4 Bombs Rock London: Scores Dead, Hundreds Hurt
Thu Jul 7 2005
Current Reports of 50 Dead and Over 700 Injured in London Blasts
7/8: As the subway lines are now re-opened and London attempts a return to normalcy, authorities are reporting that 50 people are confirmed dead in the bomb attacks, with at least 10 more expected to be found as they search through the rubble in the subway system. The number killed on the double-decker bus has been reported as thirteen. Investigators at this point believe each bomb weighed less than 10 pounds and could have fit into a backpack. The preliminary presumption regarding responsibility is that the bombers were part of an al-Qaida cell but no further information about perpetrators is available. The significance and meaning of the attack is being debated across the media.
7/7, 1:50pm PST: Casualty figures in the coordinated attacks have risen to 37 dead and over 700 wounded with many of those in critical condition. British authorities are said to be in search of perpetrators. It is still unknown if suicide bombers or placed-explosives are to blame. Conspiracy theories have begun to fly around the internet as to who is responsible, possible motives, and who might stand to gain or lose politically from the attacks.
7/7, 8:35am PST: In London this morning, three subway bombs and one in a double-decker bus have killed scores of people. At the moment, reports are in that at least 21 have died in one subway attack, 5 in another, and 7 in the third, while it is unknown the number killed in totally destroyed double-decker bus. London's transport system has been shut down. A group calling itself "Secret Organization Group of al Qaida of Jihad Organization in Europe" has claimed responsibility. Tony Blair has said he is returning to London from Gleneagles.

In the Bay Area, D.C., and nationwide transportation officials are on heightened alert. US officials have raised terror alert system to "Code Orange" for domestic mass transit.
