the threat level for transport outside London remains unchanged at moderate.
The Home Office declined to comment on the threat level and other bodies including Transport for London and Network Rail also refused to comment.
The teenage terror suspect was later arrested outside London Metropolitan University on Holloway Road, around 10 miles from where the suspected bomb was discovered in north Greenwich.
Witnesses described the young man being dragged to the ground by plain-clothed masked officers carrying machine guns.
One onlooker said the police appeared to be waiting for the suspect.
The suspect, described as Asian in appearance with black hair, was tasered in the back as he walked along.
A shop worker who did not wish to be named said: “He was just walking down the street doing his business.
“He was just a normal guy walking along slowly.
“He was definitely Asian and he definitely had black hair and I think he was in his 20s.
“Officers came from behind him and tasered him.
“They jumped on him. He was on the floor.
“They checked him. They put him in a car and took him away.
“I saw the whole thing from where I work.”…
