Five blasts on the underground, one on a bus. It is horrendous. It is clear that it is terrorist attacks.

I checked that link and all local news site, 90 injured so far and two dead... I can't believe they're back, all way from 9-11 we had only false alarms...

This is devistating, the worst news. Damn, there has to be change. The word is out that there is so much corruption what is it going to take before it is turned around? Poor London I feel for the innocent people who are suffering. Terrorism is pure evil.

Hi all - it is quite chaotic here at the moment. All transport has been halted and there are police racing everywhere. I hope all Cohenites in and around London are OK. Let us know you are safe.

Prayers for all of those affected by this attack. The news had not made our morning papers and I did not have a TV or radio on so I learned about it here.

Good to know you are OK Paula. I hope other Londoners in here are also OK. This is very sudden and quite shocking. Yet again..

This is terrible news - whilst many (including myself) have been expecting such an event in London, you keep hoping it won't transpire! :shock:

I'm so pleased you're safe, Paula. I hope the same for Michael (Wolkind) and trust he communicates the same to us soon!

My thoughts are with all Londoners and my condolences go to those who have already been directly impacted in terms of their family members and friends, as well as to those who will be so impacted as the tragedy unfolds. :cry:

Yes, Paula, glad you're OK. I do hope Michael and anyone else over there in London could let us now they're well.

Such terrible news.

I'm glad you are safe Paula, my thoughts are with all those in London right now.

The death toll has now risen to 37, with over 700 injured, many very badly.

Dear Paula, Megan, Philo, Michael, and all other Londoners ~

I'm very relieved to hear you're okay, Paula and Megan. I hope I hear from Philo soon, and that we all hear from Michael. I'm believing that no one you know, or are related to, was involved in this horrible tragedy, and that your sisters are okay, too.

I hope that everyone else from here who has to be in London for any reason is okay, too.

My heart aches looking at these pictures, and reading about what happened and the additional threats to Italy and Denmark. I can't imagine what the city must be like right now. I'm sure chaos is an understatement.

My heart is with all of you and with all of London.

Love,
Elizabeth
