The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the explosion on a London subway train Friday morning that injured 29 people.

The terrorist group's propaganda news agency, Amaq, said the attack was carried out by a "unit affiliated to the Islamic State," according to press reports.

However, experts have urged caution over the veracity of the claim, the Independent noted.

A manhunt for the perpetrator is ongoing after an improvised explosive device detonated on a London train carrying commuters from the suburbs during rush hour. The homemade bomb was sitting in a bucket.

The attack markets the fourth terrorist assault on London this year.
