Four explosions in London transit system kill double digits


Three explosions in the Tube and one that ripped apart a double decker bus killed an unknown number of people today and shut down the entire transit system in London. Blair spoke and blamed terrorists for timing the attacks to the G-8 summit opening in Scotland.


A group calling itself "The Secret Organization of al-Qaida in Europe" claimed responsibility, supposedly. As expected, in the chaos, many of the early reports are unconfirmed. I was extremely worried when I read that Marylebone was among the Tube stations closed in the aftermath of the explosions, but as soon as I e-mailed Peter he e-mailed me back saying he was okay.
