EXPLOSIONS IN LONDON - COULD BE TERRORIST ATTACK!

Postby Shazzam » Thu Jul 07, 2005 10:13 am

Live news tonight is reporting that there has been at least one huge explosion in London. Blowing the top off a double decker bus. The tube (subway system) in London has also been shutdown. Information coming out has said that there has also been an explosion at Kings Cross Station.

No one knows whether at this stage if it was a terrorist attack, however it seems likely.

Does anyone have anymore news about this terrible event ; less than 24 hours since London was celebrating winning the rights to host the 2012 Olympic Games.

There are six blasts in buses and tube systems. A Lots of people have bad injury. However, the government has no idea about how many casualites this monment. I'm watching BBC news on TV now.

If it happens two days ago, I think that London could not win the Olympic 2012 bid.

Tony Blair has just confirmed whatever one was thinking that it has been a terrorist attack. They are now saying that there were seven explosions.

Such a tragic event! I'm still so shocked as I'm sure the rest of the world is.

We can only hope that there aren't going to be too many fatalities.
