LONDON (AP) — British officials have raised the country’s terrorism threat level to “critical” - meaning another attack is expected shortly.

Prime Minister Theresa May acted on the recommendation of the Joint Terrorism Analysis Center after the subway train bombing attack Friday at the Parsons Green station in southwest London. The analysis includes security services, police and government agencies.

The threat was raised from “severe” to “critical” — its highest possible level.

May said military troops would augment the police presence in a “proportionate and sensible step.”
