"It is not something we would comment on", a spokeswoman said.

Police said the explosion was a terrorist attack, the fifth in Britain this year.

She dismissed the speculative tweet from Trump that claimed Scotland Yard had the so-called "bucket bomber" in terror attack on a London Underground train in their "sights".

On Twitter, US President Donald Trump condemned the terror attack in West London that occurred on Friday morning.

"The bombing on a metro in London was carried out by a detachment of the Islamic State" group, it said in a statement published by its Amaq propaganda agency.

"Nevertheless, given the current high terror threat level and the potential for attacks against multiple targets, including against the Jewish community, we urge everybody to be vigilant, to report anything suspicious and to follow all security protocols and instructions if you are visiting a Jewish location".

The president said he planned to call British Prime Minister Theresa May "right now".

"I don't think it's helpful for anyone to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation", May told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos in an interview that will air on "This Week" Sunday.

Time and again terrorists engage in monstrous acts with the wrong notion that they can throttle social harmony and break the unity of peace-loving people.

"I spoke with a wonderful woman, British Prime Minster Theresa May, this morning and relayed America's deepest sympathy as well as our absolute commitment to eradicate the terrorists from our planet", Trump said.

Daesh terrorist group claimed the London subway explosion late Friday.

British authorities say they have foiled 19 plots since the middle of 2013, six of them since the van and knife attack on Westminster Bridge and Parliament in March, which killed five people.

And we have to be very smart and we have to be very, very tough, which perhaps we're not almost tough enough.

The Supreme Court granted Tuesday a Trump administration request to continue to bar most refugees under its travel ban.

Sally Faulding, a 51-year-old teacher, said: "People were falling over each other".

On September 7 a federal court in San Francisco, the liberal-leaning 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, rejected the Trump administration's limited view of who is allowed into the United States under the travel ban.
