Small Bomb Incidents Paralyse London

There have been reports of an explosion on the London Underground and three subway lines have been closed temporarily.

Four stations, Warren Street, Shepherds Bush, Oval and Oxford Circus, have been evacuated. Smoke was reported coming from one station.

BBC radio said that several "dummy" bombs or detonators exploded but authorities have not confirmed that. Other reports say an explosion in a haversack being carried by a tube traveller in Warren Street led to the alert.

In the Hackney area, police and sniffer dogs are reported surrounding a bus which had a number of windows blown out by a small device. But, other reports say there is a suspect package on the bus.

There has been just one casualty so far reported arising from the reported incidents.

Could it be that the new bomb attacks are intented to take the media focus away from the first bomb attacks, espessially the bus bomb. Just trowing an idea...

A bit more fear would help pass new orwellian laws. Keep the sheep afraid, don't let them look up.
Bombs equal fear equal new laws
problem reaction solution
That easy to figure out!!!!!

Reported on TV news, a witness on the bus reported that no windows were blown out, she restated, no windows were blown out, i have a photo. However the anchorman went on to report "police report that windows were blown out".

When the original 7/7 attacks proved to be unsuccessful when that 2nd bus bomb did not detonate, I KNEW there would be another attack to sufficiently silence the naysayers. Remember the original report from those reporters at the scene? There was a 2nd bomb reported along with the two mysterious shootings still unreported that happened at Canary Wharf.

Yep. A bit of both. The new attacks were timed exacty at the point where skepticism about the first attacks was already kicking. Best tactic - move things on a bit.(Esp. the legislation.)
