Britain Vehicle Blast: A car exploded outside a women’s hospital in the UK city of Liverpool on Sunday, killing one person. The police declared it a terrorist incident on Monday. At the same time, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced today that Britain’s threat of a terrorist attack will be upgraded to the ‘severe’ category. Let us tell you that in February, Britain’s threat of a terrorist attack was downgraded from severe to strong, which means that the attack is not likely to be serious, but likely.
At the same time, the motive behind the blast in the car on Sunday is yet to be ascertained. The Anti-Terrorism Police has taken over the investigation of the case and the intelligence agency ‘MI5’ is also looking into the matter. The police had earlier arrested three suspects in this regard. Russ Jackson, chief of counter-terrorism police North West, said a fourth suspect had also been arrested.
