Pretty weird:

  • The G8 is having a meeting in the country
  • London gets the Olympic Games
  • Oil price at $68

and now the bombing…

Diversion or terrorists?

$68 now? :eek: (Haven’t runned into a news page yet.)

Hm…

1215 The ambulance service says there are people still trapped at King’s Cross station, and efforts are being made to rescue them

1210 The BBC’s Security Correspondent Frank Gardner says BBC monitoring services have located a website linked to al-Qaeda with a 200-word statement saying it carried out the bombings

1205 Prime Minister Tony Blair, at the G8 summit in Gleneagles, says there has been “a series of terrorist attacks in London… people have died and are seriously injured… It is reasonably clear this is designed and timed to coincide with the opening of the G8”. He says he will return to London within hours, but that the summit will continue without him

:a :a :a

Take care everyone in London, I’m sure the thoughts of many people around the world are with you. This also shows that security measures should never be underestimated, however I wonder if this could ever be prevented but those things should be discussed later, the first priority should be the casualties.


#12

Dito.


#13

It’s down again. Pretty quick though.

LONDON (Reuters) - Oil prices bounced back from a heavy drop on Thursday in reaction to a coordinated series of terror attacks on central London’s public transport system. US crude fell to a low of $57.20


#14

What country? :confused:
Oil prices hit US$62 a barrel, then plunge amid explosions in London


#15

(sigh)




#16

Maybe now the FBI will sort out their priorities and begin investigating terrorist groups in order to prevent these attacks instead of wasting their time chasing movie pirates!!


#17

Just a quick post to express my condolences, and my hope that none of our members and/or their relatives were injured or found their death in these disgusting attacks.


#18

You are choking right? :confused:


#19

Yes, I do. I would hope to see more of the CDFreaks members from the UK to check in and say they’re ok, whether in London directly or not. :iagree:

I ment joking, so are you?
