    There's been a two major explosions at two separate underground stations, liverpool & Aldgate station in London and also an explosion on a bus. So far, there's not been any deaths, one person in critical condition and several injuries.

    Let's just hope & pray dat it's not as serious as it sounds.

    And dis is country dat just won d bid to host Olympics in 7 yrs time.

    Hmmmm......I worry for UK o.

    God is great you know, the God that created the mind of someone like Dr. King that believe that helping other is highly important is the same God that created the mind of these extremers that believed that killing, bombing, and going on suicide mission is a act for God.

    So far, there's no mention of official number of casualties or deaths. All bus services & train services in central London are halted.

    The whole underground has been suspended. Bus services in the whole of central London has been suspended.

    Also it's been confirmed that there were at least 6 separate blasts in London today one of them happened on a bus.

    Financial markets have been affected, the FTSE is down by almost 160.... the pound is down against the dollar by almost a cent.

    Emergency services are walking at their max capacity...but remain cool and professional.

    More news still rolling in.
