London Attacked Again

This morning I woke up to the news that London had been attacked again.

Four bombs. Three subways. One bus.

Thankfully, it does not appear that there were no major injuries or any deaths.

Apparently the bombs did not go off correctly.

Reports suggest only the detonators on the devices went off.

Detectives investigating the attacks are working on the basis that the bombs were not properly primed, sources have said.

That could explain eyewitness accounts of suspects fleeing the scenes of at least some of the blasts.
Two men have been arrested, but no word on if they were the terrorists from the subway cars and bus.

If the Nazi bombings of London didn't scare the English from their resolve, some little flys like these terrorists aren't going to either.
