London Blasts

There have been at least six explosions in London, that appear to have targetted the transport system. There are reports of at least two dead. Nobody seems to have taken responsibilty as yet.

A roundup of blogs covering the blasts is up at Overtaken by Events. Wikipedia has an article up here. has pictures here.

Watching Tony Blair on the Beeb right now (read the text of his statement here), flanked by world leaders (including M. Singh). He seems on the verge of tears. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, also gave a statement, in which he urged solidarity.

Europhobia has a puported statement (you have to scroll down a bit) from the Jamaat al-Tandheem Al-Sierri (secret organization group) taking responsibilty.
