The roof is still on, thank God. Do you think it could have been a bio/chemical attack?

BBC News Update



Sir Ian appealed to Londoners to stay where they were and said the transport system was effectively being shut down.

The minor explosions - just two weeks after blasts killed 56 - involved detonators only, a BBC reporter said.

Police said officers in protective clothing had been deployed to Warren Street to examine the scene.





I saw an Asian man reaching towards his backpack, when it exploded with a bright light. He appeared shocked, and dumped the bag almost immediately and fled the seen. Three people around him attempted to prevent him leaving, but failed.


3 people!!! How big was this guy? I know British people are not very strong but really.



Scotland Yard have confirmed there is an incident involving armed police officers at University College Hospital in Bloomsbury close to Warren Street station.

A man was also arrested by armed police at the gates of Downing Street.

An internal memo to staff at the hospital has warned them to be on the lookout for a black male, possibly of Asian origin, about 6ft 2ins tall, wearing a blue top with wires protruding from the rear of the top.

Sky News just showed the man being arrested by police, couldn't work out his nationality (white probably, or very light Asian), he had a black top on (it looked open) and he had dark hair, with dark glasses on.

Police are on shoot to kill, thats probably why the cameras are off. I dont think they want the public to see them kill someone one on national TV.

Do you mind? 'British' is an amalgm of many peoples... and I think stupid jokes/remarks like this are not really fitting for the time.. or for a news thread.

ceasefire doesn`t mean a thing to the IRA (real , continuity or NORAID provo`s)

If they wanted to blow something up, they will.

Are you serious?? Why would you say something so utterly stupid? Have you ever even been to the UK? If you haven't I suggest you do and make this statement at any pub or football match. And please upload pics of yourself when/if they release you from hospital. Sheesh.

This is looking more and more like it's a botched real terrorist attempt or one that was meant more just for effect and causing chaos rather than killing.

It could be some Islamic group that tried a copycat attack but didn't have the al Qaeda ties to get expertise or it could be something completely unrelated.


Yes it could, dj77.
Or it could be an attempt by neo-suprematists to avenge the attacks two weeks ago.
And therefore, increase the race/religious tensions.

Sanc'.

Forget the IRA, this is just a small exercise to ramp up the fear - the British response to 7/7 was obviously too phlegmatic

Why is it that all of the major 'Western' terrorist attacks (9/11, 3/11, 7/7 and now 7/21) have occurred on odd numbered days/months? Also, the numbers are always 3, 7, 11 or multiples thereof? The coincidence is pretty amazing.

jtma508 just think about it:
3,6,9,12,15,18,21,24,27,30.
7,14,21,28,
11,22.

That's half of the month it can be on.

It's breaking news any information is good.

British IS an amalgm of meny peoples, but this isn't about being PC.
With the chaos that surrounds reports like this, I don't think we should be trying to get into the perps have a right to carry a british passport or not.

And it wasn't bad humour, the british (which I am proud to be a member!) built a whole empire on staring adverseity in the face with good humour. (Well thaht and stomping on countries that didn't want us, which may be half the trouble.)

Yeah, coincidence. Blair just said this was to create more fear and anxiety.
Failed to state it was his own intent

dh, if Blair wishes at this moment in time he can pass any law he so wished using an Order in council as part of his delegated legislation.

He didn't need to make more fear, he could have done this last time.

If he wished he could have brought Martial Law about.

Please, before you go talking about the British Legal System and laws, look at the powers the PM has.

well I WASNT bringing any issues about being PC/passports/immigration or anythinglike that... merely saying that there is no predication for 'british' people being strong/weak whatever (it doesnt really hold for anyone really..) , and being 'British' and a Londoner my whole life.. I didnt find the last remark very funny or pertinent. [in response to post quoting myself]
