LONDON • British police have arrested a 21-year-old man over a "bucket bomb" attack on a London commuter train last week, as the country lowered its terrorism threat level from its highest setting.

The arrest yesterday in Hounslow, on the western rim of the capital, is the second made in two days after police took into custody an 18-year-old youth in the ferry departure lounge of a port. The two suspects were not identified.
