London Again?

I knew something was up when I heard a British voice come on the Radio on 590 AM KLBJ here in Austin, TX. Preliminary reports are coming in that there have been "incidents" in London again, exactly 2 weeks after the last bombing. Reportedly, there have been 3 incidents on the tube, and another one on a bus, possibly mimicking the brutal 7/7 attacks. However, so far there have been few reports of injuries (only one thus far), and no confirmation of actual bombs going off.

There are conflicting reports. MSNBC TV is reporting "nail bombs" on the Tube, but the BBC has this:

Dummy explosions using detonators only have sparked the evacuation of three Tube stations and the closure of three lines, a BBC correspondent has said.

Lots more coming in.

UPDATE #1: 8:06 AM - MSNBC is now reporting that there was a nail bomb at the Warren Street station. Reports are that it was in a backpack and was remotely detonated.

UPDATE #2: 8:13 AM - MSNBC (again) has reports that, due to the limited nature of these incidents, that Scotland Yard has speculated that this is more likely a "copycat" incident rather than an Al Qaeda operation (And this is purely speculation on my part, but these "incidents" took place around lunch, not during rush hour... I think Al Qaeda would have tried to maximize their casualties and attack during rush hour again).

UPDATE #3: 8:19 AM - The bus operator for the affected bus (the #26 bus) was interviewed, said there were no injuries on the bus, and only the windows were blown out on the upper deck.

Update #4: 8:23 AM - Reports that armed police have entered a hospital near the affected site (The London's University Hospital). Speculation that a suspect or suspects may be being treated there.

Update #5: 8:35 AM - Tony Blair should be addressing the Public within the hour, and President Bush should make a comment at 9 AM Central Time. I have to go to work now, so this will probably be the last of the updates, at least by me (Will might still add something). However, it does look like today's attacks (screw all this "incident" stuff) aren't on the same magnitude as the 7/7 attacks, and we should all be thankful for that.

In the wake of the last incident in London it has effected economic activity as well as political and emotional...

I hate these days when I am glued to the TV waiting for more (bad) information.

How do these terrorist manage to go undetected with all the cameras in London? It would seem bomb sniffing dogs would be of great regard for all forms of transportation? The timing of this situation should hopefully increase security for all countries.

Hello! Why haven't shut the entire train system down? Security? It is an interesting concept these days! I know the Brits speak about having a stiff upper lip and that the average Londoner will not be detoured over such an act? It just seems safety for the civilians is in jeopardy. I have much sympathy for the people in London. The responses to carry on is admirable!

The MSM are already asking?... Does Tony Blair feel responsible in any way for these attacks, because of policies towards Iraq...

Scottland Yard looking for unknown fugitives... What strange times we live in! Investigating sources are looking for Haroon Rashid Aswat. Crazy man crazy!
