'Police shot bombers' reports New Zealander

[nzherald] - A New Zealander working for Reuters in London says two colleagues witnessed the unconfirmed shooting by police of two apparent suicide bombers outside the HSBC tower at Canary Wharf in London.

The New Zealander, who did not want to be named, said the killing of the two men wearing bombs happened at 10.30am on Thursday (London time). Following the shooting, the 8000 workers in the 44-storey tower were told to stay away from windows and remain in the building for at least six hours, the New Zealand man said.

He was not prepared to give the names of his two English colleagues, who he said witnessed the shooting from a building across the road from the tower. Reports of attacks carried out by suicide bombers have been rife in London.

Canada's Globe and Mail newspaper reported an unconfirmed incident of police shooting a bomber outside the HSBC tower. Canadian Brendan Spinks, who works on the 18th floor of the tower, said he saw a "massive rush of policemen" outside the building after London was rocked by the bombings.
WagNews: This is a rumor mill method of suggesting that suicide bombers might, maybe, possibly linked to the London bombings. This dreadful rubbish isn't even attributed. Just some New Zeland guy it seems. lol

Interesting how nobody ever wants to be named anymore. This means that virtually everything we read in the papers these days could just be made up.

I heard about this too! I work for a company which has offices located in London and shortly after the explosions took place, news of two terrorists being shot dead was flying around the office...shortly after this story was quickly forgotton due to the fact mainstream media made no mention of it.
