More London Blasts
    #4432291 - 07/21/05 09:23 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4703777.stm

Minor explosions using detonators only have sparked the evacuation of three Tube stations and the closure of three lines, a BBC correspondent has said.
Police cordoned off large areas around Warren Street, Oval and Shepherd's Bush Tube stations.

A route 26 bus in Hackney Road in Bethnal Green had its windows blown out by a blast. There were no injuries.

Police in London say they are not treating the incidents as "a major incident yet".

One person was injured at Warren Street, although the person's condition is unknown.

The whole of the Northern Line has been suspended, along with the Victoria Line and the Hammersmith and City line.

The BBC's Andrew Winstanley said devices had been found but appeared to have been dummies.

London Underground went to an amber alert with trains taken to the next station and evacuated.

An eyewitness at Oval station said there had been a small bang, and a man had then run off when the Tube reached the station.


Police have set up cordons round the stations

A spokesman for Stagecoach said the driver of the number 26 bus travelling through Shoreditch had heard a bang on upper deck, gone upstairs and seen the windows were blown out.

The bus driver was very shaken but said to be fine.

At Shepherd's Bush station, police told reporters that a man had threatened to blow himself up and then ran off.

Sosiane Mohellavi, 35, was travelling from Oxford Circus to Walthamstow when she was evacuated from a train at Warren Street.

"I was in the carriage and we smelt smoke - it was like something was burning.

"Everyone was panicked and people were screaming. We had to pull the alarm. I am still shaking."

The BBC's Rory Barnett said there had been no smoke on the platform at Warren St.

Liz Edwards, who works near Warren Street Underground station, said the area was full of activity.

"There are police, fire engines and ambulances all around there. A guy from our office had just come back from the station and said the police were aggressively keeping people away from the station and that you could not get anywhere near it."

Hmm i'm not really surprised. Did anyone else get a scapegoat vibe from the four suspected london terrorists? I mean, i haven't seen much of anything as far as proof of any kind. All i've seen is a grainy security cam picture of four dark skinned people with book bags who are doing something, somewhere, at some point in the past. Case closed i guess  :rolleyes:

Anyways this could mean a few different things. It could be that the four people named for the bombings were indeed just scapegoats and the real terrorists are making a public statement about it by recreating their attacks (while showing a bit of mercy, which actually brings up an interesting idea about non-lethal terrorism - spreading fear once the seed is planted)

Or it could mean that there are other cells and that they are either copying a successful terrorist act, or they are acting out an order from above.

Or it's just some random assholes who are trying to pull off a copy cat crime. It could be anarchists or something. The amount of details identical to the original crime make this unlikely though because of the scope of the crime and the number of people involved to pull it off.

Whoever it is, they are trying to say one thing: we can get you whenever you want.

It sucks to be in London right now.

Sounds like a bodged batch of explosives if none of them went off properly. It'll be done right eventually, sooner rather than later.. just remember not to use public transport on Thursdays :p

"four suspected london terrorists"

Yeah I'm still waiting for evidence on this. Meanwhile millions of people just believe what they hear on TV without any evidence to back up the claims.

Exactly my thoughts. From the reports it sounds like the main explosive failed to detonate. Good news is that it will provide law enforcement will a good deal of evidence to go on. A mostly intact device, and the perpetrators themselves are still alive, and likely to be caught.
