Default london bombings?

sketchy news all over the tv about bombs in london...

a bus has definetly been destroyed by a bomb.

the entire london underground network has been closed after several explosions at different stations.

unconfirmed reports that more buses have been bombed...

and reports of suspect packages found at different locations...

yahoo news is covering it all... http://uk.news.yahoo.com/

it saying there have been fatalities, but not extensive.

all this happening as the g8 summit begins in gleneagles, and the day after london is awarded the 2012 olympics.

update> all bus services now shut down in central london as well.
phone networks jammed
a goverment source has mentioned 20 dead

That’s so terrible, and so so frightening …
It could so be the El Quieda, like the other thread what Maurice suggested..
I thought at first it could have something to do with London getting the Olympics, who know’s tho ?
Tho what a tragedy specially after London winning the vote for the Olympics...

Last I heard(im flicking the news on every channel in Aust)
There are 90 Casualties and they dont know how many killed... or else i missed the number...
It so upsetting watching it on the news
People are so bloody heartless, cruel cruel world...or should i say people..

This is not Al Qaeda MO. They inflict maximum casualities... like with the march 11th attacks in Spain. They say two have been killed.. but maybe that has changed.

This is heartless, and deeply concerning...

Edit: on second thought, i dont know at all. i don't know who this is.

Reports have just come in from ITV that a European Al Qaeda group has just claimed responsibility.

Apparently theres a whole commotion going on about it

It probably a terrorist attack threatening the G8 meeting of the worlds supposedly '8 greatest and richest' people

What has the world come to today?

Life is so unfair for some people

The IRA have been inactive for years. They wouldnt do a thing like this. I think its Al-queada personally...

IDK. Those two poeple that died are bad enough but if Bin Laden had anything to do with it more then 2 would of died. ANd I doubt its G8 protesters. I'm sure teh G8 Protesters most they would do no worse then throwing rocks at cops. So maybe its some new group? Or a internal terriost group that we haven't heard about.

heh, we just post'd at the same time. Rumor says that a "secret" branch of Al Quada has claimed responsibility.

Just because Al Queda managed to pull off 9/11 doesn't mean they can do something that catastrophic so easily again. It took then 20 years just to make an attack that large. They are a bunch of stupid and violent people. We are smarter.

I want a full investigation into this. It is dangerous to make premature assumptions.

Yes Mr. President sir. All our agents are on it

I'm not making any premature assumptions. When I get back from class, I'll let you know the details.

Don't mock me. I was just stating my opinion. I don't think it is right you make assumptions.
