London was shaken by a terror attack Friday, when a bomb exploded on the London Underground, wounding at least 29 people. It was the fifth terrorist attack to take place in Britain this year. Police arrested a man in connection to the incident and raided a home in Sunbury-on-Thames. The investigation is ongoing and more details will likely follow in the days to come.

The end of the week was marked by another major event when North Korea fired a ballistic missile that passed over Japan. Escalating already heightened tensions, the move earned Pyongyang widespread condemnation from the UN, Japan, South Korea, the U.S. and other world leaders.

Earlier in the week, eight elderly patients lost their lives due to excessive heat at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills in Florida, after Hurricane Irma caused power outages in the state.

On the political front, President Trump claimed a bipartisan deal involving DACA, tax reform and border security, was close.
