So this may be grim, but it's interesting and kind of shows how these things unfold in our little media world. I'm on the BBC Breaking News e-mail alert, and this is how this morning's horrible news was announced:
9:43 a.m. (London time, I believe.)
Number of Tube stations in London are evacuated after reports of a loud
bang near Liverpool Street station which may be due to power surge.
Police confirm reports of "multiple explosions" in London. Several hurt
in major incident on tube and blast on a bus in Tavistock Place.
Police in London have confirmed that two people have been killed at
Aldgate East, one of the underground rail stations hit by explosions.
Tony Blair is to fly to London, describing the attacks in the capital
as barbaric terrorist attacks timed to coincide with the G8 summit.
The leaders of the G8 major industrialised countries have issued a
statement condemning the London attacks and vowing "to defeat terrorism".
Police say at least 33 people are confirmed killed in the explosions
which struck London's transport network.
I remember talking to Chris and Lisa H. after Madrid and how weirded out they were that they had been in the very station that was attacked. It looks like one of the ones hit this morning was King's Cross, which is the one you use to get to the British Library. Where I've been. And yes, I'm weirded out.
