Will tomorrow be another?

Tomorrow, Thursday, 4 August, marks two weeks since the last attempted terrorist attack in London, and 4 weeks since the first one, the successful one. Will there be another?

Sections of the London Underground that were damaged in the attacks of 7 July only re-opened today.

The first charges in the 7/21 case were brought today. Ismael Abdurahman was charged with "withholding information that could have led to the arrest of Hussain Osman, who allegedly tried to blow up a Tube train at Shepherd’s Bush on July 21."

And Hussain Osman, who slipped out of the country and went to Italy, is "afraid of going back to England, I am afraid of what might happen to me in prison, I am afraid of spending the rest of my life in a cell. I beg of you, do everything you can to keep me here."

Cry me a river.
