The dirty face of terror

Earlier today, London was rocked by a series of bomb blasts. The toll is still rising with the number hovering around 30 right now. They targeted the mass transit system - hitting the underground with several blasts and also a bus. The first reports came in around 9:15 am, the peak of London rush hour. At this point, the city stand paralyzed - with all metro service and bus services shut down. There can't be enough words to condemn this attack.

Having been in and loved the city, I am extremely disappointed with this. New York is also in a state of high alert following the London attacks.

Apart from the obvious effects, the attacks have also shifted the focus of the ongoing G-8 towards security. And we were hoping this G-8 would be about poverty and its elimination.

These eye-witness accounts are chilling.
