London Attacked


"London was struck by a series of at least six separate and apparently coordinated explosions in its subways and buses during the morning rush hour this morning," the Times is reporting.CNN adds:

The blasts caused chaos and panic across the city, with bloodied survivors emerging from stations and receiving treatment on sidewalks. The mobile phone network was overloaded, and many struggled to even let others know that they were safe.In the first report of casualties, City of London police told CNN there had been two fatalities at Aldgate east station. At least 90 people are reported to have been injured.Blair said: "It is reasonably clear there have been a series of terrorist attacks in London." There have been casualties, he said "both people that have died and people seriously injured.""It's particularly barbaric that this has happened" on a day that people are meeting to deal with world problems at the G8 in Scotland.
THERE'S MORE: As of 12:53pm eastern time, the death toll has risen to 33, according to the Washington Post. The BBC has first-hand reports from victims and from its correspondents.For the best analysis of the unfolding events in London, however, be sure to check the Counterterrorism Blog.
