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.

He's not in London at the time. Anyway, it's terrible to hear the news from London. These days I simply watch TV much more.

I was really upset when I heard the news.
I don't know what's the gain of killing people every where it's really terrible thing. The reall muslim won't do that.
I hope god help those people families every where.
I've heard about the egyptian minister crime in Iraq and I as Mr LOve said what AL QAEDA wants out of killing people? :(

i really felt terrible when hearing this news and felt sorry for those poor inosent people who have been injured or dead and i am really ashamed of those who call them selves muslims they are not they are not they are not muslims they are mentally sick .... :evil: i just want them to come back to there real religion and to ask God to forgive them, if they return to Quraan they would never find just one sentence that approves these terrorest attacks ....they are insulting humanity and may be forgetting that we are humans just like them :x

Politicians are guilty. If they want to fight, then let them fight but just them. Lock them in a room and let them fight against each other if that's what they want. Do not involve innocent people. This is unnacceptable.

It appears the British Police forces are making some headway into who actually planted the bombs last week; plus on the suicide bomber? Does anyone else have any news. I have only been able to grab a few sketchy reports. It was also nice to hear that they observed a minutes silence yesterday to remember those that lost their lives. It appears that tragedy is still unfolding on the train line (with more bodies being found). It just makes my heart feel sick..... :cry:

I have just seen an inspirational picture on a website called ninemsn.com.au. it is a picture of a group of English people holding up a large union jack (flag) with the words we are not afraid written across it. Good to see that the latest round of terrorist attacks have not attacked these people's spirits and determination.

8) 8) 8) :D :D :D

Australia has suffered its first fatality from the London Bombings. Sam Ly a 28 year old from Melbourne Victoria has died he was victim number 54. The whole of Australia is devastated. There are still a couple of Australians in intensive care. One victim has had both her legs amputated..

Have any other members heard of victims from their countries. It has touched everyone from what I have heard.

You should try and make contact with him. I'm sure everything will be ok. The government and members of all the churches there are joining together to help people understand that Muslims are good people.....There is evil in any religion. I hope you hear from your friend soon!

The Aussie Police don't usually come to just "anybody's" residence. They do not harrass Muslims. They must have suspicions about him in particular for having knowlege of criminal activity. What type of questions do the police ask your friend?

There were Pakistanis born English involved in this case, and gosh, my manager (Pakistani) was ashamed when I was talking about this. Usually she would talk about all the big events that were happening, but this time she was as quiet as a clam. Same thing for several Pakistanis in my class. How sad.
I remember the incident of 9-11, some Muslim students in my school was attacked by others. They didn't get beaten up or anything, but their cars did. And they got rude attention from other students. It was sad. One Muslim student in my class got security taking her to her every class, so other students would not attack her.
