Although the news is sketchy at this time, it is clear that there has been a series of terrorist bombings this morning aimed at the London commuter system, several explosions on the subway and at least one bus blown up.

I wish to extend my condolences to the victims and their families and friends. Know that you have our deepest sympathies. And to the people of Great Britain, know that we stand ready, willing and able to assist in any way that is needed.

Ta brother...

Al-Qaida has just revindicate the action.

Has been a horrible morning for me. My son's mobile phone was a dead line but it was because practically all the communications went off and the nets are absolutely blocked.

In the end I did manage to talk to him and he is all right.

4 Underground stations and a bus has been targeted within the financial area of London. The news are a bit confused at the moment but the last report talks about 90 dead and a lot of seriously injured.

I think that at least we need to wait a couple of hours until they get full control of the situation.

It was expected long time ago but even so it is shocking. And London is not the best place to have this kind of situation with its narrow streets, old transport system and overcrowded place.

All trains to London have been suspended and so some highways and roads.

And your boss and our boss said that removing Saddam will make the world a better and safest place. That was the problem, they didn't say "The Earth". So let's go to move to the Moon...

Only one of the stations is not in the financial district but in the rich Arabic area of London: Edgward Road. They are punishing their own people for they luck of support.

Yes... the link fails a lot because the newspaper site is also practically jammed.

Keep trying and it will open eventually.

To our British friends --

I am so, so sorry and horrified this has happened to you. I was so very happy for you just yesterday about bringing home the Olympic venue triumph -- ironically, partly because I didn't really want it here in New York for a variety of reasons -- but this sudden turnaround in all your spirits, added to the fear, anger, confusion, destruction, and loss of life, must be very hard.

I know I'm not the only one in New York today wishing you the best possible recovery from this terrible turn of events. We are all talking about it here and processing it in our own ways -- but personally I am somewhere between rage, nausea, and deep sorrow.

The courage and resilience you folks are famous for is already making itself known, I know. But I wish with all my heart that it wasn't necessary.

My prayers are with the people of London, to the families of those that were injuried or killed, and to all of England. New York, Madrid, and now London.

I feel so hopeless here where I sit. I wish I could be there to lend whatever aid I could.

Those who prey on innocents garner no sympathies from me for whatever rage can be exacted opon them. To attack the military, or a government, is one thing. But today's events, done during morning rush hour and designed for maximum human devastation, are malicious, nefarious, savage - evil. These actions have absolutely no place in a civilized world. I cannot fathom how any person, ideology, or faith could condone such acts.

Deep peace and healing to the victims and their loved ones, and threefold death and destruction to the cowards responsible for inflicting such vicious, brutal, and thoroughly pointless suffering.

My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families, as well as all the soldiers which are trying to get the situation overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan and everywhere else under control - no matter from which country.

My heartfelt sympathies and condolences to victims and their loved ones.

Brother Shamalama, you forgot one: Bali, which was targeted because it is a popular vacation spot for Australians, who've supported the war on terrorism.

Deep heartfelt sympathy and support to all our family and friends in London and to our brothers & Sisters in England.

The acts of cowards and those who support and sympathize with them will find ruin on the Rocks of our resolve to bring an end to their murderous evil ways.

Damned in the Eyes of God.

As a British citizen, I am horrified by what has happened to our capital and the consequences on our United nation.

As a Welshman, I am angry for what has happened to our neighbours and our sister nation.

As a former University of London student, I feel for the people of London and worry about my friends (just been on the phone to my friend Emefa for 2 hours who lives at London Bridge and could constantly hear sirens in the background).

As a human being, I am disgusted by these atrocities.

I also want to tell how sorry I feel for those horrible things to happen.
Once again there were people killed and injured who had nothing to do with whatever those terrorist thought was reason enough to commit those attacks.
My thoughts are with those who were harmed, be it physical by actually being killed or injured or be it psychical by having someone dear hurt or lost.

I repeat what I already said back then, almost 4 years ago: I just can't imagine what makes people kill so many others, not by accident but willingly. I do not understand. And I can't prevent any of those things. We all stand somehow lost and sad.

But I hope. I do hope that there will be a time when things like that won't happen any longer. I hope that there will be a time when there will finally be peace and people won't murder others for whatever reasons, because there just are no reasons that are reasons, real reasons, for cruelty like that.

Whatever god, goddess or other higher power you might believe in, may they be with you and with everyone in and around London and everyone whose thoughts are with the victims, their families and London.

Siarls!
I am so glad your friend is okay - oh this news has upset me so much, I just learned about it and am so upset. London is one of my favorite cities, and England is where I left my heart, and this grieves me as if it was in my own city... I found a map on MSN showing where the Tube bombs were and they weren't far from where I'd been on my visit to London - all I can think about are how much I enjoyed using the Underground, how charming it seemed to this Southern girl who knows nothing but the isolation of car transportation... I still remember watching the other passengers on the train, noting how they were of all ages and seemed reserved, but when the need arose were so polite & kind to this 'foreigner'...

Keep us informed, I hope no one else here has had loved ones injured...

Siobhan

I was supposed to be travelling to London tomorrow morning in fact at 8.30, meaning that if the attacks had happened tomorrow at the same time - my friend and I would have been stranded in England as all train services were disrupted badly. The trip has been postponed although as of tomorrow all train services to London Paddington should be normal, despite Paddington being the first station after/before Edgware Road (depending on your direction). It's amazing how quickly London is back on its feet.

I still have one friend to hear from, otherwise all my beloved friends are safe, as are their families and friends. I'm sure my friend Marcos is safe because he is party animal student - there'd be no reason for him to be up so early!!!! I hope.

To all our British friends here on CR, I am very grateful to hear that you and your loved ones are safe and well. I have heard from three of my English friends and they are fine, although one missed the explosion by just mere minutes! I am still awaiting to hear from three others. This has had me very upset as well. Know that people all over the world are praying for your country at this very difficult time. May God bless, comfort and keep you all safe. Keep us posted on your family and friends.

This is, indeed a sad series of events. May the resillience of London and its people shine through this travesty.
