    Maybe it was a suicide bomber on their way to one of the other stations and they let it off accidently?
    I posted that earlier but it got deleted for speculation

    While it's not in your country you can shut it out, almost believe that it'll never happen, but when it does then it brings home the reality of the threats innocent Iraqui citizens face every day and it's scary, a really scary thought

    and now we see how people in iraq feel like every day...

    Indeed,ppl dnt care wen others go thru this every day...but wen it happens to us, its a major thing...!maybe now ppl will be more open minded and more understanding about wat is happening in Iraq...

    i completely condemn the attacks and my heart goes out to the family n friends of those who are injured.

    symbolic perhaps? heart of the financial district and a station right opposite paddington green police station, where terror suspects are held.

    The City was surprisingly untouched (with the exception of the Stock Exchange - I'm guessing al-Qaeda have lost a small fortune...).

    This is about disruption - else they would have detonated an hour earlier and caused one hell of a loss of life...

    Its inevitable people are going to discuss these things.

    People die in Iraq as a result of similar types of blasts on a daily basis, but I've never seen you or anyone else criticise anyone discussing things regarding the Iraqi problem because someone died that day.

    My sympathy goes out to those involved, their friends and family and the emergency services who were increadibly brave, I don't know if I'd be able to do it.
    I'd also like to add, did anyone find some of the coverage a little too graphic this morning, I understand they want viewers to be informed but is filiming casulties getting out of an ambulance really nessecary? I found this coverage irresponsible and unfair on the casulties.

    I don't think anyone really shut out the horros of 9/11 or the Madrid attacks. I think it was always in the back of our minds and with the terror alerts and arrests, I think we were always, as horrible as it may sound, expecting an attack. A lot of analysts have been saying with London it's always been a matter of when, and not if terrorists will strike.

    Just got in (this is a clone of a message I just posted elsewhere, but can't see the point of re-phrasing it):

    I'm just devestated. We're still missing people - we had taken a certain amount of comfort in reports that people were still trapped on tubes underground. But how long can someone cope for on a Victorian tube system with inadequate ventilation? My god in 30 mins on a stalled train on the Central Line temperatures had reached 110 degrees F a week back.

    I'm now at home watching TV and realising that most of the dead are those on trains trapped...

    I just pray to God that people either died quickly or make it back to loved ones.

    I'm also offended by the reports on TV that our emergency services were overstretched. From what I can see, they did - and are still doing an amazing job. AS sad and horrific this whole event is, at least there are people out their who really care.

    Yeah I was listening to BBC Radio 4 I think it was and the woman said 'we apologise that we cannot bring you the news due to an emergency at the BBC' and it went onto automatic music
