I have some info about the number dead. I won't say where I'm getting it from, as it would get this person in deep shit. I hope you will trust what I say here. I obviously wouldn't lie about something this major.

This person knows for certain that 50 were killed on the bus, and so far 30 have been killed at stations.



God, be with everyone.

I'm just sitting here in stunned shock.

I can't believe this happened.

I've just got word from some pals in London and thank God they are alright.


My thoughts and prayers are with the people in London.

I saw the same figure on the BBC's website.

I hate how these things always unfold to be worse than initial reports too.

Seeing the wreckage, I don't think anyone could've survived this bus blast.

Terrible news.

I don't know if it was something else, but when I went to that last site with the article,

I my antivirus picked up something. I don't think it has anything to do with the sit,e but just figured I'd say something about it

00000000000000000000000


As far as London goes... I hope the best, and fear the worst...

I just saw Blair choking up as he made his announcement. This is so sad.

It would seem that it was a very effective coordinated strike. The underground must be a bastard of a thing, having to flush out the smoke to get to survivours, just thinking about the sarin attack in Japan, they are some of the weakest parts of cities.

The domestic intelligence services probably have a hitlist of individuals who may have involvement that they would be rounding up, as they rightly should.

I sincerely hope it isn't that many. I feel really lousy that I can't say more about my source, but I CAN say that they know this first hand, in an official capacity... and this is stuff that the BBC will neither confirm nor deny as it isn't public yet. I'm therefore hoping that his report of 25 is closer to the actual number of people dead - unlike the media, this person isn't merely speculating. You're right though - this is just the beginning.

Until the smoke clears, both literally and figuratively, I don't think that the public can know the extent of the damage and what was involved in the attacks.

Don't feel lousy about not naming names Sally, your obviously not one to make groundless comments and it is certainly and tragically quite plausible.

I just read a short interview with a swedish woman who was on board of the tubetrain at the time of the explosion (I don't know where). She told that people smashed windows with umbrellas to get air, and she saw people very severely injured.
