More Terror Attacks in London

Four explosions or attempts at explosions have hit three London Underground stations and a bus two weeks after the July 7 terror attacks which claimed 56 lives including the four bombers. The explosions today caused panic and confusion with four nearly simultaneous small explosions across the capital's transport system. Metropolitan Police Commissioner Ian Blair said the situation was absolutely under control. He told reporters there had been one confirmed casualty but no fatalities.

News of the incidents first came at 12.38pm (9:38pm local time). At 12.45 pm, a call came in from Warren Street. All three stations affected were evacuated and checked for chemical agents, and four Tube lines (Hammersmith & City, Victoria, Northern and Bakerloo) were closed, according to London transport officials. Meanwhile in east London, a bus driver reported a 'bang' from the top of his double-decker in Hackney, according to the bus company's spokesman. The spokesman said the windows of the bus were blown out, although this was denied by a police officer at the scene.

What kick do these people get by bringing fear, suffering and death to the lives of innocent people? No faith would ever encourage or endorse such evil acts let alone Islam. What is this world coming to?!?
