Terror attacks in London

A double decker bus and the undergound system in London have been attacked.
Two people have been killed and scores have been injured after three blasts on the Underground network and another on a double-decker bus in London.

UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said it was "reasonably clear" there had been a series of terrorist attacks.

He said it was "particularly barbaric" that it was timed to coincide with the G8 summit. He is returning to London.

An Islamist website has posted a statement - purportedly from al-Qaeda - claiming it was behind the attacks.

My thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this attack.

I hope that Bush never again says something about fighting them there instead of here.
