UK beefs up security following bomb attack report

LONDON – British authorities said Saturday they are stepping up security at events marking Armed Forces Day across the country amid a news report that officials foiled a bomb attack by the Islamic State group on a military parade in London.

The announcement follows attacks in Tunisia, France and Kuwait on Friday. The Sun newspaper said police foiled an attack on a London parade Saturday after an undercover reporter who obtained details on the plot alerted counter-terrorism officials. Police said security is also being beefed up for the annual gay pride parade in London Saturday.
