Re: London Terrorist Attack
this one too. :-P
Blasts hit London Underground, buses
Reuters | July 7, 2005
The military-industrial complex has the motive in this latest attrocity. Every major western government, including the British, has been caught red-handed carrying out bombings against their own people and blaming it on external enemies. It is mainstream news in Spain that the government was involved in the 3/11 bombing. The London 7/7 bombings are nothing different. Government ghouls are now all over television spreading the fear to encourage the people to submit to the war on terror.
Emergency teams have responded to the blasts
Explosions have rocked London, killing at least two and wounding scores in what Prime Minister Tony Blair said was an apparent terrorist attack coinciding with a meeting of Group of Eight leaders in Scotland.
Witnesses on Thursday saw the top was ripped off a double-decker bus near Russell Square close to King's Cross train terminal and the twisted wreckage of another in Tavistock Square nearby.
Several underground railway stations were also hit.
Two people were killed in the rush-hour explosion at Aldgate East underground station, police said.
"[We can] confirm there were two fatalities at Aldgate East
station this morning," a police spokeswoman said.
"It is reasonably clear that there have been a series of terrorist attacks in London," Blair said at the summit. He added that he would return to London in the "next couple of hours".
A doctor at Aldgate underground station in the east of the financial centre of the city said at least 90 people were wounded at that location.
Transit shut down
The entire underground system was shut down and major thoroughfares were blocked off by police and ambulance services.
London's police chief Ian Blair said there were indications of explosives at one of the blast sites.
"We are aware that one of the sites certainly does contain indications of explosives," he told Sky Television. "We are
concerned that this is a coordinated attack."
There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
Covered in blood
People were seen streaming out of one underground station covered with blood and soot. Passengers were evacuated from stations across the capital, many in shock and with their clothes ripped to shreds, witnesses said.
Police said many of the city's underground stations were affected.
Passengers were evacuated from
Initially, rail officials blamed the explosions on a power surge.
"It is too early to state what has happened," a London police spokesman said. "I cannot comment on reports of bombs, but we have had multi-reports of explosions around London."
Another police spokesman said: "There have been some casualties and this has been declared a major incident."
Signs of attack
Security experts said the incidents bore all the hallmarks of an al-Qaida attack.
"If what we are looking at is a simultaneous bombing - and it does look like that - it would very certainly fit the classic al-Qaida methodology," said Shane Brighton, intelligence expert at the Royal United Services Institute for Defence.
Financial markets took fright, with stocks diving and demand for government bonds and safe-haven currencies soaring.
The first reports of blasts centred on the city's underground railway system.
Aldgate East station
Emergency services rushed to Aldgate East at 8.59am (0759 GMT).
"There were people streaming out of Aldgate station covered in blood," said witness Kate Heywood, 27, on her way to work.
A Reuters correspondent at Oxford Circus, at the heart of the system, heard an announcement over the public-address system saying: "A power outage has occurred London-wide. All train services are suspended."
Police sealed off large areas around other underground and mainline railway stations. Firefighters donned chemical protection suits before rushing into stations.
Half a dozen people with soot-blackened faces and dishevelled clothes sat on the floor at Russell Square station or stood in shock as police cordoned off the area and ambulance crews raced in, one witness said.
So pardon me while I burst into flames.
I\'ve had enough of the world and it\'s people\'s mindless games.
So pardon me while I burn, and rise above the flame. Pardon me, pardon me, I\'ll never be the same. -Brandon Boyd
