Someone bombed my favourite city.  Three bombs in the London Underground system, one on a double decker bus.

A series of bomb attacks on London's transport network has killed more than 30 people and injured about 700 others.  Three explosions on the Underground left 35 dead, two died in a blast on a bus and another died later in hospital.  Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said the bombings had "the hallmarks of an al-Qaeda-related attack".  Prime Minister Tony Blair promised the "most intense police and security service action to make sure we bring those responsible to justice".  Mr Blair, who had returned to London from the G8 summit in Gleneagles, condemned the terrorists and paid tribute to the stoicism and resilience of the people of London.

We used to visit London regularly, Guildford was only a half hour away by train, and the Circle Line was one we always used.  Go read this and this for a little perspective.
