London in midst of terrorist attacks

A number of people have been killed and dozens injured in a large-scale terrorist attack on London. At least six bomb blasts have been reported in locations across the city on buses and Tube stations. Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair said there was evidence of explosives at at least one of the six sites.

Scotland Yard has denied reports they were warned of an attack by Israel minutes before the blasts. Two people have been confirmed dead and at least 90 people injured in the explosion at Aldgate Station. Prime Minister Tony Blair is returning to London from the G8 Summit in Scotland.

Confirmation of the locations affected in the attack are: King's Cross, Tavistock Square, Russell Square, Liverpool Street, Moorgate, Aldgate East and Edgware Road.

Update: A terror group linked to al Qaeda says it carried out a series of terror attacks on London that have left a number of people dead and hundreds injured. A previously unknown group calling itself "Secret Organisation al Qaeda in Europe" said it carried out the attacks as revenge for British "military massacres" in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved. Emergency numbers can be found by clicking read more.
