Two die in London terror blasts 
 
Two people have been killed and scores have been injured after at least seven blasts on the Underground network and 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 the attack was timed to coincide with the G8 summit which he would be leaving to return to London.

The BBC's Frank Gardener said Arab sources believed al-Qaeda was to blame.

London's police chief Sir Ian Blair said traces of explosive had been found at one site.

He urged people to stay where they were and not to call emergency services unless it was a life-threatening situation.

Sir Ian said there had been "many casualties" but it was too early to put a figure to those killed or injured.

He reassured the public that an emergency plan was in place and the situation was "steadily coming under control".

Home Secretary Charles Clarke told reporters outside Downing Street: "The health services are in support to deal with the terrible injuries that there have been."

Scotland Yard said explosions have been reported at Edgware Road, King's Cross, Liverpool Street, Russell Square, Aldgate East and Moorgate.

All London Underground services have been suspended indefinitely and bus services in central London (Zone One) have been halted.

A spokesman for Vodafone said emergency services were being given priority access to the mobile phone network which was causing problems for other users.

One caller to BBC Five said his friend had seen "the bus ripped open like a can of sardines and bodies everywhere".

Loyita Worley, who works for a City law firm, said she was on the underground train when an explosion took place in the next carriage, while it was in a tunnel.

The 49-year-old said: "All the lights went out and the train came to an immediate halt. There was smoke everywhere and everyone was coughing and choking, but remained calm. We couldn't open the doors."

Once the doors were opened they were taken along to Liverpool Street station.

She said the carriage where an explosion happened was "black on the inside" and she saw people who appeared to have their clothes blown off.

She saw bodies lying inside the carriage.

  There was immediately smoke everywhere and it was hot and everybody panicked. People started screaming and crying

British Transport Police said incidents took place at Aldgate, Edgware Road, King's Cross, Old Street and Russell Square stations.

Hospitals have said they are no longer accepting non-emergency cases, BBC Five Live reported.

The National Grid, which supplies power to the Underground, said there had been no problems with its system which could have contributed to the incidents.

'Screaming and crying'

Jacqui Head, from BBC News, who had just left King's Cross station on a Piccadilly Line train as an explosion happened, said: "Everything was normal. Suddenly there was a massive bang, the train jolted.

"There was immediately smoke everywhere and it was hot and everybody panicked. People started screaming and crying."

The train was kept in the tunnel for 20 minutes and no announcement was made to explain the delay to passengers, she added.

London Fire Brigade said four crews were at Liverpool Street and more were on their way.

Another passenger, who had left the Tube at Fenchurch Street Station, and walked to Aldgate East, told BBC Five Live that he saw injured people.

"As I walked through the bus station I could see people lying on the ground, black, as if they'd been covered in smoke. There were about three or four people on the floor being treated."

So within 48 hours of us getting the 2012 Olympics, we're being bombed. What is the world coming to?

I don't believe this has a lot to do with the Olympics but I can be wrong. I think this has all to do with the G8 that is currently held in Scotland.

We watched the extra news an hour ago and there they said that probably al-Qaeda  is behind all of this. They had no idea how many people were killed or injured yet.

I wonder when this killing innocent people is going to stop.

Edit: I just hear on the radio that Israeli minister Netanjahu (SP?) apparently was one of the targets for the attacks.

Thats what I heard as well.
It makes me physically sick that anyone could do this,. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims and the victims themselves.

I'm so scared of what could happen next....

Al-Qaeda has revindicated this attack and says that the next countries will be Italy and Dennmark.

It is very weird that these news were firstly given by a german newspaper, because it was also from Germany that a few terrorists came from to hit the worldtrade center.

Terrorism will not win or intimidate people. My prayers to all british, particularly londoners.

I am terribly sorry for all the terror that happened to the people in London. I can't believe that humans do this to humans.

So sorry, I feel with the people in London

I'm not surprise that is Al-Qaeda.
Italy, Great-Britain and Dennmark have participated at the Irak War, so terrorists want get revenge.

I wonder if someone on this forum was or live in London and heard/seen something?

I've been watching the news most of the day and i'm pretty horrified by what has happened, i can't understand why people would do such a thing, i'm guessing that it may have something to do with the G8 meeting but that is only speculation. My thoughts are with those who were involved and i hope that anyone on the board who lives in london is ok.

Boy, I'm glad I decided not to go to the UK this summer, like I'd been thinking about doing! My suitemate went though, and I haven't heard from her yet. I have no idea whether she was on the train, or the bus, or what.

This is the most revolting thing to have happened since 9/11.  This morning I woke up with the TV blaring about bombs in London.  It pissed me off so much I couldn't see straight.  When the hell is this going to stop???

I knew the G8 would ruffle a bunch of feathers and, truthfully, I suspected something like this would happen.  I mean, what possesses people to kill other innocent people?  What, are they sick?? 

Does anyone on the board live in London?  This is so sad and disgusting.  I can't believe it.  I'm too horrified to say too much, but my prayers are definitely uplifted to everyone there.

To be honest, I don't quite understand the G8 thing. What does that have to do with the bombing? (I thought it was just a charity concert...)
