Four "attempts at explosions" have been reported here in London today - three London Underground stations and a bus. Seems like it's all pretty minor, though.

Police commisioner has said there were '4 small explosions.' Three at tubes and one on a bus. They are saying it appears that the detonators rather than the bombs exploded.

Londoners urged to 'stay where they are.'

One man arrested in last 20mins in Whitehall just outside Downing St, chased and on the ground, surrounded by armed police.

UCH (university college hospital) nr Warren St tube cordoned off. Only one injury reported and it is thought it is the man carrying one of the nail bombs. His back pack exploded and he may have gone to UCH for treatment. Not known if he has been found in the hospital.

London on 'Amber Alert' - the highest alert status. Confusion around 'bombs', as in what went wrong, why didn't they explode , were they dummy bombs with live detonators, is it linked to last bombings or a strange hoax.

I'm currently listening to Tony Blair praising Oz. I wonder if Little Johnny will speak next. BBC World Service says it is a joint news conference.

Police spokesman says 4 small explosions or attemped explosions, but significant none-the-less, & advises folks to resume business.

On another lighter note, the police earlier asked Londoners to be on the look out for ' a man with wires sticking out of his shirt.'

At least this time they kept all the passengers on the trains and buses together and started taking witness reports. Last time a lot of the walking wounded obviously left the scene. Practise makes perfect.

Manitas, CatsPHiddle and myself are accounted for and safe. I stood in the street and shouted out 'Thank you God, for making me such a lazy cow!!' Had I been arsed to get up, I would have been at work this morning and making my way home from Warren Street Station at just about the time the explosion happened.

Most people are just pissed off that they can't get home.. the cricket is still going on (England are trailing.....) and my work colleagues are stuck in the office..... I work in a tower block not 100mts away from Warren St. Tube.

As of 4pm: 4 attempted explosions, 3 tube, 1 bus. Smaller and nowhere near as much damage than 2 weeks ago and situation under control. Oval, Shepherds' Bush and Warren St stations, the bus is in Hackney Road. A man was being chased out of Warren St, but don't know in what context. The bus had its windows blown out, backpack found on the back seat of the upper deck. University College Hospital next to WS has been cordoned off which is possibly the result of the "lookout for .... man" comment.

Stay safe, people.

That's precisely why I left a word out. I don't know what colour, creed, race or inside leg measurement he was. I just reported what the BBC were saying and my own suggestions from that report.

I was in my local market when I heard the news, listening on my radio headphones; I was appalled by the racist comments that were being made by certain stallholders before we even knew what was happening, they won't be getting my trade again. And I will not incite anyone else to racist comments by jumping on Mr Bandwagon and shouting the odds about what race, religion or colour the pursued man was.

A man was chased out of Warren Street Tube. There is a report of an internal memo to be on the lookout for a particular man. It may not be the same man, but as the hospital is practically on top of the station, it's highly possible. No-one on the BBC has mentioned what race, colour or creed the chased man was.

Please don't let this thread go the same way as the previous one... let's just keep this for people to check in on.... like we did last time.

Always remember, the people doing the bombing, and the racists and sectarians stirring away in the aftermath have a shared agenda. They both want to set people against each other on the basis of religion or "race".

Responding to those kind of posts just encourages them to keep coming back. If we could all resist the tempttion to reply to them, but instead could just scroll past them and ignore them, they'd drift away soon enough - and if they didn't, so what, it's just graffiti.

David - Seems to me that you are contradicting yourself. From the "more Muslim intolerance" thread:

"The reason i refer to Asians in Keighley as Asians, is because to call them Pakistanis is untrue. They are not from Pakistan, they are from the UK, they are born in the UK. I am of course reffering to second, third generation UK born. The asians grooming young girls in Keighley are born in the country. First generation pakistanis, from my experience deplore the way their children behave, westernized to the extent they have no roots, and when it comes to drug dealing, the elders condemn this fully.

I think it is a bit hasty to claim to know what ethnics 'prefer' to be called. I also think it is irrelvant, as i'm not going to tiptoe on cobbled stones in order not to offend. Unless someone was calling someone a vicious name of abuse then i would speak out, but aside from that, it is irrelvant."

I am confused by your messages. Is this whats called political 'double-speak'?

Police are now saying the UCH incident was not connected to the bombings. Police are calling them 'exploded bombs.' Two men arrested and later released. One man on tube who had an exploding backpack legged it off the tube and got away despite people trying to stop him. Confusion reigns supreme.

I am no more afraid to say Muslim than I am to say Asian, but again, I will only say it if I know it to be true. No-one knows if this man was Muslim or not. I know many Muslims who are not Asian. Muslim (Islam) is a religion, not a race. I know even more Asians who are not Muslim. Don't confuse the two.

I envy you your ability to know a persons religious affiliation and ethnic background without a) meeting; b) seeing; c) hearing and d) being told by that person.

And what race are the muslims who are asian that you know?


"I know even more Asians who are not Muslim. Don't confuse the two".

Yes, thank you for repeating my earlier point, in which i said,

"Please don't get the idea that it is 'asians' who are to blame for these attacks, asian has a very broad meaning, and i tire of the media using the name asian to describe these attackers".

I agree, and that is why i tire of the media always describing the rioters in Bradford as Asians, when they were Muslim, and the same with the recent terror attacks, to call them asian is to criminalize every asian group, when the motive behind these attacks is not the fact that the killers are asian, but they are muslims who believe their faith gives them credence to kill.

I don't think the people who are from Pakistan (who are being called "Asian" in this thread), are technically considered a separate race from Europeans. Asians from countries like China and Japan are technically considered a different race from Europeans. Some Muslims who are technically considered Asians are those from Indonesia. I believe that people from what is now Pakistan can technically call themselves "Aryans", or at least descended from "Aryans". I hope this helps clear up some of the confusion so the discussion can get back to the subject of the situation in London.

The Goverment is trying to avoid the arguement that Blair's involvement with the Iraq War is causing the recent terrorism at home.
UK officials are saying that the terrorists* are South Asian Muslims and not the Arab Muslims from Iraq.

The distinction doesn't fly in my book, but the political Orwellian re definitions are flying fast and furious lately.

*Frankly I think it is too soon to say who did what.
Perhaps the issue of guilt will remain clouded forever.
Some people still think it is too soon to say who shot JFK.
