British police on Friday charged an 18-year-old man with attempted murder and causing an explosion over last week's bomb attack on the London subway.
The Metropolitan Police force said Ahmed Hassan will appear in court later, accused of planting the bomb at Parsons Green station a week ago.
Hassan is accused of attempting to "murder persons traveling on a District Line train" on Sept. 15, and of using a chemical compound known as TATP to cause an explosion likely to endanger life, police said.

Uber's license to operate in London won't be renewed because its practices endanger public safety and security, the local regulator said Friday, in a blow to a company already facing big questions over its corporate culture.
Transport for London says the company, whose app is used by 3.5 million passengers and 40,000 drivers in London, isn't "fit and proper" to hold a license to operate a private-hire vehicle service.
"TfL considers that Uber's approach and conduct demonstrate a lack of corporate responsibility in relation to a number of issues which have potential public safety and security implications," the regulator said in a statement.

Abdul Hamid has the wide-open smile of a child and the eyes of an adult. By age 12, the Rohingya Muslim boy has seen more than anyone should have to see in a lifetime.
He saw his father shot by "Burma soldiers," he volunteers in a calm yet deeply unsettling tone, lifting two fingers of his right hand to illustrate the act. When his father didn't die right away, he saw the soldiers slash his throat.
His mother fled their home in Myanmar with Hamid and four younger siblings. They hid in forests for days and then walked for two days to reach the safety of Bangladesh.

Cheap solar panels imported from China and other countries have led to a boom in the U.S. solar industry, where rooftop and other installations have surged 10-fold since 2011.
But two U.S. solar manufacturers say the flood of imports has led one to bankruptcy and forced the other to lay off three-quarters of its workforce.
The International Trade Commission is set to decide Friday whether the imports, primarily from Asia, are causing "serious injury" to the companies. If so, the commission will recommend this fall whether the Trump administration should impose tariffs that could double the price of solar panels from abroad.

Scott Dekraai, the worst mass killer in Orange County's history, is scheduled to be sentenced Friday to life in prison without the possibility of parole for gunning down eight people at a Southern California beauty salon where his ex-wife worked.
The case has rocked the criminal system in Orange County amid allegations that Dekraai was the victim of abuse of the jailhouse informant program, but Friday morning's sentencing could turn out to be the last word on the case.
The widower of one of Dekraai's eight murder victims said the California attorney general's office told him there will be no appeal of a ruling eliminating the death penalty as a punishment for the defendant.
A special counsel is overseeing the federal investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, which is also examining whether anyone in President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with the Russians.
Here's a look at some of the Americans whose names come up often in connection with the investigation.
The eye of Hurricane Maria was nearing the Turks and Caicos early Friday as Puerto Rico was still reeling from the storm's devastation.
As of 5 a.m. Friday, Maria was still a Category 3 storm with maximum sustained winds of 125 mph (205 kph), sitting 35 miles (55 km) east-northeast of Grand Turk Island and moving northwest at 7 mph (11 kph).

Hour after excruciating hour, Mexicans were transfixed by dramatic efforts to reach a young girl thought buried in the rubble of a school destroyed by a magnitude 7.1 earthquake. She reportedly wiggled her fingers, told rescuers her name and said there were others trapped near her. Rescue workers called for tubes, pipes and other tools to reach her.
But she never existed, Mexican navy officials now say.
Facebook is slowly acknowledging the outsized — if unintended — role it played in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.
Bowing to pressure from lawmakers and the public, the company said it will provide the contents of 3,000 ads bought by a Russian agency to congressional investigators, while also pledging to make political advertising on its platform more "transparent."
What Donald Trump's presidency will look like is unclear to many observers. View gallery »

It's Trump versus Trumpland.
President Donald Trump's political muscles are getting a workout in a Republican runoff election in Alabama that has an awkward dynamic: He's campaigning for the establishment-backed incumbent over an upstart beloved by many of his own most ardent supporters, including his former chief strategist Steve Bannon.
Motivated by personal loyalty and a sense that the race is newly competitive, Trump heads to Huntsville, Alabama, on Friday to campaign for Sen. Luther Strange, appointed in February to temporarily fill the seat that opened up when Jeff Sessions became attorney general. The winner of next Tuesday's runoff will be the GOP candidate in a December election to serve out the rest of Sessions' term, ending in January 2021.

Lawyers for Aaron Hernandez are suing the NFL and the New England Patriots over his death after a brain study showed the former football star suffered from a "severe case" of the degenerative brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy.
"Not only were the results positive, but we're told it was the most severe case they had ever seen for someone of Aaron's age," Hernandez's lawyer Jose Baez said in a news conference Thursday at his office.
The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Boston on behalf of Hernandez's 4-year-old daughter. It claims the team and the league deprived Avielle Hernandez of the companionship of her father.
