London Attacked by Terrorists

London calling, and the news isn't good.

At 8:50 am local time terrorists detonated a series of explosive devices in London, England. The English authorities confirm at least four devices exploded this morning with unconfirmed reports putting the number as high as six. Most of the explosions took place on the Underground, the London subway system and at least one detonated on a "double decker" bus.

At last report, at least 190 people were being treated in London hospitals for injuries related to the explosions. At this time, there has been no official word on fatalities. An islamo-fascist group related to Al Queda has claimed responsibility on their web site. The group also warns of further attacks in Italy and Denmark if those countries do not withdraw troops from Iraq.

From those of us here in the U.S., our thoughts and prayers go out to our brothers in the U.K.
