BROADCAST AND DIGITAL RESTRICTIONS~** Broadcasters: NONE Digital: NONE~** ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Friday (September 15) that Britain remained on high alert after a home-made bomb exploded on a packed rush-hour commuter train, injuring 22 people. Hours after the incident, U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted: "Another attack in London by a loser terrorist. These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!" In response to his tweet, May said: "I never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation". Britain and the United States have long boasted of their "special relationship", close ties that were strained earlier this year when the U.S. leaked information on an investigation into a bomber who killed 22 at a Manchester pop concert.
