Breaking News: London Underground Shuts 

This morning I found myself in the chaos of a London without Tube service. A sign at the door of a station said "No service due to two explosions in Central London". I started to fear the worst. Later on, I noticed an area cordoned off around the Israel embassy.

News are of a series of accidents in a few tube stations, with several wounded and possibly seriously. At the moment, the nature of these accidents is not clear, as is the number of casualties.


UPDATE: The situation is evolving, and not for the better. Most media websites - BBC, Reuters, SkyNews - are down right now (09:52 GMT). But this report from the Italian La Repubblica points definitely towards the terrorist attack, with explosives placed on Underground trains and buses.
