Bombings in London

At least two people have been killed and hundreds injured in the wake of this morning's London subway and bus bombings.

Home Sec. Charles Clarke said the explosions occurred between Aldgate East and Liverpool Street tube stations; between Russell Square and King's Cross tube stations; at Edgware Road tube station; and on a bus at Tavistock Square.


An Islamist site has claimed responsibility for the bombs and it is suspected the al-Qaeda were involved.

Paul Woodrow, of the London Ambulance Service notes that, "Although we cannot confirm casualties - it is too early - we are dealing with large numbers of casualties."

It has been called a
"cowardly attack," "indiscriminate," and "particularly barbaric" by British officials.
