    As a symbolic attack on america possibly. Or it could not have been AA specifically.
    Have they been captured now?

    So you think so? I'm not sure and I doubt it's connected.
    It wouldnt be surprising. It seems a pretty straightforward and quick attack.

    Announcement on the scene for everyone to evacuate immediately.

    Sky News just reported that 'Arabic shouting' and gunshots were heard before the explosion. I'd bet my life on it that this is another Islamic terror attack.
    BBC just reported this as well.

    My thoughts go out to everyone involved :sad:

    It makes me upset that people can actually leave the house with the intention to harm fellow human beings... It shouldn't be like this :sad:

    Yes, the BBC haven't given much information!
    The BBC tend not to say anything until it is confirmed.
